Wash produce before use
Prep the ingredients
- Pat the seafood dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper and rub all over with the harissa powder. Let stand while you prepare the vegetables.
- Measure half the vegetable broth; save the rest for another use.
- Rinse the chickpeas.
- Trim the ends from the zucchini; cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
- Trim the root end from the frisée and divide the head in half. Coarsely chop the leaves of one half; save the remaining frisée for another use.
- Juice half the lemon; cut the other half into wedges for garnish. [Juice 1 lemon; cut 1 lemon into wedges.]
Cook the chickpeas and zucchini
Add the chickpeas and zucchini and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the chickpeas are heated through, the zucchini is tender, and a little broth remains, 5 to 7 minutes [6 to 8 min]. Remove from the heat and stir in the frisée, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] parsley-pecan pesto (set aside the remaining pesto for serving). Transfer to a large bowl and cover to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.
Prep and cook the seafood
In the same pan used for the vegetables, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the fish, reduce the heat to medium, and cook, turning once, until the fish is cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for sole and 3 to 5 minutes per side for halibut. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.
For the scallops::
In the same pan used for the vegetables, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the scallops and cook without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. Transfer to a plate. Add more oil between batches if needed.
- Measure the vegetable broth.
