"A touch of toasted pecans makes this version of baked sea scallops special. This is also a great way to prepare fish fillets, such as haddock."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Arrange scallops in a single layer in a baking dish. Combine wine and lemon juice in a small measuring pitcher. Add salt and pepper to taste, and pour over the scallops.
  3. Combine cracker crumbs, pecans, and parsley in a small bowl. Spoon evenly over the scallops. Drizzle the crumb topping with melted butter.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until topping is golden and scallops are opaque, 10 to 12 minutes.


  • 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.

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

Recipe is very good and easily adaptable to other ingredients. For example other types of nuts rather than pecans and any type of crackes. I used triskets, but watch the salt as they are salty. ...
