  • 10 scallops
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoon parmesan
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian herbs
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 25 g butter (0.80 oz)
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil

For the tartar sauce

  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 gherkins
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • lemon juice to taste if needed


  • Use kitchen towels to pat dry the scallops.
  • Have 3 bowl ready, one for the egg, which is beaten well, one for breadcrumbs, and one for flour.
  • To the bowl of breadcrumbs, add the grated parmesan, dried herbs, salt and pepper and mix well.
  • Dip each scallop into the beaten egg first, then coat well with flour, shaking off the excess flour, dip into the egg again, then coat well with breadcrumbs.
  • Drizzle the olive oil over an oven-proof dish, and add the butter to it.
  • Preheat the oven to 220 degrees Celsius (430 Fahrenheit).
  • Place the dish in the oven for 2-3 minutes to allow the butter to melt.
  • Arrange the scallops in the buttery dish, then flip them over so they can be coated with the butter mixture on both sites.
  • Bake for 15 minutes until golden, turning them over half the way through the baking time.
  • To make the tartar sauce, finely chop the gherkins and caper, and use your hands to squeeze out as much liquid as you can.
  • Add them to the mayo, season with black pepper, and lemon if needed.
