If you can find them, sea scallops make either a delicious meal with rice, or a fancy appetiser for a dinner party. They're so flavourful they don't really need much more than a little butter and lemon.
20 buttery round crackers, crushed
black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
500g sea scallops, rinsed and drained
125g butter, melted
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
Preparation:20min › Cook:15min › Ready in:35min
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease a 20cm baking dish.
Combine crushed crackers, black pepper and garlic powder in a small bowl. Press scallops into mixture so that they are evenly coated and place them in the greased baking dish.
In a separate bowl mix together melted butter, wine and lemon juice; drizzle mixture over scallops.
Bake in preheated oven until scallops are lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Garnish with chopped parsley.
