As a scallop lover, I really enjoy this easy and minimalistic way of baking scallops – just olive oil, butter, garlic, salt and pepper. This was inspired by tigerfish’s oven-baked Spanish-style shrimps which was a love-at-first-sight dish to me.

But I have been such a complete sloth in cooking recently that I did not even want to prepare prawns, so I adapted the recipe with scallops instead. The result was amazing.

Baked Scallops + Spaghetti = Meal ♥

The juices from cooking the scallops is good stuff and it be a sin to not make good of it. So I usually make a small portion of pasta, toss it with the baked scallops and parsley … voila! – an amazingly easy and delicious one-dish meal is born.

    Is it too early in the day to crave scallops?
    No, don’t tell me. I already know the answer.

    NC, your dish is perfection! And I particularly love the double dose of garlic.

    Me too! I hate to devein prawns. Scallops are perfect for me. I love how scallops are naturally sweet. I believe grilling it will help to bring out its flavors more. Thanks for this simple, yet lovely recipe.

    Mmm scallops are my favorite seafood! I could eat a whole plateful of them (and did when I was 5 or so I hear). Love how fast and flavorful this is!

    I love scallops! Do you think this dish works with frozen scallops? Have always wanted to do something with those nice big frozen ones I see in ntuc. More affordable also

      yes! I’m using frozen scallops too. Just thaw them, rinse and pat dry with kitchen towel before use :)
