In a sauce pan, bring the chicken stock up to a boil. Remove from the heat.

Pour into a blender along with the parsley and white wine. Puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Season the scallops with Emeril's Essence. In a saute pan, heat the olive oil. When the oil is hot, saute the scallops for 2 minutes on each side. (The scallops should have a nice golden-brown sear on each side -** the oil must be almost smoking.) Remove from the pan. In a mixing bowl, whisk the herbs and extra-virgin olive oil together. Add the garlic. Toss the pasta with the dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon the coulis in the center of the plate. Mound the pasta salad in the center of the sauce. Arrange the scallops around the salad. Garnish with the cheese, parsley, and edible flowers. This recipe yields 4 servings.
