"This recipe comes from "The Keeper's House" which was formerly a lighthouse keeper's dwelling located on the west side of the Isle of Haute, Maine which is a small remote island off the states coast. The Keeper's House is now run as an inn and is well known for its dining room and food. They have been featured in food magazines and in newspapers. This recipe is typical Maine NewEngland fare that I love as much as I love the state of Maine. If you've never visited, please do and make sure you visit the coast (especially the DownEast/Acadia region), it's lovely. Source: Recipes from a very small Island"

I made a late dinner and surprised our friends when they stopped over. Their eyes popped out of their heads when they saw scallops! They were amazing and we loved every morsel. My friends went home with the recipe and a smile.

Delicious! Reminds me of the way I do halibut. Loved the garlicky and cheesy bread crumbs, and of course - BUTTER. Wonderful, easy to put together dish - and yet company worthy. I made this with large scallops in a gratin dish. So good! Thanks for sharing - this recipe is a keeper!

Yum was this good. Unfortunately we got visitors just before we were getting ready to eat. It sat in a cold oven for awhile, but it still tasted great. Beautiful flavors, I'm really happy that I tried this recipe, It allowed the scallops to shine. So happy that I used the scallops that my husband fished in the early spring. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe, that we will enjoy often. Happily made for Seaside Brassiere tag game.
