Baked Maine Scallops

Baked Maine Scallops created by AcadiaTwo

I remember the day that my husband, who used to do some diving, went to the coast and proceeded to dive for scallops. He brought them home and I fixed them. Delicious!! One minute they were in the ocean and one and one-half hours later they were on the table. Can't get much fresher than that.

    My DH says this is a winner! I made last night and followed the recipe except cut back on the butter to 5 Tblsp. instead of the full 1/2 cup. And I also used Panko crumbs, garlic and a splash of white wine as others suggested. I put them under the broiler the last 3 minutes so they came out nicely browned. Also served with rice and the sauce added good flavor to the rice. Thanks Mimi for posting, this is a definite keeper!

    Phenomenal.... I've tried many scallop recipes, and this one hands down is the best. My husband is fussy, but he loved these. Thanks for a wonderful recipe. I'll make this one for the family for many years!!

    Fantastic scallops! I used panko instead of breadcrumbs and loved the results. I used the optional garlic. IMO, garlic is a "must" on seafood! Thanx for posting this easy and yummy scallop recipe. I'll make these again.
