I love scallops, and I wanted to try them fried but had limited ingredients. This was super easy and delicious. I started to make it all the time.

  • Whisk egg lightly in a bowl. Dip scallops in egg; place in the bread crumb mixture in the bag. Seal bag and shake until scallops are coated with bread crumbs.

  • Bring butter, olive oil, and lemon juice to a simmer in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add breaded scallops; cook, shaking skillet occasionally, until browned, 6 to 7 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Use plain bread crumbs if preferred.

I use bay scallops, but sea scallops would also be good.

I really enjoyed this recipe. I only needed one serving so I cut the recipe back. I heated the oil on high until it shimmered added the scallops and turned the heat down to med. high and cooked them for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Cooking bay scallops for 6-7 minutes is way too long IMHO. I didn't have a fresh lemon I was so sure that I did so I omitted that part of the recipe. Thanks for sharing and I look forward to trying this recipe again. Read More
