General Information

Scallops are a cosmopolitan family of bivalves, found in all of the world’s oceans, though never in freshwater. They are one of very few groups of bivalves to be primarily free-living; many species are capable of rapidly swimming short distances and even of migrating some distance across the ocean floor.
Scallops are highly prized as a food source, and are considered worldwide a delicacy

Sensory Characteristics

Members of the shellfish family, scallops harvested from the sea have a translucent white color and a delicate flavor. Fresh scallops have a light, sweet scent reminiscent of the ocean. If scallops smell fishy, they are no longer fresh. Unless you cook them in rich, creamy sauces or cheeses, sea scallops are low in calories and full of healthy nutrients.
