Dry sherry can replace the cream sherry, but the dish won't be as sweet. Make sure that your grill rack is clean and well-coated with cooking spray, because scallops are delicate and can stick and tear very easily. For a subtle rosemary flavor, try threading the scallops on large, sturdy rosemary sprigs.
