King Scallops x12
- Sourced from from small, inshore Cornish boats, we've been supporting Cornish scallop fisherman for generations
- Available year-round
Our large, juicy Cornish king scallops, cut from the shell, will be delivered ready to cook and are sold by the dozen which will provide around 2 - 3 portions about the size of a 50 pence piece. We have been sourcing Falmouth Bay scallops for more than 25 years; we think they have the finest, sweetest flavour of all. Scallop meat is some of the finest eating in the sea and is divided into two parts, the scallop meat and the crescent shaped, bright orange roe. Both parts are delicious and can be prepared at the same time – we love them pan fried for 4-5 minutes with a little butter turning them over half way through cooking. We try always send you fresh scallops, but occasionally (usually because of bad weather preventing the Cornish boats going to see to fish) we send you freshly frozen scallops.
King scallops are best eaten straight away, or within 3 days of delivery. Store in your refridgerator and pack with ice if possible but avoid direct contact with the flesh. To freeze; place the scallops straight in the freezer upon delivery and aim to consume within 3 months. TIP: Write the date on the packaging before freezing. Do not re-freeze your fish after defrosting.
