1 lb large sea scallops
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons dry white wine
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 cup grated parmesan cheese, divided
1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon dried parsley
- ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- ¼ teaspoon paprika
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Rinse scallops and pat until dry. Evenly spread olive oil on the interior of your Larder & Vine Braiser. Place scallops in an even layer inside the Braiser.
In a small bowl, whisk together melted butter, wine, lemon juice, ½ cup parmesan, salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried parsley, and cayenne pepper. Let the mixture rest for a few minutes to thicken. Once the mixture has thickened, drizzle evenly over the scallops.
Cover with the lid and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until scallops are fully cooked through, or the internal temperature reaches 115ºF.
Remove from oven, uncover, and switch oven to broil. Sprinkle the remaining ½ cup of parmesan cheese and paprika over the scallops. Broil for about 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp on top.
Remove from oven, garnish with fresh parsley, serve, and enjoy!
