Rinse scallops under cold running water; pat dry with paper towels.
Preheat broiler. Brush a shallow glass dish or 4 individual ramekins with some margarine.
In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs, Parmesan, paprika, and pepper. Mix well. Arrange scallops in a single layer in prepared dish. Sprinkle bread crumb mixture evenly over scallops. Drizzle remaining margarine and lemon juice on top.
Broil 6 inches from the heat until scallops are opaque and tops are golden, about 8 minutes. Serve immediately.
