Broiled Scallops

Broiled scallops are a delicious seafood dish that can be enjoyed as a main course or as an appetizer. Here is a simple recipe to make broiled scallops at home:

Broiled Scallops


  • 1 lb scallops
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
  • Lemon wedges (optional)


  1. Preheat your broiler to high.
  2. Rinse the scallops and pat them dry with paper towels.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, garlic, salt, and black pepper.
  4. Brush the scallops with the olive oil mixture on both sides.
  5. Place the scallops in a single layer on a broiler pan or baking sheet.
  6. Broil the scallops for 6-8 minutes, until they are golden brown on top and cooked through.
  7. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and serve hot, with lemon wedges on the side.

How do you know when Broiled Scallops are Done?

The scallops are ready when they are opaque in the middle and golden brown on the outside. They should be firm but buttery, not hard to cut or chew at all (via The Kitchn). Scallops only take a few minutes to cook, which means they can cook too quickly.

Enjoy your delicious and easy broiled scallops!
