Fun Fact

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.

Product Preparation

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.

Product Nutrition

Scallops are a delectable source of Vitamin B12, Magnesium and Potassium, as well as being rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.
