Seasonal, small and sweet. These succulent Cape Cod gems are only available for a small window of time each year. Trust us, they're worth the wait.

Local Bay Scallops Broiled with Bread Crumbs

Serves 2-4


  • 1 lb. Bay Scallops
  • 3-4 tablespoons butter
  • Seasoned panko bread crumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Capers and a wedge of lemon (optional)


  • Pre-heat oven to broil.
  • Place Bay Scallops on a small cast iron skillet and pat them dry.
  • Season with salt and pepper and place 3 or 4 thinly sliced pats of butter on top of scallops.
  • Add seasoned panko bread crumbs if desired.
  • Broil just until tops of scallops turn a light golden brown. The scallops don't need to be cooked all the way through.
  • Garnish with capers and a wedge of lemon.

If you like the scallop cooked more, place skillet on stove top and cook on medium high heat for 3 minutes. If using a broil pan, bake scallops before broiling for 3-5 minutes at 375.
