Breaded Scallops

Well today on my wife's wanted me to cook her some breaded scallops on the old BBQ. Making breaded scallops on the Kamado Joe isn't that hard to make. They are a little time consuming to make but they are very tasty and totally worth it at the end. They are really good to make as appetizer for a little party.

I definitely recommend you to use Grillgrates to cook these due to the fact that it provides you with a non stick semi-indirect cooking surface or use a good quality soap stone griddle like the ones made by "Kamado Joe" or use a Kettle-Q griddle. Fear not if you don't own one of these accessories you can still cook them in a Cast Iron Frying pan on your Joe or indirect.

Well let's get cooking!


·       15 - 20 Large fresh Scallops
·       1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
·       1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
·       1 TBSP Dizzy Pig Raging River
·       1/2 TBSP Dizzy Pig Shakin' The Tree
·       Optional for added heat you can replace Shakin' The Tree with Swamp Venom from Dizzy Pig rubs
·       1/2 TSP Kosher Salt
·       2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil


1. In a shallow bowl mixes the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Raging River, Shakin' the Tree, and Kosher Salt;

2. Wash scallops and Pat dry with Paper towel but ensure they are truly dry;

3. In a separate bowl add the Olive oil and mix in the scallops till the scallops are evenly coated with the Olive oil;

4. Now dip the scallops in the crumb mixtures and gently press the crumbs on the scallops;

5. Place the scallops on a aluminum cookie sheet and cover with a saran wrap and refrigerate 30 to 45 minutes;

6. Pre-heat your Joe to 350 - 375 Degrees Fahrenheit. I highly recommend using Grillgrates or a Griddles to cook these. But if you don't have one you can cook them in a cast iron frying pan or indirect.

7. Cook approximately 3 - 4 minutes each side or until the center is opaque. If you want to use a good thermometer like the Thermapen the internal temp should be between 140 - 150 degrees Fahrenheit.

Garnish Recipe


·       2 TBSP lemon zest
·       2 TSP lemon juice
·       1 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
·       1/2 cup fresh finely chopped parsley


1. Mixed all the garnish ingredients

2.  Sprinkle a little garnish on the freshly cooked breaded scallops and serve warp.

Optional: you can sprinkle a very light coating of Raging River rub on them for added flavor.

Bonne App├ętit! and Happy Grilling!
