Buying Scallops online: Know What to Look for
Sea scallops have a sweet rich taste that ranges from mild to briny. Raw, the drum shaped meat is a shiny, creamy white, sometimes pink or orange. Top quality scallops should have an ivory translucence and elastic springiness that allows them to keep their shape.
Our scallops are harvested directly from the ocean, shucked on deck, then immediately frozen on the boat to capture their quality.
Scallops caramelize naturally during cooking to a golden brown color that is very attractive when serving. Scallops generally have a natural vanilla color.
Thaw and thinly slice for a crudo or sashimi-style treat. Sear lightly to let the sweet flavors caramelize. Wrap in bacon to infuse with a smoky aroma and crispy texture.
Scallops are rich in protein, low in fat, and a good source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids. They also offer other nutrients, such as vitamin B12 and minerals.
Buying Fresh Seafood Online from Anderson Seafoods has never been so easy, or tasted so good!
How to properly defrost frozen seafood: We recommend that all frozen seafood be defrosted by placing product in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours depending upon the density. Never force thaw a product by running it under water (hot or cold as it can cook the product). Not only does this reduce the flavor, but it is also a health hazard.
