Seared Scallops with Fennel & Spinach

Seared Scallops with Fennel & Spinach

20-minute recipe Serves 4
Everything about this dish is speedy. The buttery-soft quick seared scallops. The wilted fennel and baby spinach. The fresh and zesty orange segments. The bright acidity cuts through the saucy vegetables and lifts up the scallops. Serve with roasted potatoes to make it a full meal.
