Before starting, preheat the oven to 425˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Add 6 cups water and 1 tsp salt to a medium pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.Meanwhile, trim, snap peas.Zest, then juice half the lemon. Cut remaining lemon into wedges. Thinly slice chives. Rinse capers, then pat dry with paper towels. Rinse, then pat scallops dry with paper towels, pressing well to absorb as much moisture as possible. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook orzo

Add orzo to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min.Reserve 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) pasta water, then drain and return orzo to the same pot, off heat.

Roast  veggies

Meanwhile, add snap peas, tomatoes, 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) oil and half the garlic puree to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Roast in the middle of the oven until veggies are tender-crisp, 10-12 min.

Sear scallops

When orzo is almost done, heat a large non-stick pan over high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) oil, then scallops. Pan-fry until golden-brown, 2 min per side. Transfer scallops to a plate. (NOTE: Scallops will finish cooking in step 5.)

Baste scallops

Reheat the same pan over medium. Add 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) butter, 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) lemon juice, 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) water, 1 tsp (2 tsp) lemon zest, capers and remaining garlic puree. Stir until fragrant, 1 min.Add scallops back into the pan. Using a spoon, baste scallops with lemon-caper butter sauce, flipping scallops occasionally, until cooked through, 2-3 min.**

Finish orzo and serve

Add reserved pasta water, broth concentrate, Parmesan, half the chives and 1/2 tbsp (1 tbsp) butter to orzo. Season with pepper, then stir to combine.Divide orzo, roasted veggies and scallops between plates. Spoon lemon-caper butter sauce from the pan over scallops, then sprinkle with remaining chives.Squeeze a lemon wedge over top, if desired.
