Battered and deep fried scallops? That’s disgusting and only for heathens, nothing more than a scallop McNugget! Once you batter and deep fry something the chances of discerning specific flavours become minimal. Deep fryers add their own combinations of flavours to anything that is cooked in them because of the sheer number of different items that are actually deep-fried in any specific fryer. Scallops should only be eaten fried in butter (in a hot cast iron pan with butter) or wrapped with bacon and baked.
Pollock is often a substitute for lobster in lobster salads or soups. It’s a pretty good substitute for those purposes, but calling it lobster is a dishonest thing.
