prepare the island chimichurri sauce and fresh scallion-garlic-thyme angel 
hair pasta as described below. season scallops lightly on both sides with 
fresh ground black pepper and salt. heat the olive oil in a large saute 
pan over medium heat until hot but not smoking. add the scallops and sear 
on each side for 2-3 minutes until rich golden brown on each side and 
moist, yet cooked through in the center. remove scallops from pan to avoid 
over cooking while plating. mound the hot fresh scallion-garlic-thyme 
angel hair pasta in the center of two warm dinner plates. place the 2 
scallops atop of each portion of pasta and 3 scallops evenly spaced around 
each mound of pasta. top each scallop with 2 tsp of island chimichurri

this dish with fresh steamed asparagus and black bean and corn salsa 
placed between the three scallops that surround the mound of pasta.
