Herb-crusted scallops served with crispy baked leeks make an easy yet impressive dish to serve to friends. You may have seen “frizzled” or fried leeks on a restaurant menu before, but you might not guess how easy they are to make at home. Here we toss thinly sliced leeks with paprika- and garlic-seasoned flour and bake them until crispy. While the leeks bake you have time to sear the scallops. Serve with: Mashed potatoes and kale sautéed with garlic.

"We haven't tried the scallops yet but the crispy leeks are delicious!!! Whenever we make them they get gobbled up fast. It's a great way to use up all the leeks in our farm share. It's also a great alternative to fried onions. "

Wow, I didn't like this recipe at all. Italian seasoned scallops paired with paprika dusted leeks? The flavors didn't go together at all. I also had problems with my leeks crisping up evenly, but I don't think that would have saved the dish.

Don't ruin your lovely scallops with this recipe!
