Beer Battered Potato Scallops

Beer Battered Potato Scallops

Is there anything better than a fresh, hot, crispy potato scallop? I love them but resent paying $1 for one scallop when they are so quick and easy to make at home for a fraction of the price. These are a definite family favourite when we are cooking fakeaway.

I love mine with a generous serve of salt and tomato sauce.

This batter recipe makes a lot, you could use the rest of it to make pluto pups, beer battered chips, or even battered savs.
