Preheat the oven to 400. Thaw 12 oz of frozen bay scallops. Melt 4 tbsp butter in a glass pie plate. Spread the scallops out in the pie plate in a single layer. Pour a few tbsp of stout beer over them. (I usually use white wine, but I didn't have any...so I used beer instead). Sprinkle bread crumbs and garlic powder over the scallops. Bake for 20 minutes.
