    The results of this very easy recipe were outstanding. The scallops were succulent. I would try a few different spices next time, ie: white pepper or more garlic.

    I have tried many recipes and they all were not something I would try again. This one was outstanding. I have made it a few times and it comes out absolutely wonderful. I do add a few additional Ritz crackers.

    I have made many seafood dishes, but this one was my families favorite. I did add more Ritz and garlic. I also added a pinch of Old Bay.

    This recipe was very good! Used fresh bay scallops which just came into season here on Cape Cod. i placed individual servings in small casseroles & added a bit more garlic.
