DIRECTIONS

  • COATING.
  • Combine the coating ingredients on a plate and mix with your fingers.
  • Wash scallops and remove the small, tough side muscle.
  • Pat the scallops dry with paper towels and place in a small bowl. (Be sure the scallops are very dry or it will make the breading soagy).
  • Add the olive oil and mix to coat.
  • Dip the scallops in the coating, turning to cover evenly.
  • Gently press the crumbs onto the scallops.
  • Place the scallops in a single layer on a clean plate.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes to set the crumbs.
  • GARNISH:
  • Finely chop the parsley and lemon zest and mix together. Add the olive oil and lemon juice.
  • Spray a grill tray generously with olive oil.
  • 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.
  • Remove from the grill, place a little of the garnish onto each scallop and serve warm.
