4 To 6 Servings
1 (1-Ounce) Envelope Ranch Salad Dressing Mix
1/2 Cup Dry Bread Crumbs
1 Pound Bay Scallops, Rinsed (See Note)
Step 1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Step 2. In a large resealable plastic storage bag, combine dressing mix and bread crumbs; seal and shake to mix. Add scallops and toss to coat.
Step 3. Place scallops in a single layer in baking dish and bake 13 to 16 minutes, or until the outsides are golden and the insides are firm and white.
NOTE: Bay or sea scallops will work fine here. I prefer the smaller bay scallops because I think they're sweeter. If you do use sea scallops, add an additional 5 minutes to the baking time.
