Breaded Sea Scallops

Breaded Sea Scallops

"From Willow Grove, Pennsylvania, Martina Preston writes, 'I never liked seafood until my husband urged me to try scallops, and now I love them. He says my breaded version is the best he's ever had.' TIP: 'I put them on a paper-towel-topped plate to soak up excess oil,' Martina notes."
