We will go to the sea today. Scallops. Easy to make. Easy to eat. Let’s cook.
½ pound scallops
2 tablespoons very fine breadcrumbs
1 teaspoon paprika or Spanish smoked pimentón
1 tablespoon corn flour
1 tablespoon corn meal
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Some extra virgin olive oil
This is going to be very easy. First, make sure the scallops are fresh. Then prepare the breadcrumbs, the smoked pimentón, the corn flour and the corn meal. Mix well and add the salt ant the black pepper too. Let the scallops get into this powdered mix.
Heat some oil in a pan. Do not use much, just two or three tablespoons. When it is hot, fry the scallops. Do it gently so that the scallops do not lose the breading. Cook them for about four minutes. Then, they will be ready.
A perfect tapa. A perfect appetizer. It can go well with almost everything. You choose. Enjoy!
