Baked Alaskan Sea Scallops

Baked Sea Scallops

16 sea scallops (get the dry packed, so much more flavorful)

5 tablespoons butter, melted

5 cloves garlic, minced

2 shallots, chopped

3 pinches ground nutmeg

salt and pepper to taste

1 cup bread crumbs

4 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 cup chopped parsley

lemon wedges for garnish (optional)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place scallops, melted butter, garlic, and shallots in a bowl. Season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Stir gently to combine. Transfer to a casserole dish. In a separate bowl, combine bread crumbs and olive oil. Sprinkle on top of scallops.  Bake in preheated oven until crumbs are brown and scallops are done, about 11 to 14 minutes. Top with parsley, and serve with lemon wedges on the side.
