Whatever the type of scallops, I like the breaded and fried.

The best I ever had was at Digby Nova Scotia which is I suppose the capital of scallop fishing.

I went down to the docks and ask for some scallops. The fisherman replied that they do not sell them ther but if you go to Franks Scallops up the street, you can get them there, so I went there. Frank said what do you want and I said scallops. He said that will be five bucks. I paid him and about five minutes later he brought me enough scallops to last the entire day. Great, huge and tasty.

I enjoy scallops, both sea and bay, a number of different ways. I'd have to say my very favorite way is sauteed in olive oil and butter with garlic, a squeeze of lemon and some freshly ground black pepper. Then it would be ceviche. Growing up, though, my favorite was deep fried bay scallops at a placed called Chello's in Guilford, Connecticut.

I am with you there, sir. For the former, I like to sear them enough to create a beautiful brown glaze top and bottom. It is very important not to overcook them as you well know. Maybe a little fresh parsley sprinkled on top. I guess though that any scallop is delicous properly cooked and/or uncooked!

My mom taught me a seafood 'sauce' that is absolutely wonderful with any mild seafood. By mild I mean "having subtle flavor" (or "not fishy" :)) Good fresh scallops definitely fall into this category.

The general idea is:

stick of butter
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
15-20 capers (you can do without these if you have to, but they add a lot)

This is not an exact recipe but should get you close. You want to put all the ingredients in a sauce pan (or the saute pan you are cooking in) and gently warm until the butter is melted. The bottom line as far as heat goes is not so hot as to separate the butter.

I normally use this to baste fish that I am broiling. If I had some scallops, I would simmer them in this mixture until done and spoon the sauce over the scallops after plating. If these are good fresh scallops, you should err on the side of underdone(like good shrimp).

I suggested this for scallops, but I think you'll really like this with broiled fish too. My mom broiled flounder with this when I was growing up in NWFL. I use it when cooking the awesome Cod fillets that are available to me up here in New England.

When the scallops are fresh, nothing is better and I'll eat them in all the ways listed above. For special occasions, I like to make Coquilles St. Jacques. Sometimes I add some crabmeat but then, I suppose, it wouldn't be Coquilles St. Jacques. -pb

I like scallops too and usually sautee them like Michael Hoffman described. Sometimes I bake them like this:

SEASONED SCALLOPS

1 Tbs. olive oil
2 Tbs. melted butter
2 Tbs. lemon juice
1/ 4 cup packaged breadcrumbs
3 Tbs. grated parmesan cheese
1 clove finely minced garlic
2 tsp. finely minced fresh parsley
1 /2 tsp. salt
1/ 4 tsp. pepper
1 pound sea scallops

Mix oil and butter in a shallow baking dish (I use a glass pie plate). Add remaining ingredients except scallops and mix. Add scallops; toss to coat with mixture. Bake uncovered, at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until scallops are done.

My favorite way to make bay scallops is this salad. Sometimes I make it the night before and take to work for lunch (pack greens in a separate baggie or container so they don'e get soggy).

MARGARITA SCALLOP SALAD

3 Tbs. fresh lime juice, divided
2 Tbs. minced fresh parsley
1 Tbs. minced fresh basil (or 1 tsp. dried basil)
1 pound sea scallops
1/ 4 cup chicken broth
2 Tbs. olive oil
1/ 4 cup fresh orange juice
1 Tbs. tequila
1/ 4 tsp. salt
1/ 4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
1 1/ 2 cups cherry or pear tomatoes, halved
1/ 2 sweet onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 cup thinly sliced cucumber
1 1/ 2 cups fresh corn kernels (or frozen corn kernels, thawed)
2 cups mixed salad greens

In a bowl, combine 2 Tbs. of the lime juice, the parsley and basil. Add the scallops, tossing to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine remaining 1 Tbs. lime juice, broth, oil, orange juice, tequila, salt and pepper. Add the tomatoes, onion, cucumber and corn, tossing to coat. Preheat the grill. Thread the scallops on 8 skewers. Spray the rack – off the grill- with nonstick cooking spray. Place the skewers on the rack, cover and grill at medium, or 6 inches from the heat, turning once, for 4 to 6 minutes, or until the scallops are just opaque throughout. Place tomato mixture on top of greens and then top with scallops. Serves 4.
Note: If using fresh corn, I usually blanch it first.

Peconic Bay, in between the fancy South Fork and the getting fancy North Fork of LOOOOOOOOOONG Island
NY in noted for it's scallops. When I was younger, a long time ago,(you may be still able to) you could drive up to the platform of the wholesalers warehouse just outside Greenport and buy scallops right out of the bay. There was a little 3 or 4 seat shed on the parking lot that served 'em sauted in butter and oil while listening to music of the big bands, on tape----BYOB and no dancing allowed (they didn't have a cabaret licence).

The scallops were fantastic and as Mr Hogbody says----they taste like the sea to me too, especially when you are looking at the bay and smelling the salt air. Bon Apetit Julia, RIP.

I've found that many times what resraurants and stores sell as scallops really aren't scallops. How do you tell the difference between the real and the imitation scallops without tasting them??

This is from the New York Seafood Council:

Q: Are skates really used to make "imitation" scallops?

A: The long-held myth that skate wings are often cut into pieces to be sold as scallops is one of those "believe it or not" stories that was never a common practice. The unusual bands of muscle fibers in skate wings would make it very difficult to produce a product that remotely resembles a scallop. In addition, this process would probably be so labor intensive that the resulting product could make the product cost almost as much as the real scallop that it was intended to imitate. Although the myth is untrue, it does pay homage to the sweet and appealing shellfish-like taste of skate.

I've started using orange juice squeezed over the bay scallops to finish them...the sweetness and acidity is interesting.

For diver scallops...quickly seared or grilled.

As a kid I liked scallops best the way I first had them. Deep fried, preferably plate after plate at the annual scallop festival in New Bedford. Of course, at home we just broiled them with butter and drizzled a little butter on them. That worked, too.

Now, we have two regular scallop dishes. One is in a cream sauce with mushrooms and leeks. It's sort of a version of Coquille St. Jacques but we like it over rice rather than served in a shell.

Our other return-to scallop dish is scallops in Thai red curry, usually with some snow peas and water chestnuts, although the veggies can vary.

A third dish we don't make as often any longer is seafood risotto, which we typically make with just mussels and scallops.

Of course, a fried scallop roll at any good clam shack works, too.

Definitely the classic recipe, Coquilles St. Jacque


Coquilles St. Jacque

INGREDIENTS
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
5 tablespoons melted butter
6 ounces shredded Gruyere cheese
3/4 cup sour cream
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
1 pound sea scallops, quartered
1/2 pound button mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup finely chopped onion

DIRECTIONS
1. In small mixing bowl, toss the bread crumbs with 1 tablespoon of melted butter; mix thoroughly and set aside.

2. In another small bowl, combine the cheese, mayonnaise/sour cream, wine and parsley; mix thoroughly and set aside.

3. In a skillet over medium heat, saute scallops in 2 tablespoons of melted butter until opaque. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Preheat broiler for medium/high heat.

4. Reheat the skillet over medium heat and cook the mushrooms and onion in 2 tablespoons of melted butter until tender. Add cheese mixture and return the scallops to the skillet. Cook until heated through and the cheese is melted. Spoon the mixture into individual ramekins or pour the whole mixture into a 11x7 inch baking dish. Sprinkle the top with bread crumb mixture.

5. Broil in a preheated broiler 6 inches from heat for 2 to 4 minutes or until browned.


When I used to serve it at the restaurant, I added partially cooked broccoli florets as well. This was at the restaurant P.J. Clarkes in Birmingham, MI in the 1970's... the broccoli idea came from our New York P.J. Clarkes location.

Re porkbeaks. I have been told by old time fishermen in both Maine and Massachusetts, that 'tongues and sounds'(flesh near the gills) is frequently sustituted for scallops. A good way to tell is size. Anything that looks too consistent with no individual variation or a less than creamy taste is probably fake. You want a mild flavor, not too chewy or overpowering.
Fried with a cold beer and a warm sunny deck overlooking the water. can you tell it's cold here today?

I've always thought of scallops as my favorite seafood, but it wasn't until the middle 1980s that I knew just how wonderful scallops could be. I was at a (sadly now out of business) sushi bar on Peachtree in Atlanta (only my second time eating sushi, taken there by a girlfriend of mine who had lived in Japan), and she decided I was ready for sashimi (the fish alone, without the sushi rice). I placed this large white round raw object on my tongue, and my mouth was immediately filled with sweet warmness that didn't even require any mastication--it all but DISSOLVED in my mouth. "What was that?", I heard myself say, and received the reply, "A Scallop." Unbelievable. Fabulous.

Since that time, ordering all kinds of scallops (cooked or raw) in all kinds of establishments, I have never found one that duplicates--or even approaches--that wonderful experience. I would heartily recommend that if you ever have the opportunity to eat a raw--and VERY fresh--scallop, you do so. I still, some 25 years later, remember that moment as if it were this morning. Pure oral beauty.

Having said that, my favorite "quickie" seviche recipe is really simple; I usually use sea scallops, but it works equally well with bay scallops. Red pepper flakes to taste, Rose's lime juice to cover, let it set in the 'fridge for a few hours and chow down!

I can't think of ANY recipe that uses Scallops as a main ingredient that I don't like. Broiled, Battered and deep fried, 'Kebobs on a grill", raw in a seafood salad, Scampi, and I think my favorite was the "Imperial". Served In a butter cream sauce, sometimes with shrimp and or crab mixed in with the scallops... a very very rich dish, so far I have only found it on menus in the Tidewater Virginia area. Not even sure if I have the name correct. It is absolutely the best seafood 'in sauce' dish I have ever enjoyed.

I like to press diver scallops top and bottom in a little brown sugar and pepper combination and pan fry each side until it develops a brown crust (doesn't take too long either). Accompanied with some rice or a risotto, a Gorgonzola and pear salad and some crusty sourdough, I'm set for my last meal.

OK, If you are one of those who are opposed to the step-by-step recipe with photos, you may want to scroll on down thru this one.

On a Costco trip this morning We picked up some Lamb Ribs, a carrot cake, and some other treats and special stuff for the Easter dinner that will happen tomorrow. While at Costco we happened across some fresh Scallops for $8.00 a pound. Well, we had to have two pounds to try a coconut batter mix that we have had for awhile. The results were pretty good. We limited the menu to some fresh Asparagus and the Coconut battered Scallops.

Here is step 1.. The Batter mix, One bottle of Beer, and two eggs mixed in formed the batter. Scallops rinsed and drained were then ready to go.



Step 2- Blanche/ Semi-Cook (al dente) the Asparagus to prep it for the oven treatment- cover with Parmesean cheese, then oven-bake it until the cheese browns a bit.



Step 3- Put the scallops that have been covered in the batter into a hot frying pan with about half to three-quarters of an inch of hot oil. Fry until golden brown.



Here is dinner for TWO- in fact we found that there were more scallops than we could eat at one meal. Due to the large size our usual 5 or 6 for a serving could well have been 3 or 4 !



Here is the finished product. I love both the Scallops and the Asparagus, so this dinner made me a very happy camper !! We will save some of the leftover scallops to add to some chowder shortly!


All in all a pretty good Costco Day.

Yeah, before we got a Costco here in Louisville (last fall) we would load up the coolers and do a JJ and Costco run about once a month. We didn't save a dime...with it being a roundt-trip of about 225 miles, the gas cost were pretty high. We haven't been to Jungle Jims since we started using the local Costco!

The batter mix needed some additional flavoring...It was a bit "plain". Next time we will either use some Orange marmalade or other slightly sweet/sour citrus to add a bit of 'Tang' to the batter. It was good, but lacked that final touch.
I watched Bobby Fray do some Scallops on the grill this morning. If it wasn't 25 degrees out when I watched that i would have been tempted to do the same. My days of grilling in the snow are happily behind me somewhere!!
