If you’re a fan of the 15 minute meal and a fan of scallops, this super easy recipe from myrecipes.com is one you have to try. Scallops are one of my favorite things, but not something I cook often. Because they’re expensive, they’re also not something I feel great about “experimenting” with, so this recipe was a welcome find for me.


1/2 pound sea scallops
1/3 cup panko crumbs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 small garlic clove, finely minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Place scallops in a lightly greased 1-quart baking dish. Combine breadcrumbs and remaining ingredients and sprinkle over the scallops.

Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes or until scallops are opaque and topping is golden.

A couple of tips: choose scallops of similar size so they are done at the same time; make sure they’re completely thawed and dry before cooking.
