Category - Scallops

Scallops are one of the most delicate varieties of seafood. However when cooked properly they are melt in the mouth succulent. There are essentially two types. The bigger Sea variety lives in open waters. Whilst the smaller ones, generally known as Bay, are more commonly found in sheltered waters.

There are so many recipes to show off this delight such as Scallops Beurre Blanc and my favourite Linguine with Bacon and Scallops. The easiest way of cooking them is over a high heat nice and fast. They only take about 90 second to sear properly each side. If you want to really impress someone cook Scallops Basil St. Jacques. Another reason to try these is the health benefits. One standard Bay weighing 3 ounces contains 30g of protein and only 92 calories.
