From appetizers to dinner, you’ll find sweet and succulent scallop dishes to enjoy all summer long with these 25 Buttery Delicious Scallop Recipes!

My birthday is this weekend and, as birthday traditions go, I get to pick something special for my husband to make me for dinner.  I’ve had a really big craving for scallops lately (summer brings out the seafood lover in me), so we might have to do a little surf and turf as my birthday dinner this year.  My husband’s never cooked scallops before and he’s not a huge fan of them either.  So he can take care of the steak.  I’ll handle the scallops!

Scallops are like sweet, little fluffy pillows of seafood deliciousness. There really isn’t any other way to describe them.  But they’re so, so good and an honest treat when I get to have them. I’ve never really had them any other way than seared in olive oil with salt, pepper, and a little squeeze of lemon.  Truthfully, I find that’s all they really need, but I look forward to trying some of these recipes this summer!
