Step 1


Whisk first 5 ingredients in large bowl to blend. Make well in center. Add eggs, scallops, green onions, red onion, clam juice, pilsner, and jalapeño to well; stir to blend.

Preheat oven to 250˚F. Pour enough oil into heavy large deep saucepan to reach depth of 1-inch. Attach deep-fry thermometer and heat oil over medium-high heat to 325˚F. Working in batches, drop batter by heaping teaspoonfuls into hot oil. Fry until puffed, deep golden brown, and cooked through, turning occasionally and adjusting heat to maintain 325˚F, about 6 minutes for each batch. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper-towel-lined baking sheet. Keep warm in oven while frying remaining batter. Transfer fritters to plates. Serve with tartar sauce and lemon wedges.
