I love them with polenta, seared/grilled veggies like spring onions, corn, fennel, cauliflower and asparagus, fresh pea puree, Oaxacan black bean, over a risotto, with mentsuyu, sesame and soba, i could go on....scallops are one of those things that pair with relatively ANYTHING that's in season. I can't really think of anything that I wouldn't pair scallops in, unless its heavy.

Scallops are very versatile, but knowing how you're preparing them would help in making specific suggestions - simple seared, or with a sauce, a flavor direction...

I love them simply seared served with sauteed spinach and lemony orzo or a nice risotto.
