1 1/2 pounds sea scallops, rinsed and patted dry
1/2 cup dry white wine
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1/2 cup cracker crumbs
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
2 tablespoons butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Arrange scallops in a single layer in a baking dish. Combine wine and lemon juice in a small measuring pitcher. Add salt and pepper to taste, and pour over the scallops.
Combine cracker crumbs, pecans, and parsley in a small bowl. Spoon evenly over the scallops. Drizzle the crumb topping with melted butter.
Bake in preheated oven until topping is golden and scallops are opaque, 10 to 12 minutes.
