Sorry... just tickled my funny bone


Crumbed Scallops with Sweet Chilli Mayo – I need to give these another go!

 
Carole's Chatter: Crumbed Scallops with Sweet Chilli Mayo – I need to give these another go!
These crumbed scallops were tasty but the crumb didn't stick quite as I would have liked.  Any suggestions for improvement are most welcome.
I used a punnet of fresh scallops which had been prepared.  But there was still the odd little brownish bit so I cleaned that all off – a bit fiddly but important in my opinion.  I left the coral on (the orange bit) – we regard that as essential.
I patted the scallops as dry as I could and then double dredged them in egg and panko breadcrumbs. 

I shallow fried the scallops – if I had a deep frier that would probably have been better.
They don't need much time in the pan at all – if you cook them more than about 2 to 3 minutes you risk getting little rubberised balls.
I served it with a sweet chilli mayonnaise – some mayo with sweet chilli sauce, a smidgen of hot chilli jam and salt and pepper.  I think a little lemon juice in it would have been good although I did have lemon wedges on the side.
