Notes

Sea scallops are one of my favorite dishes to prepare, and they look impressive with very little work. Get them fresh if you can, but frozen scallops will be fine, as long as you thaw them well before marinating. If you can't find sea scallops, you can substitute bay scallops. You should be able to find stone ground mustard in your market, but if not you may use a good quality dijon. However, the grainy mustard is what really gives this recipe kick! This dish is fantastic with my Strawberry Spinach Salad as an accompaniment.
