  • “Hey Miller, yet another great recipe.The scallops were delicious.The blend of spices was very subtle, and didn’t cover up the natural flavor of the scallops, just enhanced it.I know you don’t like to hear this, but this is my new scallop recipe.I normally don’t like scallops cooked at home, but these were very good.One note to others: watch the cooking time.If your scallops aren’t huge, which mine weren’t, shave off a few minutes of cooking time.”

  • “Excellent.I did alter this with a bit of Old Bay Seasoning as I like it with seafood.I also cut the cooking time down by 5 min or so as my scallops were not that large.”

  • “They were good, but not great.Easy and fast for a quick dish.”

  • “I was looking for a fast tasty recipes for scallops and came across this one.My whole family loved it!I served with pasta seasoned with butter and garlic.Thanks for a great fast meal!”

  • “We tried this tonight and it was VERY good. Concensus in our household equals a grade of B. ( we grade everything here)Very nice spice, and very easy to prepare. We will surely make this again. We were planningour Easter menu tonight and decided for non-traditional. We will be having these scallops along with shrimp.Thanks,M illie, for sharing a wonderful recipe!!”

  • “This was excellent.Perfect blend of spices, and the times were perfect to meld the butter to the scallop.I used sea scallops on “broil hi” setting…If they were smaller scallops I would lower the cooking time.But do not change the ingredients!They really made my wife (who does not like scallops) beg for more!”

  • “This recipe is FANTASTIC! When I flipped the scallops I hit them with a dash more of the spices other than that I followed the recipe as listed. Just as good as any restaurants.”

  • “This was so easy to do. I didn’t hane chives on hand and used green onion instead. Popped them in the toaster oven and it worked out great. Thank you for this recipe!”

  • “We loved these! They were great and extremely easy. Thanks.”

  • “Delicious!”

  • “Amazing! I just made them for my family for dinner and my mother said “this is a meal you’d serve to impress someone”. Thank you for the great recipe”

  • “Fantastic, simple, broiled scallops…I made as written but did not add the chives and parsley, it was raining too hard for me to get them from the garden.I zapped the butter and olive oil then brushed over my HUGE scallops and broiled them for 10 minutes, then turned and did another 5 minutes.We’ll be making these again.Rest in Peace Miller and thanks for the recipe :)”

  • “Great recipe!This was my first time making scallops at home, and it was very easy.I did reduce the broil time by a few minutes, and also added some shallot salt (personal taste). Thank you for posting!”

  • “I used olive oil, no butter, I used sea salt, and a tad of cayenne. and put a little diced garlic on each one, and all O can say is DIVINE.I served them with a broccoli cheese rice, and everyone was asking for seconds.Thanks for the wonderful recipe.”

  • “Excellent!I needed something fast and easy for dinner, and this recipe was perfect.DH doesn’t like scallops, and this recipe was was simple to scale down for one person.Next time I think I will use fresh garlic rather than garlic powderand maybe a little pepper (just my personal preference).”

  • “I’ve been looking for a nice simple scallop recipe for awhile.This is the best one I’ve found.I used all butter (no olive oil), added quite a bit of salt, and baked them in the oven.This one really lets the sweet flavor of the scallop shine through.Yum!”

  • “I was just looking for a broiling time for scallops that I had planned to just sprinkle with a purchased Greek seasoning, but when I came across this recipe I figured I’d put in a ‘dash’ more effort. I substituted a butter flavored spray to hold down calories and just drizzled a small amount of olive oil over the top. My scallops were huge, but I still cut broiling time down to 10 minutes on the first side and 4 on the second. I was afraid they might be overdone, but they were perfect! I’m a Czech who’s a ‘wanna be’ Greek, but I really liked the change in seasonings. YUM!”

  • “Great recipe – even for someone not fond of scallops.Easy and last minute.Definitely an people pleasing entree with room for personal embellishments if so desired. “

  • “i thought the scallops were kind of bland, but perhaps i didn’t do something right?”
