NATIONAL FRIED SCALLOPS DAY
Each year on October 2, it is National Fried Scallops Day.
A scallop is a common name which is applied to many species of marine bivalve mollusks in the family Pectinidae. Scallops are a cosmopolitan family and are found in all of the world’s oceans.
Many scallops are highly prized as a food source and the name “scallop” is also applied to the meat of the scallops when it is used as seafood.
