DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the scallops and drain to a towel.
  • In a large bowl, mix 1/2 cup of the flour, the corn meal, hot sauce, salt and pepper with enough beer to make a batter a little thinner than a pancake batter.
  • Put the remaining flour in a plastic bag, add the scallops, close the bag and shake well to coat them evenly.
  • Remove batches of the scallops, coat well in the batter and fry in the pre- heated oil until golden brown.
  • Remove the scallops from the oil and drain on paper towels.
  • These go great with batter fried okra, a big baked potato and Cocktail Sauce on the side.
