Sea Scallops Recipe

HI know sea scallops can be rather pricey , even living close to the ocean as we do, but this "stuffing" can be used on any fish like cod, scrod, etc and is really good . Also great for baked stuffed shrimp. This recipe serves 4 .

Sea Scallops Recipe

1 lb sea scallops (cut if they are huge)
1 3/4 - 1 sleeve town house crackers only ( do not substitute)
1 pinch salt
1 pinch black pepper
1 tsp dried parsley ( I use fresh if I have on hand)
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 lemon
6 Tbsp butter melted ( I use real butter - you can substitute but butter is better )
1-2 cups milk for soaking

Soak scallops in milk for at least 1/2 hour . ( this sweetens the scallops and tenderizes them ) Remove scallops from milk. Strain . Lightly pat dry with paper towels. Crush crackers and keep a bit crunchy. Mix crackers with parsley, thyme, basil, paprika, salt and pepper. Place scallops in a casserole dish . Mix a squeeze of lemon with 1/2 the butter . Pour over the scallops and toss. Sprinkle half the cracker crumb mixture over the scallops and toss. Toss remaining crumbs with the butter and a squeeze of lemon. Sprinkle over top of scallops. Bake in 350 degree oven for 20-30 min. until cooked through. Turn oven to broil to make crumbs golden brown on top. Enjoy!
