My sister-in-law makes this often. So she shared it with me.
Make and share this Coquille St. Jacques - France recipe from Food.com.

- Pour over the seafood equally.

wow Nora, really good. I added some crab as well, just because it was there, and this was a yummy treat. Made for Cookathon for Nora's DH. Thanks! BB
Awesome delicious!! I also added some crab to the scallops and shrimp and grated some emmenthaler cheese on top the bread crumbs.
This is a tasty recipe and not too complicated. Next time I'll use more shrimp. This was the best part for me. I made the sauce in the microwave. More easier for me. I did not do the step with breadcrumbs and butter. But instead I used mozzarella cheese. And it was 10 minutes under the grill until the cheese was melted and golden. Thanks Nora Marie for posting. Made for Beverage tag.
