Scallops - Fulton Fresh Finest Sea, Dry U/10, Wild, USA
Larger than their Bay cousins, Atlantic Sea Scallops have durable, white shells with radiating ribs. They have a soft, fleshy texture and a pleasantly mild and sweet flavor – a bit more assertive than Bays, but still delicious.

Region & Fishery
Unlike other bivalves like mussels and clams, most scallops are free-swimming. They actually swim by clapping their shells quickly, which moves a jet of water past the shell hinge, propelling them forward.
Because these Sea Scallops are “dry,” they won’t exude water when cooking them. So they’re perfect for searing in a hot pan until nicely caramelized on both sides. You may also bake or broil them, as well as grill them on skewers with fresh vegetables.
Scallops are a delectable source of Vitamin B12, Magnesium and Potassium, as well as being rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.
