This 30-minute stir-fry salad-for-two offers an abundance of flavor and texture. Scallops and vegetables are stir-fried in a delicious orange-sesame-soy mixture and served on a bed of spinach and cabbage. If your market doesn't offer bay scallops, you can substitute the larger sea scallops—just cut them in half crosswise before cooking.
