  7. Gently press the crumbs onto the scallops.
  8. Place the scallops in a single layer on a clean plate.
  9. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to set the crumbs.
  10. GARNISH:.
  11. Finely chop the parsley and lemon zest and mix together. Add the olive oil and lemon juice.
  12. Spray a grill tray generously with olive oil.
  13. Place the scallops on the grill tray 1-2 inches apart and grill over direct medium heat until just opaque in the center, about 8 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling time. Treat them gently when turning.
  14. Remove from the grill, place a little of the garnish onto each scallop and serve warm.

Wonderful and soo tasty! I made these last night and they were so simple. I did add a little red pepper flakes as well to add a little more heat. Definetly would make again.

This is very good. I always enjoy scallops, and have never prepared them like this on the grill. I had to use a fish basket, instead of a grill tray, and it worked wonderfully. Thanks for posting a great recipe! Made for PRMR tag.
