I made a few alterations to make the recipe relatively fat-free, and a little hotter. It was fantastic!! Egg Beaters instead of the egg and water, Garlic Fat Free Wegmans bread crumbs, lemon juice, jarred minced garlic and I Can't believe its not Butter" Spray. My husband raved! Said it was "pretty rich". If he'd only known how much I cheated on the recipe he said sounded awesome. Thank you, for such a great basis for many dishes to come!

5 star all the way I dashed 3 times with the cayenne and instead of using the whole egg I used just the white with the water. I cut the butter back to2 tbsp ( I would have loved it with 4 tbsp I'm sure but I try to cut a bit here and a bit there)Easy tasty recipe that we will enjoy again Thanks Barbara

This is one of the easiest recipes I've ever made, and it tastes fabulous! I added lemon sprinkled over the scallops after the melted butter before I baked them. This recipe is a definite "keeper".
