scallop gallop


T
rot on over and pick up a bowl of this goodness. I used up all the scallops that were whole and then I tossed the bits and pieces into this fried rice.



Let me tell you that scallop fried rice is unlike any other, shrimp is good, pork is fine and so is chicken but to bite into plump little bites of scallop - oh yeah!




I will definitely buy 'bottom of the barrel' scallops any ol' time I find em' because tossed into some rice like this they steal the show!



I had a few questions as to what the red spice was that was around the plate of the other scallop dishes - well its none other than good old New Mexico red chile - if you are talking about the orange stuff thats roe.

Love the double scallop post, both here and at Donna's place. Such great pictures and love the recipes!

The guest posting thing makes my favorite blogging world feel just like a neighborhood. Good stuff, and ooh la la, as usual, from Donna.

Just telling it like it is said...

I'm all about the Asian cuisine..

KennyT said...

Wow, scallop fried rice, how luxurious!

Jenn said...

Don't think i've had scallops in fried rice, yet. It's always been shrimp. Nice way to use up the leftover bits.

That fried rice looks so perfect cooked, not too dry, not too moist. And the plump, bouncy scallop makes it look scrumptios indeed.

TavoLini said...

That fried rice looks mighty nice--fluffy eggs and plump scallops YUM.

girlichef said...

....trotting.... yum!

buffalodick said...

Good idea with the scallops in that dish! On sale here this week, and I gotta get some!

doggybloggy said...

stacey: I wish I always have left over scallops

snow: go for it - its so easy to make

emiglia: my pleasure - and thank you for stopping by my blog

leela: good rice is good rice - and I like good rice

tavolini: any time the word 'plump' is used it has to be good

girli: you better hop, skip and jump

buff: pick some up - in fact they were better like this than on their own

Harmony said...

Fried rice sounds delightful. As always great pictures! Sometimes I don't know what amazes me more, the food or the picture.

oneshotbeyond said...

nice job on these photographs!!!

Pam said...

I love fried rice - using scallops in it is a fantastic idea. YUM!

Marjie said...

Yes, I'd take the bottom of the barrel scallops served like that, too!

Leela said...

Mourning the fact that my comment has so many misspelled words ...

Pooja said...

Ohhh that looks awesome! Scallops in fried rice. What more could I ask for?

Reeni♥ said...

Fried rice just got an upgrade - this looks so fresh and delicious! Perfect!

The Duo Dishes said...

Fried rice, but of course! Toss in some pineapple next time. It's good and sweet.

Spin said...

Hey! Will you stop by Thursday for HNT?
Thanks

lisaiscooking said...

Ok, shrimp fried rice is my all-time comfort food, but that could easily be changed to scallop fried rice. Looks great!

gastroanthropologist said...

Oh scallops in fried rice...I love how you left the big and whole. I hate when fried rice becomes a hodge-podge and bits of this and that. I like to bit into something and have the flavor explode!

burpandslurp said...

I've never had a scallop fried rice dish before! I guess this won't make the $4 per dish mark! But WHOLE scallops...oh my, talk about decadence! Love!

♥peachkins♥ said...

My Taste Heaven said...

Impressed with your yummy looking fried rice, especially it's with my favourite scallops.

pigpigscorner said...

I always use dried scallops in fried rice, nvr tried fresh ones in fried rice before. Sure looks tasty!

Grace said...

i've never quite been able to fully enjoy and appreciate the taste and texture of scallops, which is quite a shame, is it not? this looks like a lovely dish for the scallop-lover though. :)

zoe said...

I have some scallops in the freezer I might use for this! I love your blog!

Teresa Cordero Cordell said...

OMG, this looks amazingly delicious. I don't eat very much seafood, it's hard to trust the quality of it here in the desert Southwest. BUT, I am going to look for some scallops and try your recipe with the fried rice. Hm..I can taste it now. I love the title of your post...Scallop Gallop. Clever guy.
