This was so easy to fix, and my husband and I thought the scallops were just great! Every mouthful seemed to get better! And the juices jazzed up our rice. Kid rating: one kid wouldn't eat scallops no matter what you did to them and the other kid liked these just fine. Really, though, the scallop dinner was for the adults anyway.

Pretty good recipe. It was somthing different as far as scallops go. I had to add white wine to cut down on the lemon taste.I will use again in the future.

WONDERFUL! I did add a little something! diped the scallops in breadcrumbs than prepared as directed. Excellant. I served with Baked Zucchinni with Lemon Pepper also on this site. Great way to use up the Lemmon Pepper!

Excellent dish! And totally lowfat with only 3 grams of fat. I used the leftover scallops in a pasta dish with diced tomatoes, olives, chopped spinach and a little olive oil. It was delicious the 2nd time around too!

I thought this was great. My boyfriend was iffy on it, but said it was okay. Dad, who is the "number one" scallop fan of my household, loved it.

This recipe was nice and light. After baking the scallops for a few minutes, I drained them. Then I added the ingredients. As some of the reviewers found it to be too lemony, I used regular salt and pepper instead of lemon pepper and squeezed in a little less lemon juice.

Not enough flavor, cooking time was off also.

this was a quick, easy, and very tasty dish - my husband and I enjoyed it very much. I used frozen scallops, and I found the cooking times to be perfect. I served white rice and caesar salad with the scallops. I will definitely make this again!
