What a GREAT way to serve the smaller Bay scallops!Great flavor and easy to make. I made no changes to the original recipe and thought that it was perfect.This is very similar to shrimp dejonghe with the bread crumbs and garlic. A definate keeper.

I have a 9 year old daughter who is a very picky eater. She could not eat enough of these. The whole family enjoyed this but my daughter is now addicted! Give this a try I don't think you will be disappointed. Thank You for a great recipe!

This is a wonderful recipe that can handle variations easily as long as you focus on the scallops while they're cooking. I soaked fresh bay scallops in milk while I prepared the other ingredients. I didn't have scallions so I finely chopped a small onion. I melted the butter over medium-low heat then sauteed the onions & garlic & spices briefly before adding the scallops. When I added the scallops I turned up the heat to medium and cooked the scallops until they started become translucent. Yummy!
