Method
  1. For the Pistou Sauce (makes 1 cup):
  2. The pistou can be made a day ahead and kept covered in the refrigerator. Bring to room temperature and stir before using. Extra sauce can be used tossed with pasta or spread on toasted croutons or sandwiches. Store in an airtight container, refrigerated, for 1 week or frozen up to one month
  3. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Plunge the basil into the boiling water and blanch for 2 minutes. Drain the leaves and run under cold water to stop the cooking process Drain and squeeze the leaves of excess water
  4. Put all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade attachment. Process until smooth, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl, press a piece of plastic wrap against the surface, and set aside
  5. For the Bean Fricassee:
  6. Fill a medium bowl halfway with an ice-water bath and set aside. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the Romano and wax beans and cook for 5 minutes. Add the haricot verts and cook until the beans are tender, 5 to 7 minutes Transfer the beans to a fine-mesh sieve and place in the ice-water bath to cool. Drain and set aside
  7. Warm the olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the pearl onions, and cook, while stirring, until the onions are translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the chicken stock and reduce by half. Add the beans, garlic, and butter and cook until the beans are lightly glazed. Add the tomato, basil, parsley, lemon, olives, and almonds and cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper and keep warm
  8. For the Roasted Sea Scallops:
  9. Place the rice flakes on a small plate and set aside. In a small bowl, mix together the eggs, flour and a pinch each of salt and pepper Season the scallops with salt and pepper. Dip one side of each scallop into the egg mixture and then into the rice flakes
  10. Warm the olive oil in a medium nonstick sauté pan over medium heat. Add the scallops, crust side down, and cook for 2 minutes. Add the butter and continue to cook until golden brown, about 2 more minutes, being careful not to burn the rice flakes. Turn the scallops over and cook for another 2 minutes
  11. To Serve:
  12. In a small saucepan, combine the chicken stock and pistou over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the fricassée between four shallow soup bowls Place the scallops on top and drizzle the pistou sauce around the vegetables
