A scallop is a type of shellfish that belongs to the family Pectinidae. Scallops are found in oceans all over the world and are prized for their delicate, sweet flavor and tender, meaty texture. The most commonly harvested species of scallops are the Atlantic Sea scallop and the bay scallop.

Scallops have a distinctive fan-shaped shell that is typically ridged or grooved. The inside of the shell is lined with a series of small, white, fleshy structures called "meat" or "adductor muscles," which are the edible part of the scallop. The meat is firm and slightly chewy, with a slightly sweet and briny flavor that pairs well with a variety of seasonings and sauces.

Scallops are harvested by commercial fishermen using dredges, hand rakes, or diving equipment. They are sold fresh or frozen, and can be prepared in a variety of ways, including sautéed, grilled, fried, or baked.

Baked scallops are fresh scallops baked in a variety of seasonings, breadcrumbs, and butter. The scallops are usually served in their shell or in a casserole dish. To prepare baked scallops, the scallops are usually cleaned and seasoned with salt, pepper, and lemon juice. They are then topped with a mixture of butter, breadcrumbs, and garlic or other herbs, and then baked in the oven until the scallops are cooked through and the topping is golden brown.

Baked scallops can be served as an appetizer or as a main course. They are often accompanied by a side dish such as rice, vegetables, or a salad. Baked scallops are a popular dish in many seafood restaurants and are often enjoyed by seafood lovers around the world.
