For such a simple dish, these scallops are really delicious. And easy.
The recipe called for the tiny bay scallops but I had bought the large sea scallops so I just doubled the butter ~ not the other ingredients ~ and added broiling time. I served them with wild rice and fresh bread.
1 1/2 lbs bay scallops ~ I used sea scallops
1 tbsp garlic salt
2 tbsps butter, melted ~ I used 4 tbsps butter, melted
2 tbsps lemon juice
Heat broiler ~ mine can heat to hi or low so I used hi.
Rinse and dry scallops and place in a shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with garlic salt, melted butter, and lemon juice.
Broil 6 to 8 minutes or until scallops turn golden. I broiled mine for 20 minutes since they were quite large.
Remove from the broiler and serve with extra butter if desired. I just spooned butter from the dish over the scallops and the rice.
Makes 3-4 servings.
