French-Fried Scallops Day logo.It’s Seafood Month so one can indulge in as much sustainable seafood everyday of the month, not a bad thing, because of the health benefits and it all tastes so good. Today is French Fried Scallops Day! Scallops are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and low in calories. Scallops are a great source protein, they are versatile and can be served and prepared multiple ways. If you love scallops like I do, you will love the breaded version of these puppies. They can be fried, baked or even microwaved. Basically, you can just pat dry your Scallops, dip them in Italian dressing, and roll them in a mixture of Bread crumbs, Paprika, Garlic, and Parmesan cheese. Cook and serve with lemon. Now doesn’t that sound amazing and delectable! Bon appétit!!
