About Sea Scallops

Scallops differ in an important way from clams, mussels and other bivalve mollusks: Because their shells never close completely, whole scallops are especially prone to spoilage, and are therefore almost always shucked immediately after harvest. Many people believe that the creamy and almost translucent scallop offers the most complex flavors and enjoyable texture of any mollusk. In any case, scallops certainly are cooked in more ways than any of their cousins. Some shells are as big as salad plates, with the muscles the size of small dinner rolls; others are the size of a small stack of quarters.
