Baked Ranch Coated Bay Scallop Recipe

Friday, October 12, 2012

A delicious coating and quick delicious way to make scallops for a dinner with some side dishes
 or as just an appetizer.

1 (1-ounce) envelope ranch salad dressing mix
1/2 cup dry Italian flavored bread crumbs or panko style
pinch of cayenne pepper
1 pound bay scallops these are small ones (cook longer for the sea scallops by at least 6 more minutes)
1 egg white beaten with 3 tablespoons water

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a plastic bag add the dressing and bread crumbs and spice.

Place the scallops in the egg whites mixture.

Shake scallops in the bread crumb mixture and place on a greased iron baking pan. Bake at 350 until golden browned.


  1. It looks very good :) I love scallops. Bye, have a great we

  2. Your first shot gave me a scallop craving.

  3. Thanks for being so inspiring!

  4. I've never used ranch dressing mix and lately have been seeing it as an ingredient everywhere. I must try. The scallops are luscious and oh-so-wonderfully-easy.

  5. I don't normally like scallops but these look good!

  6. Dear Claudia, This sounds like a delicious and easy way to make scallops. I love it with a nice side salad. Perfecto!! Blessings dearest. Catherine xoxo

  7. These sound delicious. I love that you put the crunchy panko on the scallops.

  8. Such a great recipe, Claudia. I use it for my oven baked fried chicken, the other day, and it was a huge success!

  9. I love semi-homemade dishes. Don't get me wrong I love cooking from scratch but its so nice sometimes to be able to toss a few ingredients together and come up with a delicious dish. I've never tried using dry ranch dressing. I bet it's just as good with chicken too. Thanks for sharing this. I'm going to try this.

  10. Scallops are cheaper in the UK than in Italy (at least this is what I have found) and I do them from time to time. Love the way you have done them! Ciao!

  11. Hi, very appetizing scallop dish. Look delicious. Usually Asian style we stir fry with broccoli and oyster sauce.

    Have a nice weekend.

  12. Delicious looking! I love scallops!
