Thanks @SGH! I normally use a CI grid for searing steaks but figured I'd use the griddle since I was going to use it to sear the scallops anyway. It worked well but I can't say I thought it came out any better than on a CI grid. Don't get the pretty cross marks like on the CI grid but that isn't that important to me. I think I need to do a side by side taste test with my favorite cut, ribeye, and see which method I like better.
