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.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 1, 2013

This is one of the best scallop recipes I've tried. Without using all the butter that most recipes call for.

This was a good recipe! Love scallops but my husband doesn't so this was good for me - leftovers for lunch were just as good. Thanks for sharing!

This was amazing!

My husband said it was the best fish I've fixed in a really long time. The kids really liked it, too.

I used flounder instead of scallops.

The breading is very flavorful.

I did have to keep adding oil, though.

I don't know why but they stick in the pan... the flavor was okay though but my husband is not that fond of sea scallops.
