Parmesan-Crusted Broiled Scallops with Roasted Tomatoes

Since I finally had an evening at home I decided to indulge myself and cook a really fun meal. This ended up being so much easier than I had expected. And it was delicious...but I'm probably partial because I love scallops :)

You will need
For the Scallops:

  • 1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds sea scallops
  • 1 tablespoon margarine, melted
  • Cooking spray
For the Tomatoes:
  • 3 cups grape tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
1) Preheat broiler.
2) Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl; set aside. Brush scallops with margarine. Add scallops to bowl and toss to coat.
3) Place scallops on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray.

4) Place tomatoes in a bowl and add olive oil, salt and pepper; toss well to coat.

5) Place tomatoes on other half of broiler pan also coated with cooking spray.

6) Broil together for 10 minutes. For the scallops, broil until done (slightly firm). For the tomatoes, broil until they begin to brown, stirring occasionally.
