We had a little beach therapy in Grand Cayman this month and let me say that it was exactly what I needed to pull me out of my cold weather funk. 🏖️
We were only on the island for a few days but it was amazing. We managed to pack in a whole lot of quality time in a short amount of time and thanks to the kids - we actually took time to rest and relax on the beach too. 😂 🌊
It was no surprise that the beaches on Cayman were as amazing and spectacular as I thought they would be but what I didn't expect were all the incredible restaurants on the island. We had some absolutely scrumptious meals. We dined on conch, scallops, snapper, tuna, calamari, crab, lobster, shrimp and mahi. We tried it all and it I can honestly say that we didn't have a bad meal the entire time we were on the island.
I've only recently discovered how much I enjoy scallops and the scallops on the island were so tasty that it made me want to come home and make them for myself. While I don't have the ambiance of the Caribbean sea to gaze upon while I eat them ... my homemade scallops were still mighty tasty. 😅 If you've never made scallops at home before - this is the recipe for you. It's simple, quick and totally delicious.
16 large sea scallops (1 - 1 ½ pounds)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
4 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese , grated

4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 Tablespoons olive oil
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the topping is browned.
