Seasoned Sea Scallops

Yum
Who doesn't enjoy fresh baby scallops, well not all people but I have always been a big fan of any type of seafood, since a very young age. My family was never huge fans of having sweets to finish a meal, we would all enjoy some kind of seafood dish to end your entree on all special occasions. This is not to say there where not sweets for guests but the main core of the family always pined for what seafood my mom or dad had prepared this time, sometimes their was more then one.

Sea scallops can be made in a variety of ways, from on a skillet to baked or broiled, some people even try to poach scallops. I love to bake any type of creature from the water, not only does it leave your home smelling the same but it is always much healthier option for us. You will require a baking pan covered with parchment paper and be sure to use the spices that tickle your taste buds if you don't enjoy any of the ones below. Seasoned bread crumbs add an extra dose of flavour to your dish.

Never thought to bake scallops. I have always just panfried them. Will have to give this recipe a whirl - they look delicious.
