Great stuff! I gave all the scallops a healthy spritz of fresh lemon juice before doing anything else with them, I do that with almost all fish or seafood before cooking it, just a little quirk I have. We also used Italian seasoned breadcrumbs instead of the Melba toast. Other than that, the recipe was made as directed, and we thought it was quite scrumptious, even 3 year old La Princessa ate all of hers. Thanks! :)

Since my wife is not fond of scallops, I made this recipe with Shrimp ( large prawns ). They were fantastic!

I am on a low carb diet so instead of using melba toast I mixed 6 large pork rinds with 3 tbsp French's french fried onions. I pulsed them a few times in the food processor and used that as my breading. These scallops were so delicious. I served them over a nice spinach salad. Thank you!
