These easy baked scallops have a delightful balance of crunchy, golden-brown topping and tender, sweet scallops. They feel decadent like scallops should, thanks to the tasty lemon-butter sauce. Look for uniform scallops; if they're particularly large, you might need to bake them for more than 10 minutes.

  • Whisk melted butter, lemon juice and shallot in a small bowl; pour over the scallops.

  • In the same bowl, combine panko, Parmesan, parsley and the remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the scallops.

  • Bake until the scallops are opaque and the topping is golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot.

Tips

Tip: We prefer “dry” sea scallops because they aren't treated with STP (sodium tripolyphosphate). The untreated scallops are more flavorful and have a better texture.
