    JackieOhNo!'s Note:

    This has everything going for it - it's low-calorie, it's fast, and it's delicious. The scallops need to marinate about 30 minutes, which gives you time to rustle up a nice rice pilaf and salad to accompany it. Then throw on the grill and dinner is served!

      Followed this exactly, but the scallops seemed very bland to us. Disappointed. I'm sure with some tweaking it may be better

      Easy and very tasty -- great flavor that we both enjoyed. I marinated the scallops in a baggie and skipped the skewers (grilled on foil). Served with roasted yellow and zucchini squash.

      Because my husband has a bad reaction to cumin, I substituted paprika; another sweet spice. It was wonderful. Sometime when he is out of town, I'm going to make it with cumin! Oh, and adding whole mushrooms to the skewers is good, too!
