I wasn't real impressed with this rub. It didn't turn out nearly as tangy as I had expected and seemed to be missing something. I think it's important to carefully choose your side to go with this dish, something with lots of flavor as these scallops can't carry a meal on their own.

Fantastic! I actually followed the recipe and I'm glad I did. I chose to use Ancho Chili Powder I buy my spice blends whole and grind them just minutes before use. 2 skewers fit across the hibachi perfectly. (Never use a larger grill than necessary.) I served it with Sackville Girl's Lemon/Thyme Couscous #92312 and a loose leaf lettuce salad dressed with Key lime juice. Valhalla couldn't be better! Thanx for posting this great recipe. Pierre
