"Really easy and everyone loved it. Could have doubled the recipe and we'd have eaten it all. Added a tbsp of lemon juice to the butter this time, which was good."


4 tablespoon Butter; melted
1 1/2 pounds bay scallops; rinsed, drained
1/2 cup seasoned low-carb dry bread crumbs
1 teaspoon Onion powder
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Dried parsley
3 garlic cloves; minced
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan cheese

Original recipe makes 4



Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Pour melted butter into a 2-quart oval casserole dish. Distribute butter and scallops evenly inside the dish.

Combine the bread crumbs, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, parsley, minced garlic and Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle this mixture over the scallops.

Bake in pre-heated oven until scallops are firm, about 20 minutes.

This recipe yields 4 servings; 7 carb grams per serving.

Low Carb Bread Crumbs: We recommend using the pre-made low-carb bread crumbs currently available from Synergy Diet, but you can keep a supply on hand by making them yourself as well. Make a loaf of low-carb bread your choice of which one; then dry the slices and crush by hand or in food processor. Another option is to use crushed pork rinds. And finally, the Plain or Sesame Cheeters crackers also crush well in a blender or food processor to make great "crumbs". Season as you wish.

This was really good. Although I don't usually like bay scallops, these were good and tender. The topping was delightful

Delicious recipe. Very easy to prepare.

Very easy recipe that doesn't overwhelm the mild scallop taste. I used garlic powder but left out the minced garlic. I would definitely make this again.
