Baked Scallops Ingredients
2 pounds scallops
*Cracker Crumb Ingredients
8 ounces Ritz crackers
6 ounces milk lunch crackers
1 teaspoon garlic powder
¼ cup mayonnaise
1½ sticks butter, melted
How to Make Cracker Crumbs
Crush the crackers, until chunky, by pulverizing them in a plastic bag with a rolling pin or pulsing them in a blender or food processor. Place crushed crackers in a large bowl. Mix in the garlic powder. Add the mayonnaise and mix until there are no more lumps. Add the melted butter and mix thoroughly. Place in an airtight container. Yields about 4 servings.
How to Make Baked Scallops
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Place the scallops in a casserole dish and sprinkle with the Cracker Crumb Coating, enough to heavily coat them. Spread the coated scallops evenly in a baking pan. Bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, depending on the size of scallops. Scallops will be firm when fully cooked. Serves 4.
Recipe Notes: Serve with lemon and/or hot sauce. Use bay or sea scallops, as you prefer. Bay scallops are smaller and sweeter than sea scallops. If you use sea scallops, you may want to dice them.
