Availability: In stock
All harvesting, processing and packaging operations comply with the New Zealand government, USFDA and EU standards.
Preparation: Rinse the frozen scallops under running water. Place in a large pot with 1/4 cup of water, cover tightly, then steam over high heat until the shells are open. This only takes a few minutes. Shake the pot or move the shells around with a wooden spoon once or twice during cooking.
When all are open, set the scallops aside and keep the juices. Remove the scallops from their shells, discarding the black digestive gland. Rinse the scallop meats very briefly under the tap.
The scallops can either be reheated in the strained juices, but never boiled, and served immediately, or prepared according to a recipe.
Availability: Available year round.
Shelf life: Frozen scallops are at their best when consumed within three months. They do not require thawing before cooking.
Fish for your health: Shellfish provides an excellent source of Omega 3, an essential fatty acid which helps in lowering blood cholesterol and maintaining a healthy circulatory system.
Suggested Wines: Try matching the richness to your dish eg chardonnay, a smooth Italian white or for contrast a crisp Sauvignon.
