Scallops with a Herb &
Parmesan Crust
Scallops with a herb and parmesan crust.


Place the scallops in their shells onto a heavy based baking tray.


Pre-heat the grill to medium


Add the bread, parsley, spring onion chunks, garlic, lemon zest, parmesan cheese and pepper to a food processor and blend until a breadcrumb consistency.


Divide the breadcrumb mixture equally across the top of each scallop.  Spray lightly with the rapeseed oil.


Place under the grill and cook for 4-6 minutes until golden brown and the scallops are cooked.


Serve straight away with a mixed green salad.


NB: I have not used salt in this recipe as the parmesan cheese will take care of that!
