I haven't been feeling well today, so asked hubby to cook dinner. We were going to make Scallops fra Diavolo, but didn't have brandy/cognac or diced tomatoes, so looked for something else. This came up, and we had all the ingredients.
We weren't big fans of this; I said there was way too much bread crumb. He then told me that the original recipe called for 1.5lb of scallops, and that he had 1lb but didn't cut the other ingredients. So it's worth another try for sure.
It was definitely an easy recipe; it only took him about 15 minutes to put together. If you're looking for a fast, easy meal with ingredients you likely have on hand, it's worth a try, but just make sure you scale back on the other ingredients if you don't have the right amount of scallops.
I wonder how this would be with shrimp......
Baked Scallops from allrecipes
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 pounds bay scallops, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Pour melted butter into a 2 quart oval casserole dish. Distribute butter and scallops evenly inside the dish.
Combine the bread crumbs, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, parsley, minced garlic and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle this mixture over the scallops.
Bake in pre-heated oven until scallops are firm, about 20 minutes.
