Scallops Al Forno
This is probably one of the easiest recipes in my collection of seafood recipes, yet it ranks way up there as being one of the most delicious! Don't let the fancy Italian name fool you into thinking it is difficult. Al Forno just means baked in the oven.
I used to have to chop and mince garlic and then add other ingredients to give this dish the flavor I wanted. But now I have it all in one bottle of Star Fine Foods Garlic Infused Olive Oil. I love this oil and it is just perfect for this recipe. Oh My Goodness this is so good.
Scallops Al Forno
1 pat of butter
1 pound of fresh sea scallops
1 cup of panko bread crumbs
2 tablespoons of Star Fine Foods Garlic Infused Olive Oil
1 tablespoon of chopped fresh parsley
salt and pepper to taste
Use the butter to grease a small casserole dish large enough to hold the scallops. Pat scallops with paper towel and add salt and pepper. Set aside.
Mix the panko and parsley with the olive oil until it just sticks together to make a nice crumb coating. Add more oil or more breadcrumbs as needed. Sprinkle some of the bread crumbs on the bottom of the greased casserole.
Arrange the scallops in the casserole dish and then completely cover them with the breadcrumb mixture. Bake in 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes until scallops are opaque and topping is golden brown.
You may also put the scallops under the broiler for a few seconds to get even more golden. But be careful the bread crumbs will burn quickly if you are not watching.
