Butter-Fried Scallops and Cauliflower Mash

Scallops are best if you're looking for a special recipe to enjoy with your partner on Valentine's Day. Not only they're considered an aphrodisiac food, but they're delicious and pretty easy to make. For this one, you have to sear the scallops in butter until they crisp on the outside - this will enhance their sweet taste. Serve them with smooth cauliflower mash, pan-fried mushrooms, and bacon.
