Serve these tasty deep fried scallops with tartar sauce or a homemade remoulade sauce.

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Total Time: 2 minutes


  • 2 cups scallops, cut to about 3/4-inch cubes if large
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • fine dry bread crumbs


If scallops are large, cut into 3/4-inch cubes. Dry completely with paper toweling or clean towels. In a bowl, combine flour, salt, and paprika. In another bowl, whisk eggs with water. Put bread crumbs in a third bowl. Dip scallops in the flour mixture, then dip in egg, then in the bread crumbs. Fry in hot oil at about 370° until nicely browned, about 2 minutes.
