National Fried Scallops Day


Scallops are marine mollusks that are about two to five inches in length and swim rapidly in water by opening and closing their shells. One of the main ways they are eaten in the United States is by being fried, but there are many other ways to prepare them such as putting them in soups, in sushi, and sautéeing them in butter.

National Fried Scallops Day is observed next on Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019. It has always been observed annually on October 2nd.
