NATIONAL FRIED SCALLOPS DAY
On October 2nd National Fried Scallops Day serves up a seafood dish enjoyed across the country.
A scallop is a common name applied to many species of marine bivalve mollusks in the family Pectinidae. Scallops are a cosmopolitan family and are found in all of the world’s oceans.
Many scallops are highly prized as a food source. The name scallop applies to the meat of the scallops when it is used as seafood. The tender meat is harvested in a variety of sizes. Larger medallions grill deliciously over an open flame. Smaller scallops pair nicely in soups or pasta.
Like many types of seafood, cooks should be careful not to overcook. The meat becomes tough and rubbery. However, when cooked to just done, the meat is melt-in-your-mouth tender.

Did you know, in Italy, scallops is a dish of potatoes, veggies and thin slices of pork in a brown gravy. So, don’t be surprised if you order scallops and the waiter doesn’t bring you seafood! Yep, this happened to me recently. The dish was very good, just imagine my surprise expecting a seafood dish and receiving pork.
