Yummy way to help zest fresh scallops! Yummy way to help zest fresh scallops!
Number of Servings: 4


    1 1/2 lbs fresh sea scallops
    4 tbsps margarine spread, melted
    1/2 cup dried seasoned bread crumbs
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp paprika
    1 tsp dried parsley
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Pour melted butter into a 2 quart casserole dish. Distribute butter and scallops evenly inside the dish.
(make sure the scallops aren't cold when you do this or it will turn the butter hard again and you'll just have a big old mess!)
Combine dry ingredients in another bowl and sprinkle over scallops.
Bake in preheated oven until scallops are firm, about 20 minutes.

This is the recipe my family has used for quite some time, but there are lots of things you can do and different ingredients you can use to lower the sodium and fat content.
If you use the big sea scallops, its also nice to cut them up into bite size pieces before you do anything else to make sure all the flavor gets into them.

Makes 4 servings.

    Very tasty. I dipped the scallops in the melted margarine first and then dredged them in the bread crumbs. After that I sprinkled the remaining bread crumb mixture over the top. Will definitely be making these again! - 5/30/11

  • This was great, even my husband, a good old meat and potatoes man, could not keep quite about how great it was. I did what several others suggested and dipped the scallops in the butter and then the bread crumbs. After that, you really don't need to pour the rest on top. - 8/30/13

  • Made this for Christmas Eve. Similar to BJRobertson901, I coated the scallop pieces with the breadcrumb mixture, but BEFORE I put them in he butter. Turned out great. Nice tasty dish. - 12/27/11

  • Delicious! I love sea scallops, and this recipe definitely enhances them. Still have no onion powder handy, so skipped that ingredient. This is my second time using this recipe. The first time I used butter, and this time Brummel and Brown sperad as a healthier alternative. Still yummy! - 3/17/11

  • very good. I mixed shrimp and scallops together and baked them in individual scalloped dishes. They were a big hit and easy to make. - 10/29/09
