Baked Scallops

Sea scallops are the large (and more commonly found) type. Bay scallops are very small. You can use either one, but we typically go with the larger ones. Make sure that they’re very fresh and cook them on the same day if possible. You don’t need to do much to really good, fresh scallops, which is one reason we like them so much.

Baked Scallops
This is a very simple way to cook scallops, especially for those times when the stovetop or skillet is being used for other things. You can add just about any fresh or dried herbs. My favorites for this dish are tarragon, dill, lemon thyme, and rosemary. Herbes de Provence is a mixture of dried herbs that is also very nice with scallops.
