1. In a large saucepan, heat 2 inches of vegetable oil to 350°. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk the all-purpose flour with the cornmeal, baking powder, salt and a pinch of pepper. Add the eggs, clam broth and beer and whisk until the batter is smooth. Fold in the scallops, scallions, onion and jalapeno.
