Scallops are large bivalve shellfish, with beautifully fanned shells which are pinkish on the outside and creamy white on the inside. Unlike many other species of shellfish, they can ‘swim’ away from danger by puffing a jet of water through their bodies in a kind of pump motion. Scallop meat is some of the finest eating in the sea, with its body being divided into two parts, the scallop itself and the crescent shaped, bright orange roe. Both parts are delicious and can be prepared at the same time – pan fried quickly with a little butter is a real treat.
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.
