      I enjoyed these scallops. I did use less blackening seasoning, but even so found the flavor to overwhelm the delicate flavor of the scallops. But overall, it is a quick and easy way to do scallops.

      Sorry, but I have to rate this one low. I followed the directions as is with no adjustments and it did not turn out at all. The 1/2 cup of spices was way too much for my taste. Very overpowering. Now, on nice note, I gave this recipe to a co-worker who tried with fewer spices and he said it was good.

      I am only going to leave a comment on this wonderful recipe. It did not work out for me. I think it has to do with the type of grill that we have. While the pan was very hot, it cooled down rapidly and I had to finish cooking them on the stove top. This is really a great idea--blackening in the wide open spaces in place of the confines of the house. I so hoped it would work. Thanks for sharing this technique.
