For an elegant meal, look no further than this light and tasty dish. These pan-seared scallops may be small, but they’re heavy on the flavor: a sauce made of orange juice, vermouth, and butter makes a tart dressing that perfectly balances the sweetness of the scallops and that brings out the flavors of the pancetta. Small servings—three scallops per plate—mean this recipe pairs perfectly with a big salad or another side dish.
