Add more water as necessary to achieve desired consistency; the purée should not be too thin. Transfer to a bowl and keep warm.

Add half of the scallops, taking care not to overcrowd in the pan. Cook, turning once, until brown on both sides and just cooked through, about 4 minutes. Transfer to plate and keep warm. Repeat with remaining scallops.
