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.

How to Observe National Fried Scallops Day

Celebrate the day by eating fried scallops. Have some at a restaurant or make your own.
