  1. To prepare croutons, preheat oven to 375F. Spread bread cubes on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake until toasted, about 10 minutes. In a large bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. To prepare soup, heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high. Add onion, carrot, celery and garlic. Saute 10 minutes. Add tomatoes and red peppers and crush with a fork. Add orange rind and juice, sugar, chile flakes, wine, chicken stock, thyme, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, 30 minutes. Uncover and simmer over medium heat until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Add scallops and shrimp and cook 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in chopped basil.
  3. Just before serving, pour oil mixture over croutons and toss well. Divide croutons among 10 serving bowls. Top with stew.
