Sea scallops are bivalve mollusks that live in the waters off the North Eastern coast of the U.S. and Canada as well as Japan. These are the larger of the two common types of scallops found in the U.S. The sea scallop averages about 1 1/2" wide. This shellfish should be lightly cooked because overcooking will make the flesh rubbery.
Find sea scallops in most well stocked grocery stores fresh or fresh frozen.
