Caught by dredging in the North-East Atlantic coast of the USA. The scallops are 'shucked' to remove the edible part of the scallop, the adductor muscle; this is the cylindrical white meat that holds the two shells together.
Clean, sweet sea taste, firm texture and creamy white appearance.
Store in freezer (-18C or colder) for not longer than about 3-6 months. Defrost before cooking (in refrigerator overnight), then store bagged in refrigerator (0-5C) or ice. Consume within 2-3 days of thawing. Do not refreeze.
Lightly pan-fry to preserve and enhance the natural flavor and succulence of these scallops. Light on seasoning. Salt and pepper and olive oil or a light creamy sauce. For best result, slightly undercook just before serving. DO NOT OVERCOOK.
