Panko Baked Scallops for two

I love the french recipe Coques St. Jacques which I bake and serve in beautiful scallop shells. The traditional recipe has many steps and requires time to make. Loving Scallops cooked in a casserole but not always have the time to prepare I created this easy baked scallops for a delicious weekday meal.  Prepare the casserole in the morning to bake at night having a wonderful fresh dinner in 20 minutes.

Ingredients

1/2 lb sea scallops

1/2 lemon

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 cloves minced garlic

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

1/2 cup Italian Panko bread crumbs, I used Roland

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

2 tablespoon butter

Preheat over to 375F. Place scallops in a bowl. Squeeze lemon over scallops. Add olive oil, garlic, pepper, and salt tossing to combine. Place scallops in ovenproof baking dish. Combine bread crumbs and cheese. Place bread crumbs on top of scallops. Dot butter over bread crumbs. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until topping is brown. Serve over pasta tossed with butter and cheese or rice.

Enjoy!
