Great for a relatively quick seafood meal.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

The herbs and seasoning in the breading of this scallop recipe add so much flavor to this simple recipe. The lemon pepper and lemon juice flavors are prominent and pair fabulously with the scallops. Quick, easy and very impressive! The Test Kitchen
