  1. Mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley, garlic salt, and black pepper together in a bowl.
  2. Pour olive oil into a shallow bowl.
  3. Rinse scallops under cold water, then dip into the olive oil.
  4. Press scallops into bread crumb mixture. Gently toss between your hands so any bread crumbs that haven't stuck can fall away. Place the breaded scallops onto a plate while breading the rest.
  5. Place the scallops in the refrigerator to allow the breading to set, 20 to 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  7. Brush the scallops lightly with more olive oil.
  8. Grill on the preheated grill until golden brown on both sides, about 5 minutes.

I am going to try this dish tonight, but w/3 changes: i'll use tilapia filets AND a grill pan on my stovetop, then i will use garlic and salt separately. One thing that is missing in the directions as they are written: always pat dry the scallops before you either dip them in oil or begin to sear them. The water on the fish will interfere w/the cooking!

This was great! But, I had a problem with getting the panko (not breadcrumbs) and the Parmesan Cheese to stick once on the grill. The grill was cleaned and oiled. Any ideas? Thanks

I did the recipe as written, however I placed the scallops in a shallow pan sprayed w/cooking spray and cooked them on the grill that way, turning them over once with a spatula. They were delicious even though they were not cooked directly on the grill grate itself. And they were not mushy as another reviewer had stated. Very delicious and very easy !

Despite the beautiful golden color, the breading was soggy and mushy. Yuck! The flavor was good, but I'm not sure I would attempt this one again. If I did, I would try using butter instead of olive oil to see if that would yield a crispier coating.

I thought this was wonderful!!! I made it exactly as described, no changes, and it was delicious. Scallops on skewers were a little tricky, but I even got the "grill marks" on the scallops. Will definitely be making this again. Thank you for such a great recipe!
