Scallops are easy, delicious and elegant. These are not your typical fried or broiled. Grand Marnier is an orange liquor and when combined with cream, wine and orange juice makes for a wonderfully different experience! These have a nice fresh citrusy flavor and are so very easy! Serve with wild rice on the side.
