What a great idea! For us the panko crust got burned on top but the scallops were still not cooked inside. This is because we had probably the world's most enormous scallops and I think the time would be fine for normal sized ones. The wasabi/sesame flavor of the mayo is very tasty on its own but doesn't come through too much after cooking - we used it as a dipping sauce too which worked well. Even though we oiled the pan, the crust on the bottom completely came off and left the bare scallop. The crust on the top is very tasty but slips off too, leaving kind of a plain bare scallop; If we did this again we'd marinate the scallops so they are flavorful on their own and only put the panko on the top. Made for the Humble Soybean game.
