Popcorn Scallops

boyzoma | Sep 2, 2010 05:24 PM

DH and I recently ate at a local restaurant at the beach and one of the appetizers was "popcorn scallops". They were very tiny, bite sized, juicy and with a nice brown, crispy breadcrumb coating. They were about the size of a thumbnail. My questions are:

Has anyone made these? If so, do you have a recipe you can share?

Since they were so small, and golden brown, would they have been frozen to be deep fried so they retain their melt-in-your mouth texture instead of being rubbery?

Would love to hear if someone can give some more info. I'd take them over popcorn shrimp any day!
