Grilled Scallops With Lemon Soy Sauce And Roasted Vegetable Couscous Salad

Don’t say I never taught you anything.

Well, it’s not me doing the teaching here, but the video is very entertaining and informative.

Especially if you go to black tie events all of the time, like I do, and you have to help your man get his tie on.

If you want a dinner that looks and tastes as fancy-schmancy as a bow tie, I’ve got one here.

This is truly a 30 minute meal.

Use your favorite vegetables in the couscous. I had to use up some bell peppers and turnips, but next time I will add some carrots and zucchini for a bigger color punch.

That Lemon Soy Sauce? Divine Dahling.
