1⁄2 , finely chopped
1 Pound, thawed (Sea Scallops)
4 Tablespoon (For Dredging)
Freshly ground pepper
Dry white wine

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet. Saute shallots over medium heat until soft and browned. About 5 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and reserve for sauce later.
Sift together the salt, pepper and cayenne pepper in a bowl.
Pat scallops dry with paper towels. Dredge very lightly with flour mixture.
Increase heat under pan to high; sear half of scallops for 1 minute. Turn and cook other side for 2 minutes; set aside. Add rest of oil to pan, add shallots back to the pan and add the wine, lemon juice and orange juice to the pan and reduce by half.
Taste for sweetness; add more lemon juice, salt, and pepper if necessary.
Add the scallops back to the pan, cover with sauce and warm through, serve immediately with Rosemary Vapor Rice.
