Baked Scallops

Baked Scallops created by Baby Kato

This is another recipe that I clipped from the newspaper in 1984, which was attributed to then New York State Assemblyman George J. Hochbrueckner, who later was elected to Congress. I made this numerous times, serving it over rice, and always enjoyed the mild flavors. It is quick and delicious!

    Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe Jackie. I love that the scallops were the star of the dish. It was quick and easy to make with wonderful results. We really enjoyed the scallops prepared this way. Tender, juicy and flavorful. Made for CQ3 - New York

    Good and simple to make. I thought it could have used something to kick it up a notch (maybe some tabascio), but good as it is. Thanks for sharing!
