Baked Scallops

Recipe by  

"Delicious baked scallops with butter and garlic. Bay scallops are the little ones and they tend to be sweeter tasting than sea scallops."

Much praise! After reading the reviews, I was nervous that I might mess this recipe up some how but even I got it right! I nixed the garlic powder and onion powder and used panko for the breadcrumbs. And even though some reviewers mentioned that their dish turned out soggy, I added extra butter anyway. Of course, the one day that I needed fresh scallops, our seafood market here at the beach was out! But frozen worked out just fine. Just let the bag thaw out in a bowl of cold water for about 30 minutes and then dry them between paper towels. The scallops turned out amazing. I am still getting compliments from my house! Thanks!

This is delicious. Unfortunately my husband didn't like this. Not because of the recipe but he doesn't like scallops. I thought this dish was as good as any restaurant. I used low fat marg. and left out the parsely and parmesan as I didn't have them.

These were delicious. I made sure they were very dry after I rinsed them. I combined the bread crumbs and fresh grated parmesan cheese, used old bay seasoning in place of the spices. I dipped them quickly in the butter then dredged them in the bread crumb mixture. The only thing I will try differently the next time is broilng them the last few minutes to make the topping a little crunchier. I served this with Daddy's fried corn as another reviewer had suggested. Great dinner. Too bad I didn't have anyone to share it with! (b/f doesn't like scallops so I made it for myself when he was out of town).

This is one of the best scallop recipes we've tried. We used a parmesan that wasn't as plain as usual and it added a little more flavor to the baked on crust. Also, if you don't let the scallops touch the sides of the baking dish, they tend not to get "chewy". If you're heating this up the next day be sure to put it back in the oven and not the microwave. This is a keeper!

I made this for an appetizer. I used el-cheapo "scallop Medallions" which comes frozen from Sam's Club. They resemble the larger Sea Scallops and obviously are not the same quality as true fresh Sea scallops, however, with this recipe, they tasted like the real thing. To get a more consistent looking scallop, instead of sprinkling the mixture over them, I recommend you first "roll" them in the melted butter and then "roll" them in the mixture in a separate bowl. Then place them in the dish for baking.

*****DELICIOUS***** I have made this recipe many times and it's always delicious! I usually add 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of medium to large shrimp along with the scallops and then double the bread crumb mixture. Leftovers are great too! If there are any! Thanks!

This was great, it reminded me of an Italian dish I used to eat back in Rhode Island. I would only suggest sauting the garlic with the butter rather than adding to the breadcrumbs (it clumps up). Thanks for the great recipe.

AWESOME! I made this EXACTLY as the recipe suggests, it definitely WAS NOT soggy, it was DELICIOUS! I melted my butter in the casserole dish in the oven, with the garlic in at the same time-this took about 3 minutes. I then took the pan out of the oven, and followed the recipe. Outstanding flavour, and only took about 7 minutes to throw together! With a bit of rice and salad, this is a real winner.
