In the world of finer cuisine, scallops have become a favorite for appetizers and savory accompaniments to popular entrees. Unlike wet scallops, dry scallops are untreated and do not contain any additives. They are preferred for their superior flavor, fresher quality, and ease of cooking. These little treasures of the sea also expel less water than wet scallops, so you get a better value. Introduce scallops to your family, and this could be the start of a delicious tradition. Explore the wild-caught quality in our selection of frozen scallops.
Our exclusively fresh scallops were caught off the West Coast. Easy to prepare, you’ll soon find that five pounds can be used in a versatile array of savory dishes for your whole family to enjoy. If you are feeling experimental, try these dry scallops thawed, raw, thinly sliced, and marinated in carpaccio, crudo, or ceviche. If you’re not in an eccentric mood, scallops taste great atop pastas or salads and as the main ingredient in a hearty gumbo. One of the most popular ways to prepare scallops is by skewering and broiling in the oven or grilling over an open flame during a summer barbecue.
Aside from being extraordinarily flavorful and tender, our frozen scallops contain a variety of nutrients that can promote your cardiovascular health and increase heart rate variability as well as protection against strokes, heart attacks, and several kinds of cancer. These delectable bites are rich in Vitamin B12, phosphorous, and omega-3 fatty acids that support cell repair and growth.
