  1. Place a cast iron skillet on the grill. Preheat the grill, setting the burners to high.
  2. On a large plate, combine the paprika, garlic powder, sugar, celery salt, oregano and cayenne pepper.
  3. In a bowl, toss the scallops with the melted butter. Coat the scallops with the spice mixture.
  4. In the hot skillet, blacken the scallops for about 1 minute on each side, or until the desired doneness.


It’s always best to cook Louisiana-style blackened fish outdoors to avoid filling the house with smoke.
