"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!" — StylinCook

sea scallops, rinsed and drained
salt and pepper to taste
lemon wedges for garnish
This is the first time I tried this receipe and indeed it was awesome. The only variation I used was freshly ground sea salt/freshly ground pepper blend, and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to taste. In addition, I used flavored breads crumbs as opposed to the plain bread crumbs. I used about a pound of scallops instead of the 16 as recommended in the recipe The dish was prepared and cooked in a 9 x 13 pyrex dish sprayed with a non-stick cooking spray.
This recipe was horrible. Way too much of the bread crumbs. They didn't seem to match with the scallops. The scallops were boring. Will not make this again.
These are better than awesome! Other reviewers noted not to use all of the topping the recipe calls for - I disagree. But instead of putting all of the topping on top of the scallops, I put a little dab on each scallop and scattered the rest of the topping around the scallops, allowing the topping to "soak up" the melted butter/garlic mix that I did not discard, but poured over and around scallops in the casserole dish - this came out crispy and delicious! And easy?? This is the first time I've ever cooked scallops (was always afraid to) and this recipe made me a whiz at it! Will be making this again!!
This recipe is awesome! I made this to the directions for my wife's 40th birthday party. The only problem is the guests wanted more! The only recommondation is you Must use Digby Scallops.
The bread crumb topping MADE this dish. My guests loved this recipe. Raved about it. Served with asparagus, orzo, and another baked Lemon garlic Tilapia dish on this site. They both baked together in the oven side by side, which made it very easy.
This recipe is great AND simple. I placed lightly sauted asparagus and sliced mushrooms in the bottom of an individual serving dish and placed the scallops on top. My husband loved it.
Definitely a keeper! I reduced the serving to one since I mainly just cook for myself. The only change I made was using chopped red onion since I did not have a shallot. If sea scallops were cheaper, I would make this more often!
This recipe is so quick & simple, yet elegant enough to serve to company. I have made it several times now and it has become a favorite of ours! I am so happy that I have found this recipe.
