Valentine’s Day Inspired Seared Scallops

  • 1 lb bag Panamei Scallops
  • 1/4 cup Japanese bread crumbs (or regular bread crumbs)
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp red hot pepper flakes
  • 1 tbsp chopped capers
  • 1 tbsp toasted pine nuts, chopped
  • 1 large or 2 small cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 cup olive oil

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Spray or coat a glass baking dish with butter or olive oil. Put 1 pound of sea scallops in the dish. Season with salt and pepper. Top with breadcrumb mixture.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until the scallops have turned from translucent to white in color. Turn oven to broil for 3-5 minutes until the bread crumbs look crunchy.

Serve with lemon wedges.
