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!

Great simple recipe! I used some baked 'high fiber' wheat thins instead of melba and it was wonderful. Also used bay scallops so my cooking time was signifcantly less (6 1/2 minutes). On the broiler pan I put some brocoli that I had coated in veg oil, salt and pepper and it cooked right along w/ the scallops. I mixed eveything in a bowl instead of a plastic bag. Served on top of pasta. Yum and easy - thanks!

Very quick and easy to make, and a good basic starting point. We found this a little bland, but it would be easy to jazz it up with some more herbs, red pepper flakes or something like cayenne pepper. I don't have a broiler pan, so I did these on a cookie sheet. Unfortunately, that made the bottoms come out a little soggy. Next time I will put a rack on top of the cookie sheet and do them that way to keep 'em crispy. Also, don't put any extra breading on the sheet with your scallops, it'll burn! The breaded scallops turned golden, but any extra on my sheet turned black as can be. Thanks, I'll give these another try with a little more spice. Super easy!

My DH and I are big seafood fans and always looking to change it up a bit. Well, this did the job. Crusty, tender, flavorful. This is a keeper!

I usually try the recipe as written the first time, then "tweak" it to my tastes as needed. I looked; however, and I was unable to find onion "flavoured" (lol! A Yank, here!) Melba Toast. I used crushed up Ritz crackers with some onion powder. This is a hit!

These were excellent. Scallops fresh from the coast, and this was an easy way to prepare them. I subbed panko for the melba toast, and I did use additional butter and breadcrumbs, and they were done in about 8 minutes. Served with risotto, roasted broccoli, and a spinach salad. Thanks for sharing!

So easy and very tasty. I used Bay Scallops and served as a side dish to gnocchi. Wonderful, thank you very much!
