This is one of those dishes that is outrageously easy to make - but is sure to please to the very last bite. Plus, it's incredibly hearty but light enough to indulge in often. Just be sure to select the freshest scallops you can possibly get your hands on. The brightness of the lemon zest, white wine and fresh parsley adds a welcome flavor combination on a cold night.
Wine pairing suggestion: A nice, crisp white will work well here. Try a medium-bodied Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris.
