Moroccan Baked ScallopsINGREDIENTS

  • 8 U-10 sea scallops

  • Kosher salt

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh cilantro

  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ras-el-hanout

Preheat the broiler.  Slice the scallops in half horizontally.  Spray two small or one large gratin dish lightly with cooking spray.  Arrange the scallops in a single layer in the dishes, and season with salt.

Mix the lemon zest, cilantro, and panko together in a small bowl.  Sprinkle over the scallops.

Mash together the butter, ras-el-hanout, and harissa in a small bowl.  Place one dollop of compound butter on each scallop.
