- 8 ounces cranberry sauce
- 1 tablespoon horseradish
- 2 tablespoons oil

In a small bowl, combine cranberry sauce and horseradish. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Heat oil in a medium saute pan over medium-high heat. Season scallops with salt and pepper. When oil is hot, add scallops and sear on both sides until browned. Remove from heat, but keep warm.
Divide sprouts among 2 plates, and make a bird's nest on each plate with the sprouts. Spoon cranberry sauce mixture into the center of the bird's nest. Garnish with snow pea shoots. Place scallops around the bird's nest and serve immediately.
