In a medium saucepan heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat.
Add the onion and cook, stirring, until lightly caramelized, about 12 minutes.
Add the paprika, tomato paste, and garlic and cook, stirring for another 2 minutes.
Add the wine and cook, stirring, until almost all evaporated, 8 - 10 minutes.
Stir in the chickpeas, tomatoes, and 1/2 cup water and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.
Transfer the chickpeas to a bowl, and taste...add more salt, if needed.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil over high heat until the skillet begins to smoke.
Season the scallops with salt and pepper, and then add to the skillet and cook, turning once, until just cooked through, about 3 minutes.
Transfer the scallops to a plate and serve alongside the stewed tomatoes and chickpeas (or, ladle into bowls, and place 3 - 4 scallops on top).
Garnish with arugula.
Best when served with bread.
