  • Cook's Tip
  • Bay scallops can be substituted for sea scallops. If using smaller bay scallops, lower the oven temperature to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), and bake 5 to 7 minutes.

Hubby loved these and requested they go in the keeper file. The recipe definately calls for too much wine though. I seasoned the scallops with some garlic salt and pepper and added some Parmesan cheese to the topping mixture. Thanks for the recipe!

I truly enjoy scallops but I didn't love this recipe. I used Ritz crackers - I didn't have any pecans so I substituted walnuts which I don't think was a good idea. I also added parmesan cheese to the topping as one reviewer suggested. When I took it out of the oven and tasted it, it was very bland. I added alot of granulated garlic and about a tablespoon of butter which helped. It was just ok...wish I could have left 5 stars.

these were phenomenal!!! My husband loved them! I took suggestions reduce the wine and lemon juice and added more pecans and breadcrumbs.

I loved this recipe. It was fast and delicious. The only change I made was adding chopped fresh basil as a sub for the parsley (I had a bumper crop of basil this year). I served this with rice and roasted broccoli.

I would increase the pecans, decrease the wine and broil for the last 1-2 minutes. Easy and good though!

I enjoyed the recipe very much. I didn't have everything on hand so changed it a bit. Instead of crackers I used 1/2 panko crumbs and 1/2 italian bread crumbs. I did not have lemon juice so I sprinkled lemon pepper. I put some maple syrup in with the melted better for touch of sweet. Very good receipe to play around with.

Great and simple recipe for a busy work night! These turned out great and pretty good for you. I used wheat crackers instead. I would cut down on the amount of wine used as I had to poor some out of the baking pan. Tasted great!

This was a great dish, however I used several substitutions due to not having some of the ingredients the recipe called for. I first changed the servings to 2. I didn't have white wine, so instead I used diluted apple cider vinegar (50 vin/50 h2o). I used half pecans/half hazelnuts, half wheat thin crumbs/half plain bread crumbs. I also mixed in 1 TS of honey with the melted butter before drizzling it on top. The topping turned out to be sweet, but it was not overpowering. Sweet is not something I usually think of when it comes to seafood, but this was mmMM delicious!
