These quick and easy baked sea scallops are topped with panko breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese in a simple lemon-butter sauce.
Scallops are one of my favorite foods, some of my popular scallop recipes are Seared Scallops over Risotto, Blackened Scallops with Horseradish Sauce, and Scallop Tostadas to name a few. I also find them incredibly convenient; they cook in less than 20 minutes, and they go beautifully with vegetables of your choice, pasta or crusty bread.
This simple dish is perfect for the holidays as part of a multi-course meal. They’re also perfect for a weeknight dinner, since they cook so quickly.
