Default Side dish for scallop dinner?

GF wants scallops for her birthday dinner this weekend. I got scallops, they're effortless. But what do I do for a side dish?

We stay away from grain/rice/starch, so that limits my options. My first thought was wilted greens of some sort, but that's all I got.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the responses so far......except cepx111, not you.

I'm leaning towards asparagus at this point. I guess I was looking for something different since we eat a ton of asparagus normally, but rarely scallops. Seems like a good fit.

We're going to her family's place in the mountains, so I've got a Weber and a stove to work with. A little limited, but I don't use the oven that much anyway.

We make a dish with Orzo. Orzo is perfect with scallops.

Here is a recipe that you can change to suit.

Spinach salad with hot bacon dressing.

Roast butternut squash with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and cracked pepper. Drizzle with top shelf balsamic vinegar, top with parmigiano reggiano shavings. Again use the real stuff. Incredible difference.
