5 ounces of scallop meat, cleaned and ready to cook, has just 128 calories and 2 gram of fat! They are delicious, fast cooking, and very versatile. Most of us love breaded and fried scallops from our favorite seafood house. However, an average 5 ounce portion of breaded and fried scallops from a restaurant contains 386 calories and 19 grams of fat. You don’t need to fry them to enjoy them. Try grilling scallops, or marinating them in a citrus mixture, then broiling or searing them in a skillet. Their mildly sweet flavor will compliment almost any pasta or vegetable dish.
