Dinah's Baked Scallops Recipe
This is my favorite way to prepare scallops. They're so flavorful they don't really need much more than a little butter and lemon. I like to serve them with a nice rice pilaf and vegetable.
Delicious baked scallops with butter and garlic. Bay scallops are the little ones and they tend to be sweeter tasting than sea scallops.
My husband thinks these scallops are better than any we have found in any restaurant.
I have made this several times and love it. I am glad I read the reviews from others who had tried it. I did cut the butter down to 1/4 cup, added a splash of sherry, a couple dashes of hot sauce. I also added some old bay seasoning with the cracker crumbs when breading the scallops. I put the cracker crumbs, old bay, and garlic power in a plastic bag. Add the scallops and shake to coat then press any remaining loose crumbs into the scallops. If you spoon the liquid over the scallops you won't wash the crumb mixture off them. Baked as suggested but the last 2 minutes remove and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and broil the last 2 minutes. Will be making this one as often as possible.
Large sea scallops are combined with garlic, shallots, butter, and bread crumbs then baked to perfection. Being from Maine, we love our seafood, and this is one of the greats!
Perfect. For all the people who are boo-hooing about the butter, that's exactly how much they put in at a restaurant. That's why things taste so good there. You can put half on top, and serve the rest on the side. Definitely add some cayenne or a little hot sauce to the crumbs. Scallops should be seasoned with salt and pepper before rolling in crumbs. In fact, it's a lot easier to put the scallops (naked) in a baking dish, and put the crumb topping over. Also, a minute under the broiler makes it look nicer.
Lightly-cooked and tender sea scallops, served in the simplest, quickest sauce of lemon juice, butter, parsley, and fresh basil, are served over angel hair pasta for an elegant but easy dish. Add cream or Parmesan cheese if you like.
Scallops are simmered in butter with asparagus and mushrooms then served with seashell pasta in a rich cream sauce.
Scallops sauteed in butter and garlic will melt in your mouth. Lemon juice gives it a nice kick.
