6 sea scallops

Dash of salt

Dash of pepper

1 tbsp butter, melted

1 tbsp lemon juice

1 tbsp chopped shallot

1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp)

Heat the oven to 425℉. Coat a small oven-proof pan with cooking spray. Pat scallops dry and arrange in a single layer in the pan. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Whisk butter, lemon juice, shallot and garlic in a small bowl and pour evenly over scallops.

In the same bowl, mix breadcrumbs and Parmesan. Sprinkle over the top of the scallops.

Bake until the scallops are opaque and the topping is golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

Serve hot.

Hack: Scallops can be purchased individually from the seafood counter at most grocery stores. Alternately, they can be purchased frozen in larger portions if you wish to keep some on hand. Thaw needed amounts before cooking. 


Seafood can be thawed overnight in the refrigerator. It can be thawed more quickly by placing it in a sealed bag and submerging in a bath of cold water for about an hour.

  1. Of course, I came back to your website for more information on new recipes that I can make while I stay home with my roommates and I am never disappointed. Thank you so much for this recipe, I appreciate it a lot and I love coming to your site on a regular basis and finding new foods that I can make now that I live with roommates

  2. Hi, Cynthia. It is a very clear and understandable recipe. I think I’ll follow your recipe in my spare time to cook this dish. I like cooking. I also heard that the situation forces many people to stay at home; many have been forced to become cooks. I don’t know it is good or bad news.

    1. In my opinion, the experience we’ve had these last few months has forced people to stretch their limits, try new things and develop new talents.  Was it worth it?  Only time will tell.
