I guess most peoples’ guilty pleasures involve some sort of fabulous dessert or sky high nachos. My guilty pleasure is fried scallops. But Marymom, you say, why fry scallops when they are so delicious just seared in a pan. To that I say, have you ever tried them breaded and fried? They come out so succulently juicy and crispy at the same time. With a little tartar sauce they are sublime.
We use our electric wok outside to fry the scallops. Frying is way too messy to do in the house.
Along with the scallops we have tartar sauce and chard sautéed with corn and garnished with toasted garlic slivers and pecans.
This is about the only fried thing I ever eat. It is totally worth it!
