There is absolutely NO reason to parboil the green peppers first. 15 minutes on the grill is more than enough time for them to cook. The only purpose parboiling would serve would be to turn them into mush. In fact, 15 minutes seems an overly long cooking time for tender scallops, unless you want to chew on rubber balls.
