Did you know that the beauty of scallops shells is a worldwide recognition? Images of scallop shells are familiar in adornments of stamps, family crests, and other mundane signs. These shells are from any of the 350 species of scallops.
Scallops are, however, beneficial for more than just their beauty. They are an abundant source of nutrients and are exceptionally high in proteins and vitamin B12. Alaska Scallops have Omega 3 fatty acids, potassium, and magnesium. Additionally, the fish species also have a rich content of Zinc, Calcium, Copper, and Selenium.
Origin of Scallops
The Alaskan Scallop has a vibrant growth in Cape Spencer in the southwest of Alaska and the north of Unimak Island. The historical harvest of the fish was at its highest in the ’70s and reached a long-term harvest period between 1993 and 2014.
Tanner’s Alaskan seafood continues to reap from the abundant seas of the region to serve its customers with the freshest and best quality of Scallops. You can buy a pound of wild scallops at averagely $29 for each variation. You can also enjoy a monthly subscription of shellfish at $299 or a ready meal of four at not more than $299.95.
What to expect while buying Scallops
Our store has one the fastest and most convenient shipping arrangements. You can order the fish and only wait a night for it to be at your doorstep. Seemingly, you will be able to enjoy a sumptuous lunch of scallops by ordering any of the scallop species on the site. Scallops are excellent for many different dishes, including appetizers and main courses.
You can buy wet or dry scallops, which vary according to the packaging method. Wet scallops have chemicals and salt additives that make the fish appear more massive than their usual size. The size will, however, shrink after cooking and hence make it difficult to sear. Dry scallops have minimal storage settings and chemical treatments.
We sell the meaty part of the Scallop because it is the most edible one. Additionally, processing the fish reduces their limited shelf life.
Best cooking methods for Alaska Scallop
- Begin by thawing all your weathervane scallops at the same time if you plan to cook them. Remove them from the packaging to allow airflow that prevents the growth of bacteria. Place the scallops in the fridge for a couple of hours before you begin cooking so they can regain a more normal state.
- Pat the scallop down with a wet paper towel to remove excess moisture
- Place and turn the Scallop on each side on a hot pan until the top and bottom turn brown and become caramelized.
- Scallops tend to have a rich natural flavor and can taste amazing with the least amount of ingredients.
