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!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 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.
