Reviews for Broiled Scallops
"I've been looking for a good scallop recipe for awhile now--I finally found one! I used bay scallops, since that was all I could find. Also, since I too feared the breadcrumbs would get soggy, I reduced the sauce with fresh lemon juice & drizzled over the finished dish."
"These were moist and delicious. I changed it using dried herbs which I had in the house. Also didn't use any onions. Put some grated Parmesan cheese on top. Loved it!"
"A little bland, could use more spices."
"My husband and I both really liked this! Yummy!"
"I used scallop pieces since they were on sale. Since I was worried that the bread crumbs would get soggy, I put just the scallops into a 9" pie plate and topped with the bread crumbs. I then added a little bit of lemon juice and reduced the sauce while the scallops broiled, and then we each spooned on the sauce as desired. Yum."
