Today's Reason to Celebrate

October 02, 2022 is

National Fried Scallops Day

It's National Fried Scallops Day! A scallop is a type of marine mollusk in the Pectindae family. Scallops are typically two to five inches in size and can swim by rapidly opening and closing their shells. The muscle used for this activity is the only part of the animal that we eat.

Scallops are a highly prized seafood delicacy, known for their delectable taste and the variety of ways in which they can be prepared. In Japan, for example, scallops are served in soups or prepared as sushi. In Western cultures, scallops are usually breaded, deep-fried, or sautéed in butter.

To celebrate National Fried Scallop Day, support your local seafood restaurant and order some delicious fried scallops. Bon appétit!
