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.
