cooking scallops

smooth movesmooth move Posts: 438 Deckhand
the scallop topic in general fishing got me fired up. we love scalloping. it's a family thing from gathering, to cleaning, to cooking and eating. not many activities can compare for family fun. we have only cooked them in olive oil and butter. what are some of ya'lls favorite recipes?

    I cook them in EVOO with garlic and serve over pasta or cook them in a paella

    Fresh scallops are excellent sashimi, or an outstanding addition to ceviche. They need little cooking, less than one minute over medium heat. Fried scallops are a waste of tasteful protein.

    We add some onion and pesto.
    Ritual is to catch, clean, cook and gather around a platter with 4 of us armed with a fork. Quickly followed by deep sleep.
    Great meal after a long day of dealing with dorks.

    Light seasoning of  pepper, ginger powder.  A little EVOO and mirin in the pan and a dash of soy sauce.  Sautee over medium heat for about 1 minute.


    We then made sushi rolls out of them, or you could do salt, pepper, bread crumbs and butter in the individual shells and bake them.

    x2 on ceviche - they make an excellent ceviche...  



    Fritters (hush puppy mix + Everglades + onion)  basic recipe from MikeHels (long time member)...




    and though some fear it ;) - scallops are delicious fried - dip in egg wash then favorite coating.  :)

    x2 on light frying,, hope this year finds you and yours well!

    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    1. wrap scallops in bacon and cook on grill till done. Need to use toothpick to hold together
    2. franks redhot and use 1 cup  and mix with 1 cup apricot preserves heat on medium heat until mixed well.
    3. Let mixture cool for a few mintues and pour over cooked bacon wrapped scallops
    4. Delicious

    I like them blackened, fried, or sautéed with fresh garlic, cilantro, and butter.

    blackened and finished with a white wine cream sauce and then the whole thing poured over grilled mahi or your favorite grilled fish.   save a little sauce for the angel hair and a bottle of pinot grigio.
