100% Wild Caught Atlantic Sea Scallops
Physical Description: Approximately 2 lbs of U10 size Sea Scallops. Our scallops are shucked at sea, vacuum sealed and flash frozen to maintain freshness. Scallops are a highly prized shellfish for their delicate texture and taste. Ranging from pale pink to light beige with a soft texture.
Cooking: Reaching 1.5 to 2 inches in diameter, they can be pan-seared much like a filet mignon, with the high heat producing a crispy outer crust while leaving the center tender and medium to medium-rare. Grilling also yields delicious results. Always pat scallops dry before tossing on the grill. When prepared properly, scallops offer tender, sweet-yet-briny goodness and shine in dishes with simple preparation. You should thaw them overnight in the fridge; don’t use a microwave and don’t thaw them at room temperature. In a pinch, you can defrost frozen scallops by sealing them in a plastic zipper bag and running cold (not warm or hot) water over them.
Nutrition Information: Scallops are rich in vitamin B12 and phosphorus. They are a good source of magnesium and potassium and many trace elements. Scallops are a very lean source of protein (80 percent) and they provide over 80 nutrients! They are low in calories and provide a tremendous energy source.
