Ingredients

  • 1 lb. Scallops
  • 1/3 cup Bread Crumbs(or crushed Corn Flakes)
  • 1/5 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp low fat Buttermilk
  • 1/2 tsp ground Thyme

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 500F. Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray and set aside.
  • Combine scallops and buttermilk, turning to coat in a mixing bowl. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes to marinate. This will make the scallops tender.
  • In small mixing bowl, combine the bread crumbs (or corn flake crumbs), salt and thyme.
  • Dredge each scallop in crumb mixture, coating both sides.
  • Arrange scallops on baking sheet.
  • Bake carefully turning scallops over until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.

Notes

This is a very easy appetizer to make and it cooks very fast. I don't recall where I got the recipe from, but I have made it many times and it's always a hit. You can use either bread crumbs or corn flakes or combination of the two to dredge the scallops in for baking.
