Sprinkle scallops with salt.
Roll each in flour, dip in egg and roll in bread crumbs.
Heat fat over low heat until very hot (375°F. if using thermometer), using just enough to cover an un-crowded single layer of scallops in frying basket.
Lower basket, and fry scallops until golden brown on all sides—3—4 minutes.
Drain on paper towels, and serve with lemon wedges or Tartar Sauce.
