Scallops

North Atlantic Scallops, caught from ocean beds 60’-360’ under the surface, measure an average 1.5” in diameter.  On the boat, our crew shuck the adductor muscle or the plump meat from the shell instantly for a fresh catch.  Most scallops appear creamy white with a few “blushing” scallops that have a tint of orange to them.  It all depends on their diet, but these scallops sear into a clean, buttery taste!  Eat with assurance.  About 6 sea scallops contain about 25 grams of protein and 14% of the daily needed iron.  Consider lightly seasoning your fresh catch from Chesapeake Crab Co. with Old Bay and place in a hot skillet lightly drizzled with olive oil.  Keep your eye on the scallops and flip after about two minutes and sear another two on the other side.  Once the translucence turns white and a golden-brown searing shows, place the scallops on a paper towel to soak up excess oil and the plate.  Enjoy the jewels of the sea!
