If you haven't yet tried these tiny gems, please do consider them! Bay scallops are sweet and mild, with a firm moist texture. They are delicious in pasta, as ceviche, baked with herbs, or lightly pan-seared.
Further, they are dry-packed, meaning that there are no chemicals added. (Wet-pack scallops on the other hand are soaked in a water-retentive sodium triphosphate solution so that 30% of what you pay for is water. Plus they exude so much water that they can't be properly seared.) Our sweet and tender scallops will caramelize nicely. Seafood Watch rates them a "Best Choice." Low mercury level.
