  • 12 fresh sea scallops
  • 12 scallop shell halves well cleaned
  • Sea salt 12 pinches
  • 1 medium white onion
  • 1 bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 7 Tbsp butter at room temperature softened
  • 3/4 cup fine breadcrumbs


  • Rinse the scallop shells well under cold running water to remove any sand and grit. Set them aside to drain and dry.
  • Preheat your oven to 390°F.
  • Place the softened butter in a mixing bowl. Mince the onion and add it to the butter. Mince the parsley leaves and add them to the bowl. Using a fork, mix the butter, onions, and parsley to combine well.
  • Place a scallop inside of each shell half. Season each scallop with a nice pinch of salt. Top each with a spoonful of the onion and parsley butter.
  • Cover each scallop with breadcrumbs.
  • Place the filled scallop shelves on a sheet tray. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 8 minutes until the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
  • Serve the scallops immediately while hot.
