Baked Scallops

Pin It
Here's another one for the rotation.

My favorite dinners are those that come together in no more than 20 minutes, are reasonably cheap, use basic ingredients, and are, for the most part, healthy. This dish fits all four criteria and has great flavor on top of all that! The only thing I had to buy at the grocery store were scallops, which were on sale for $8. Talk about a bargain. Serve this with some crusty bread and you're in business!
Printable Recipe

  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • Flat leaf Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1 lb. bay scallops
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 tbsp. breadcrumbs
  • 2 tsp. unsalted butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, parsley and scallops. Season with salt and pepper. Stir well to combine. Set aside.

Spray your ramekins with cooking spray. Using a slotted spoon place enough scallops into each ramekin so that they are 3/4 full or equally divided between the four ramekins. Top with 1 tablespoon breadcrumbs per ramekin and a 1/2 teaspoon butter each.

Bake until golden and bubbly, approximately 10-15 minutes.
