About Bay Scallops

Scallops are active swimmers, propelling themselves along the ocean floor by clamping their shells together using the muscle called the eye — the part that is eaten. Because scallops do not close their shells completely, they spoil quickly and are usually shucked before reaching the market. The muscle is iced immediately, and the rest discarded. Sometimes the roe is left intact, which is a delicacy yet to be appreciated here in the States. True bay scallops (known as Cape Cod) are rare and very expensive. Most “bay” scallops are Calico scallops, harvested from Mexico and Florida. The most important difference lies in the processing. “Dry” scallops are preferable, as unlike “wet” processed scallops, they have no water or preservatives added.
