Black and Orange Recipe: Poppy-Crusted Sea Scallops on Fennel and Orange Salad

Everyday this month, we'll have something Halloween-inspired for you in the morning.

On Wednesdays, it will always be an original black and orange recipe that's simple, festive, and elegant. Nothing scary about it—except the colors!

This first salad pairs white fennel with Navel oranges, or if you prefer a sanguine effect, blood oranges. Crowning the top are black poppy-speckled, seared sea scallops. The sweetness of the oranges and the scallops coupled with the licorice twist of the fennel makes this something like grown-up candy. A sophisticated and fresher alternative, I'd say!
