Recipe Share Sunday: 'Awesome Baked Sea Scallops'

This recipe is courtesy the Husband... well, actually it's courtesy if you want to get all technical on me, but let's let him have his shining moment in the sun, mmmkay? Knew you guys would understand...

We had these on Friday night, and I hadn't thought to evidence it until I was about to take my first bite, so the pics aren't overly 'artsy' (read: appetizing)... just TRUST that they were delicious...

16 sea scallops, rinsed and drained
5 tablespoons butter, melted
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 shallots, chopped
3 pinches ground nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup bread crumbs
4 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup chopped parsley
lemon wedges for garnish (optional)

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).  
  • Place scallops, melted butter, garlic, and shallots in a bowl. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Stir gently to combine. Transfer to a casserole dish.
  • In a separate bowl, combine bread crumbs and olive oil. Sprinkle on top of scallops.  
  • Bake in preheated oven until crumbs are brown and scallops are done, about 11 to 14 minutes. Top with parsley, and serve with lemon wedges on the side.
