"Fried scallops are crazy easy to make on the stovetop with a handful of ingredients and a bit of vegetable oil. The breadcrumbs add texture and crunch while the Old Bay seasoning lends plenty of classic flavors. Crunchy on the outside and buttery tender on the inside, these fried scallops are first dredged and dipped in breadcrumbs then deep fried in a skillet until they’re a crispy golden brown. Scallops are the perfect seafood to fry up, alongside fried shrimp and fried crab legs of course, as the interior remains tender and plump while the exterior fries up to a perfectly crunchy golden hue just waiting to be devoured.
