OK, If you are one of those who are opposed to the step-by-step recipe with photos, you may want to scroll on down thru this one.
On a Costco trip this morning We picked up some Lamb Ribs, a carrot cake, and some other treats and special stuff for the Easter dinner that will happen tomorrow. While at Costco we happened across some fresh Scallops for $8.00 a pound. Well, we had to have two pounds to try a coconut batter mix that we have had for awhile. The results were pretty good. We limited the menu to some fresh Asparagus and the Coconut battered Scallops.
Here is step 1.. The Batter mix, One bottle of Beer, and two eggs mixed in formed the batter. Scallops rinsed and drained were then ready to go.
Step 2- Blanche/ Semi-Cook (al dente)
the Asparagus to prep it for the oven treatment- cover with Parmesean cheese, then oven-bake it until the cheese browns a bit.
Step 3- Put the scallops that have been covered in the batter into a hot frying pan with about half to three-quarters of an inch of hot oil. Fry until golden brown.
Here is dinner for TWO- in fact we found that there were more scallops than we could eat at one meal. Due to the large size our usual 5 or 6 for a serving could well have been 3 or 4 !
Here is the finished product. I love both the Scallops and the Asparagus, so this dinner made me a very happy camper !! We will save some of the leftover scallops to add to some chowder shortly!
All in all a pretty good Costco Day.
