Ingredients

  • 1

    pint shucked clams or 1 pound fresh or frozen scallops

  • 1

    cup flour

  • 1/2

    tsp sugar

  • 1

    beaten egg

  • 2

    tbsp. cooking oil

  • Shortening or cooking oil for deep-fat frying

Directions

Thaw scallops if frozen and cut in half if large. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels, set aside. For batter, in a medium mixing bowl combine flour, sugar & 1/4 tsp salt. In a small bowl, combine egg, 2 tbsp. cooking oil and 3/4 cup cold water, add to flour mixture, beat smooth. In a deep fryer or a 2-quart saucepan heat 2 inches oil for 375. Dip clams or scallops into batter. Fry a few at a time until golden brown, turning once. Allow 1 to 1-1/2 minutes for clams and 2 to 2-1/2 minutes for scallops. Remove from fat and drain on paper towels. Keep fried clams/scallops warm in 300 degree oven while frying remaining seafood.
