"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."
"Very Very Good!"
"This is our favorite treat of all time!"
"These are so good! I think they're more of an appetizer though, but that's just my opinion."
