Generally scallops are paired with ingredients that highlight the natural sweetness in the scallop, however in this Food52 recipe the scallops' briny flavors are emphasized. Pairing them with a couscous scented with roasted lemons, capers (and caper berries), and a sauce bright with both lemon zest and juice emphasizes all the briny notes of the scallops.
