Dinner Party Scallops


Yield: Serves 4.

A favorite with fish lovers. Quick and easy to prepare, but looks as though you went to a lot of trouble. Take the credit, anyway.


  • 2 pounds scallops (bay or sea)
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 tablespoons minced onions
  • 3 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


Wash and drain the scallops. Wipe dry. Place in a single layer in an ovenproof dish.

Melt the butter or margarine; add the garlic, onions, parsley, salt and pepper. Mix well and pour over the scallops. Let stand for 2 or 3 hours.
Broil under a moderate flame about 3-1/2 minutes on each side, or until the scallops look nice and brown.
