Easy-Baked Garlic and Herb Scallops
serves 2

Garlic & Herb ScallopsINGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound U-10 scallops (about 6), cut in half horizontally

  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

  • 4 cloves garlic, grated

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • Salt and pepper

  • 9 ounces potato gnocchi


Preheat the broiler.  Bring a medium pot of water to a boil, and salt the water.

Lightly spray a baking dish with nonstick spray.  Arrange the scallops halves, touching, in a single layer.  In a small bowl, whisk together parsley, garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper.  Pour over scallops.

Place the baking dish on a tray, and broil for 12 minutes.  Boil the gnocchi until the float—about 4 minutes.  Drain.

Lift the scallops out of the baking dish, and toss the gnocchi around in the sauce.  Place the scallops back on top, and serve.
