I tried this recipe for scallops. It is the recipe I have been looking for. I was never satisfied with any fried scallop recipe I tried. The scallops were delicious. Thanks Christine!!!!

The batter was just too thick for us. We prefer the cornmeal/flour mixture with no egg rather just using the juice of the oysters to make the breading stick. The key to keeping the breading from falling off is to make sure your oil is hot enough. I use an electric skillet to regulate the heat of the oil.

Very delicious and easy, though a lot of the breading was leftover. Others might like to have more than 12 ounces of oysters for this recipe.
