Mix scallions, garlic, paprika, salt, and pepper together.
In a saute pan, melt butter. When butter is melted, add saute scallion mixture.
In a separate bowl, coat the scallops with bread crumbs. Add the coated scallops to the saute mixture. Stir and cook for about 2 to 4 minutes, until golden brown.
