If you love scallops as much as I do, you are going to really love this recipe.
- 1 lb. raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1/2 lb. small scallops, whole
- 1/2 cup celery, minced
- 1/2 red chili pepper, minced
- 2 tbsp mayonnaise
- pinch of salt and pepper
- 1 lightly beaten egg
- 2 cups of potato chips, crushed and divided
- 1 tbsp. canola oil
- 4 crusty rolls
In a food processor, pulse the shrimp until finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in the scallops, celery, pepper, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, egg and 1 cup of the potato chips until really well combined.
Spread remaining potato chips on to a pie plate. Make sure they are crushed a bit more so no large chunks are present. Form the seafood mixture into patties and coat with the potato chips.
In a large frypan, heat the oil and cook the patties until the outside is golden and the seafood is opaque, This should take about 4 minutes each side.
Place a pattie on each bun, top with your favourite homemade coleslaw and replace with the top bun half.
This is soooo yummy. The only to make it even better is a patio/deck/beach and a cold glass of white wine. Life is good!
