Season the scallops and shrimp with black pepper. Pour the oil into a wok set over high heat. Add the scallops and cook for 3 minutes, constantly tossing. Add the shrimp and cook for another 2 minutes. Remove the scallops and shrimp and place them into a small bowl. Set aside.
Add the broken noodles, noodle seasoning packages, frozen vegetables, garlic powder, ginger, and water to the wok. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5–6 minutes, or until the noodles and vegetables are tender.
Add the sweet and sour sauce and the shrimp and scallops back into the wok. Toss until everything is evenly coated with the sauce. Remove the pan from the heat. Top with scallions and serve immediately.
