I've eaten broiled sea scallops in restaurants and really enjoy them prepared that way. There is some kind of mild seasoning on them. It looks like paprika but it is more than that. Does anyone have any seasoning recipe that is good on seafood, particularly scallops?

My husband tosses them with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper, then sears them in non-stick skillet, getting them just barely done. He sometimes also sprinkles them with a bit of Cajun seasoning. I serve the scallops with baked potatoes, filled with butter and sour cream, and asparagus spears.
I'm talking about the big diver's scallops here. I often buy bay scallops to use in seafood pasta, gumbos and such.

I didn't know that it was that common to serve scallops medium rare. How does it affect the flavor?

I suppose I'll try it one of these days.

It really depends on the quality of scallops being used. The fresher the scallop, the sweeter the taste. Also, look for scallops that are an off-white color, almost ivory. Scallops that are ultra-white may have been bleached. Day boat scallops are best but are the most expensive.

The scallops look delicious. One of my favorite seafoods. I use sugar on my scallops as well, it carmelizes nicely.
