Last night we took a little break from cooking but tonight we were back on the make-it-at home trail. Since our son is visiting us this week we are making everything he likes best. Tonight it’s fried scallops with a brussel sprouts salad.
This doesn’t take a great picture but, boy, is it good! The first time I ever had fried scallops was at Sanitary Seafood in a coastal town in NC over 30 years ago. The first time I ever tried to make them myself was just a few months ago. They are so delicious made this way. I know it isn’t the healthiest way to eat scallops but it is a real treat once in a while.
We found some good looking scallops at our local Harmon’S grocery store in Santa Clara, UT. I dredged them in seasoned flour, then egg, and finally seasoned panko breadcrumbs. John took our electric wok filled with oil outside and fired it up to 375F. Once the oil was hot, he cooked them for about 5 minutes, rolling them around until they ere golden brown and delicious. We did them in small batches.
What a great dinner!
