Simple Herbed Scallops Recipe

Living in Kansas, fresh seafood can be hard to come by. Luckily, frozen scallops aren't. This dish offers an "East Coast" taste to those of us in the Midwest.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:2 servings


  • 1/2 to 3/4 pound sea scallops
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley or 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh chives or 1/2 teaspoon dried chives
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced fresh tarragon or 1/8 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dry bread crumbs


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place scallops in a greased 1-qt. baking dish. Mix 2 tablespoons melted butter, lemon juice, herbs, garlic salt and pepper; drizzle over scallops.
  • 2. Mix bread crumbs with remaining melted butter; sprinkle over top. Bake, uncovered, until scallops are firm and opaque, 20-25 minutes. Yield: 2 servings.
