Cracker Crumb Baked Scallops are simply wicked; wicked delicious, wicked easy to prepare...they're just wicked good. I would be remiss not to focus on these little "juju beans of the sea". They are in season now (Oct-Dec) and you can pretty much find them anywhere in New England, specifically this time of year. Look for LOCAL, NATURAL (aka dry pack) scallops - avoid scallops (mostly imports) that have been treated with TSP.
These are bay scallops, the little ones. I always pick up a pound whenever I'm buying fish, mostly always using them in baked stuffed fish dishes. This time I decided to make them the center of attention.
