Scallops baked with lemon and butter, topped with a mixture of green onions, thyme, bread crumbs and Parmesan and then browned under the broiler. A delicious combination of sweet scallops enhanced with lemon juice and a savory crumb topping. The recipe is missing a step as to when to add the green onions, but it seemed logical to use them to top the baked scallops before adding the crumb mixture. The next time, I won't soak the scallops in milk, I think they lost a bit a flavor as a result. Thanks Bergy, this goes to the top of my list for scallop recipes.

This was delicious! I did not soak in the milk, per the previous members comments it didn't seem necessary. I used panko bread crumbs...I did have to bake a little longer, but not much. I served with Vegetable Orzo. Mmmm!

WEll, i'm eating these as we speak and they are great. I love the flavor and so do my kids. I left out the thyme though. Thanks
