King Scallop Meat

Scallop meat has a sweet delicate flavour and requires very little cooking. Scallops are at their best steamed pan fried or grilled. Overcooking will spoil their texture making them rubbery and dry. Scallops have two types of meat in one shell the round white and meaty abductor muscle and the pointed coral or roe which is red or white and soft. We clean and prepare our scallops without soaking so our scallops don’t spit in the pan and cook evenly.
Scallops are the only bivalves that are active swimmers. By using their abductor muscle they can rapidly open and close the shell and express a jet of water to propel them forward. This allows them to move into deeper waters than other bivalves choosing nutrient rich feeding grounds where they bury themselves in recesses. From there they can detect approaching predators and escape.
King Scallops are found in deeper waters around the coast of Northern Europe. They are now the second most valuable shellfish species landed in Scotland. Diver caught Scallops are generally larger and fresher tend to be less gritty and cause little damage to the undersea flora and fauna. Available year round but fattest and juiciest just before spawning. Not at their best during the spawning season May to August.
