  • Anything wrong with SCALLOPS?

    I absolutely LOVE scallops... but have not seen any recipes using scallops. Are they not a primal protein??

    Sure they are. They are shellfish, cook them in butter!
    Integrity is what we do when nobody's watching.

        Scallops are one of my absolute favorites. The thing that gives me pause is that the harvest methods aren't great for bottom habitat (I.e., scallop dredging). On the other hand, they are one of the species that showed pretty quick recovery once georges banks was shut down so they seem somewhat resilient.

                  A few months ago I won a $150 gift certificate for the on-line store Anderson Seafoods. For one glorious week my husband and I pigged out on scallops. Alas, all I can afford now are my memories.

                      i love them but they are expensive and i cant go harvest them in the wild anywhere near me. so for us they are a treat. i usually just fry them in butter or with bacon. or if they are in the shell just steam them in their own juices. the other thing you can do is cook up potatoes or something like cauliflower or sweet potatoes. herbs, garlic, tomatos in a fry pan. try to do it so as the potatoes are precooked so they are sorta wedges and the tomatoes are caramelised. then throw in some fish and when that is almost done, put in the scallops. squeeze lemon juice over it all to serve. we usually do this over a fire at the beach.
                      the other thing is shellfish are a good source of selenium so i try to have some type of shellfish once a week.

                        Frozen scallops are not too bad when fried or dropped into something flavoursome. They tend to be smaller, but they're not at all rubbery; just need cooking through. Fresh scallops can be very lightly cooked.

                        Yeah, all manner of goodness from shellfish - likewise, a couple of times a week: scallops, oysters, mussels, clams, razor clams, all gorgeous and such variety. Beef and shellfish works well in stews, particularly oysters and mussels.
