Coquilles Saint-Jacques a la Bretonne

Scallops with Butter and Bread Crumbs

Sea scallops are one of the specialties of Brittany. In this very simple recipe they are baked with butter and breadcrumbs, and the results are much better than I would have imagined. It was the favorite dish of a couple of my guests.

The recipe as it is calls for too much butter, though most of it remains at the bottom of the rameskin so it's not consumed. Still, you could probably reduce the amount of butter with no ill effect. The slightly salted Breton butter would be ideal for this dish. I did't have access to it so I just used salted butter, if you use unsalted you may want to adjust the salt accordingly.
