If you are in the know as far as environmental news, you might be aware that some scallop dredging operations are being questioned for their sustainability. Our efforts with these albalone steaks are evidence of just how much we are doing to make sure we avoid these practices. Harvested from the pristine waters of the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, these natural California red scallops are the perfect option for the environmentally conscious. Unlike most seafood, the quality between frozen and fresh scallops is almost impossible to notice, which is why we trim, tenderize, vacuum pack, and freeze this variety prior to shipping them out. Once you receive them, simply thaw for 12-24 hours prior to enjoying for the best flavor. Technically, albalone are not actually scallops, but they are so often confused with them because of their taste and texture. Each steak weighs around an ounce or slightly more and offers a meaty texture that can be thoroughly enjoyed when properly cooked.
