Broiled Scallops with Crab

Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
Yield: 8-10 scallops


This is another favorite that is fabulous as an appetizer or wonderful with risotto and asparagus for a simple supper. Scallops can be a bit rich so you really don’t need too many if you are making a meal out of them. You can also serve one or two of them as a first course at a dinner party.


  • 8 oz container of Big T Coastal Provisions original or jalapeno crab dip
  • 8-10 sea scallops, depending on how you plan to serve them (stick with sea scallops, not the small bay scallops)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Skillet


  1. Pre-heat your oven to HIGH on broil.
  2. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet (preferably a cast iron skillet) over medium high heat.
  3. Salt and pepper the scallops on both sides and sear the scallops on both sides until golden brown.
  4. Remove the skillet from the heat and top each scallop with a teaspoon of Big T crab dip.
  5. Slide the skillet under the broiler and let the cheese in the crab dip get brown and bubbly.
  6. Serve warm and enjoy!
