We are so blessed to be able to live in Florida with an abundance of fresh sea food. I hope you like my spin on scallops on the half shell. You can use as an appetizer or as a main course with pasta alfredo and garlic bread

How to Make FRESH BAY SCALLOPS ON THE HALF SHELL

Step-by-Step

  1. When cleaning your scallops only remove the meat from the top shell. Leave the meat attached to the bottom half
  2. Melt 1 stick of butter with 4 minced cloves of garlic on a low heat. Add your creole seasoning( to your taste) and a generous squeeze of lemon juice. Low heat just to bring the flavors together.
  3. Crush up the sleeve of crackers and put in separate bowl. Cut the tomato in 4 pieces, de-seed and dice the flesh fine and add to the cracker mixture.
  4. Mix together the cracker mixture and melted butter mixture.
  5. Add "Just A Pinch" of cracker mixture to each scallop. You don't want to over power the flavor of the scallop. I then add more creole seasoning and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and another squeeze of lemon. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes
