Cheesy Baked Scallops

"This recipe serves 2 but can easily be doubled. The cheese gives this a nice richness. I have made this with both scallop and shrimp also."

    This recipe was delicious! But as Chef #1095387 stated , the directions are not clear. I had already added the garlic to the butter and so forth in the sauce pan so could only saute the onions in the skillet. Your directions also do not indicate how much olive oil to use when sauteing the onion. With a few minor corrections to the directions, this could be a 5-star all the way because the flavor is absolutely wonderful!!!!!

    This is my first time making this. It was awsome. Everyone loved it. It is so simple yet so good. If you can boil water you can make this recipe. Thanks

    This recipe is not very clear. prep lines 2. and 3. make no sense. Do you add the onions and garlic in step 2 or do you saute' them in step 3? There isn't enough to do both. If you follow step 3. it doesn't say what to do with the saute' onions and garlic, maybe you should say saute' scallops, NOT or both, onions and garlic, and delete them from step 2. Step 4. says "sprinkle" with bread crumb mixture, this does not "sprinkle" it is wet due to the butter. My thoughts are, the bottle of white wine was finished before this recipe was posted.

    Fabulous! I used shrimp only because I couldn't find the scallops I bought in my freezer. I used about a pound of shrimp and it fed a family of 2 adults, and a 7 & 9 yr. old. Nothin' left! Will make again. I love how the parmesan crusted on top! Thank you for sharing! LA :-)
