I love to make this on nights when I have to eat solo. It's so fast and easy. (Just 4-5 scallops will do for one, just half the measurements of the other ingredients). You can make it Italian or Asian style.
1lb scallops (or less)
4T olive oil
2 T fresh basil
4T sesame oil
Heat oil and garlic/ginger. Add scallops and tomatoes and saute until cooked. Serve over pasta.
