Cook pasta as directed on package. Drain well
Meanwhile, toss scallops with cumin, paprika and sea salt. Let stand 10 minutes. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in large skillet on high heat. Add 1/2 of the scallops; cook 1 minute per side or until golden brown. Remove from skillet; keep warm. Repeat with remaining scallops, adding remaining 1 tablespoon oil if needed. Return all scallops to skillet. Add tequila; cook on medium-high heat 4 minutes or until tequila has evaporated. Remove scallops from skillet. Keep warm
Stir stock into skillet. Cook on medium-high 4 to 5 minutes or until reduced by half. Add butter, lime peel and red pepper; stir until butter is melted. Return scallops to skillet; cook 1 minute or until heated through
To serve, place fettuccine in serving bowl. Add scallop mixture; toss to coat well. Garnish with avocado and cilantro
I decided to cut back on the cooking time for the scallops which kept them from getting rubbery. I also replaced the cilantro with parsley as a convenience and added shredded parmesan on top though most Italians don't put cheese on seafood pasta dishes. My wife absolutely loved her meal and she's a tough critic!
