 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.
