Legal Seafood Style Baked Scallops

Legal Seafood Style Baked Scallops created by Jonathan Melendez

Whenever we get back to the Boston area, it's a priority to to have a meal at Legal Seafoods. I recently "re-discovered" this recipe buried in old newspaper clippings. I had tried to recreate it in the past but now know I was missing the most important ingredient - buttermilk. I made it again after posting the recipe so I have edited the original description. It's even better than I remembered, you might want to try just a dash (or more) of cayenne pepper. It's delightful !

    I live in Maine and we have great seafood. We eat seafood 1 -2 times a week....all kinds of seafood. These are the best and easiest oven baked scallops I have ever prepared. My husband gave this 11 on a scale of 1-10. Excellent! Didn’t change a thing. The squeeze of lemon before serving is the finishing touch.

    One of the easiest scallop recipes I've ever tried. It was so delicious and came together quickly. Definitely adding this recipe to my rotation.
