National Fried Scallops

It's National Fried Scallops Day! A scallop is a type of marine mollusk in the Pectindae family. Scallops are typically two to five inches in size and can swim by rapidly opening and closing their shells. The muscle used for this activity is the only part of the animal that we eat.

Scallops are a highly prized seafood delicacy, known for their delectable taste and the variety of ways in which they can be prepared. In Japan, for example, scallops are served in soups or prepared as sushi. In Western cultures, scallops are usually breaded, deep-fried, or sautéed in butter.

To celebrate National Fried Scallop Day, enjoy some delicious fried scallops paired with a glass of white wine. Bon appétit!

How do you like to eat Scallops?

Same here. I like them pan sauted or even grilled.

I love them but rarely prepare them myself. I will order them at my favorite seafood restaurant!

 We don't eat seafood here.  Although when I was little I loved scallops!!  I think we used to eat them wrapped in bacon.
