Ingredients:  
4 large red bell peppers (2 pounds), stems removed
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 quart low-sodium chicken broth
cup fresh orange juice
teaspoon grated orange zest
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
Salt and freshly ground pepper
6 sea scallops

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425. Put the peppers on a cookie sheet, stemmed side down, and bake for 45 minutes, or until the skins are black. When cool enough to handle, remove and discard the skins, cores and seeds. Finely dice 2 of the peppers.

In large saucepan, heat 2 Tbsp of the olive oil. Add the garlic, onion, cumin and crushed red pepper and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, about 10 minutes. Add the whole roasted peppers and the chicken broth and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the orange juice, orange zest and cilantro.

In a blender, puree the soup in batches. Return the soup to the saucepan and season with salt and pepper; keep hot.

In a medium skillet, heat the remaining 1 Tbsp of olive oil until shimmering. Season scallops with salt and pepper and add to the skillet. Cook over high heat until richly browned on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Turn the scallops and cook on the second side for 1 minute. Ladle the soup into bowls, garnish with the scallops and diced peppers and serve.
