Ingredients
  

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp shallot chopped
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/3 cup cauliflower riced
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 6 scallops - large (1/4 lb total, about 1 inch thick each)
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 3 cups frisée lettuce loosely packed
  • 1 lemon quartered

Instructions
 

  • In a large sauté pan, heat 1 teaspoon of the oil over medium heat.
  • Turn the heat down, add the shallot, and cook, stirring frequently to avoid browning, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the chicken broth, turn the heat to medium, and simmer to soften the shallot and reduce the liquid, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the cauliflower and cook until tender, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the parmesan and butter. Set the risotto aside.
  • Season the scallops with salt and pepper.
  • In a small sauté pan, heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil over medium heat and sauté the scallops until just cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • To serve, divide the risotto between 2 dinner plates, top with a tangle of frisée squeeze 1/4 lemon over each, top with 3 scallops, and serve with a lemon wedge.
