Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add bell pepper and onion; cook and stir 1 minute or until slightly softened. Add cooked black beans and lima beans, corn, lime juice, 1 teaspoon of the oregano, 1/2 teaspoon of the sea salt, and 1/4 teaspoon each of the cumin and pepper; cook 1 minute or until heated through. Spoon succotash into medium bowl. Cover to keep warm
Mix cornmeal and remaining 1/4 teaspoon each oregano, sea salt, cumin and pepper in shallow dish. Pat scallops dry with paper towels. Coat scallops in cornmeal mixture
Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in same nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add scallops; cook 4 minutes or until crust is golden brown and scallops are opaque, turning once. To serve, spoon succotash onto serving plates. Arrange scallops over succotash
