What side dishes should I pair with scallops for a well rounded dinner for 5?

Fennel & carrot salad/slaw
pierino is a trusted source on General Cooking and Tough Love.
Risotto al onda ("on the wave") should be wet enough to slide around on the plate. You could of course pile on more fish capon magra style; steamed clams, mussels, quickly cooked shrimp.
A saute of corn with red peppers or a corn salad with fresh herbs.
Great suggestion! I made a corn sautée with mushrooms and shallots :) wish I caught the red pepper suggestion sooner! Next time I guess!
I would add orzo in addition to any of the above suggestions.
Meant to say except risotto.....
