Baked Bay Scallops
Place desired quantity of scallops in container and thaw in refrigerator for 8 hours. For quicker thawing, place scallops in a colander and rinse under cold water for 5 to 7 minutes. Rotate scallops for even thawing.
Scallops are easy to prepare and require little cook time. For optimum flavor, broil or sauté scallops for approx. 5 minutes. Scallops are fully cooked when the center is opaque in appearance. Avoid over-cooking scallops.
