I served this with basmati rice and the meal was exceptional! A keeper for sure.

This is a very nice recipe. The dish definitely comes out better when using larger scallops. Additionally, watch your flame, as it's easy to burn. Doing the egg wash, as others have recommended, is a good idea to help ensure your bread crumb mix sticks. A great dish which I'll make again. Cheers, Michael

You omitted telling us to check scallops for the fibrous attachment on the side of the scallop, and be very careful with the temperature when cooking the scallops, or you can over brown the solids in the butter and get a bitter taste. I finally ended up cooking the scallops in EVOO and adding butter after I removed the scallops and then I could get the desired shade from the butter solids before adding the wine, to deglaze the pan. It’s a lot easier on the blood pressure!

Wonderful dinner for husband and me! I made mushroom risotto instead of rice.

I found this recipe so good I threw away my other Scallop recipes.

i tried using panko instead of crumbs. they didnt stick, and then burned in the pan, which spoiled the sauce. next time id add an egg wash, and a bit of garlic and say sauce.

Wow - made it with a combination of Scallops and Shrimp over a Portobello mushroom baked with Mozzerella cheese - still twitching

It was good but the crumbs didn't stick to the scallops. I used high fiber instead of bread. My wife said it was: Different! Ha,ha!!

Very easy recipe that tastes great, be careful not to over cook the scallops though

We add a little soy sauce to ours for a little flavor, and no rice this time. Fabulous!

It's a simple recipe for a novice cook- just about the flavor for a mild scallop seasoning- it doesn't hide the flavor of the scallop.

Just had this tonight, mixed the Panko bread crumbs with seasoned regular bread crumbs, dipped scallops in an egg wash and all the bread crumbs stayed on. Served them over rice pilaf. Yum will cook this agsin

Super easy and was better than any scallops I've eaten at a restaurant. Not to mention the comfort of home ;) Bed of fresh spinach, whole wheat linguini, scallops that were topped off with sauce in which I added approx. 8 oz of Alfredo. YUM eeeee!

Anything with this much butter has to taste good.

Tasty recipe. The Panko bread crumbs did not adhere to the scallops as I hoped, but they were great as part of the sauce. I would fix these again
