Baked Scallops

olive oil spray

16 large sea scallops (a pound)

1/4 cup panko crumbs

1 1/2 T grated parmesan

1 T fresh  minced parsley

1/4 tea dried oregano

1/4 tea  K salt, divided

fresh black pepper to taste

juice of 1 lemon divided

2 1/2 T melted butter

1 T white wine (still good without it if none available)

  1. preheat oven to 400 and lightly spray 8 x10 inch oval baking dish or 2 qt gratin dish with olive oil spray
  2. Pat the scallops dry and then spritz them with a little oil, season with 1/8 tea salt
  3. In a small bowl combine the panko, parmesan, parsley, oregano, 1/8 tea salt and black pepper to taste
  4. Arrange the scallops in a single layer in the prepared dish.  Top with the crumb mixture.
  5. Whisk half of the lemon juice with butter and wine together and pour over scallops
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until the scallops are opaque.
  7. Set oven broil high (second rack from top) till topping is golden.  Just 2-3 minutes. (I skipped this step and still delicious)
  8. Squeeze remaining lemon juice and eat immediately
