"Spicy, tasty and easy. I like to slip a piece of foil over the scallops for about 5 minutes of the bake time so they don't get too brown. This recipe was originally from allrecipes"

The scallops were cooked perfectly...and so easy. I did have twice as much breading topping as I needed, and since I like it, I poured it all over the top. I shouldn't have. Next time I would cut the topping in half as I think it would be better that way. Love the idea of serving this and baked shrimp for company! UPDATED: I made this again with 2/3 lb scallops (5 large) and 1/2 the bread crumb mixture (reg bread crumbs instead of panko)...YUM!

We love scallops and this is one of the best versions we have had. Easy to make, too.

Wonderful dinner! I used a bag (340g) of scallops for the two of us, and made breadcrumbs from homemade bread. Fast and easy dinner with tons of flavour. Served it over a lemon pasta and a salad. I still have more scallops in the freezer and DH wants this again! UPDATE 7/9/20: This is still one of our favourite scallop recipes! Perfect every time. Thanks for sharing Bergy.
