Test Kitchen Tips:
•To roast the bell pepper and the cherry tomatoes, preheat broiler. Halve and core the pepper. Remove the top, ribs and seeds. Place the pepper halves on a baking sheet, cut-side down. Add cherry tomatoes. Broil 5 to 7 minutes or until tomatoes are slightly charred and the skin of the pepper has blistered and blackened over the entire surface. Transfer pepper to a paper bag. Close bag. Let stand 15 minutes or until peppers are cool enough to handle. Peel off blackened skin. Use roasted cherry tomatoes without peeling
• Pat scallops dry with paper towels before cooking. This will ensure that they brown nicely instead of steaming in the skillet.
