  • Sprinkle scallops with pepper. Melt butter in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add scallops, spreading to form even layer in skillet; cook 2 to 3 min. on each side or just until firm and browned on both sides. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.
  • Add tomatoes and garlic to skillet; cook and stir on medium heat 1 min. Stir in wine, broth and olives; simmer 2 min. or until liquid is reduced by half.
  • Stir in 1 Tbsp. chives, mint and lime juice. Add scallops; stir. Simmer on low heat 1 min. or until heated through. Add pasta; toss to coat. Transfer to bowl; top with cheese and remaining chives.

How to Successfully Sear Scallops

In order for the scallops to brown (and not steam) in skillet, pat them dry with paper towels before cooking as directed.


Substitute fresh lemon juice for the lime juice.


If your skillet is not large enough to fit all the scallops in a single layer in skillet, cook scallops in batches.
