Advices

Scallops can be steamed, fried, or grilled but should be cooked gently and only for a very short time or their delicate flavor and texture will be spoiled. Steam them in wine with aromatics as you would mussels, or wrap them in prosciutto and grill or fry them for a few minutes. Scallops go well with Asian ingredients: try pan-frying them in oil with ginger and fresh coriander. They’re also a good complement to hearty flavors such as bacon, chorizo, black pudding, or watercress. Take care not to over-cook them: serve as soon as they are firm and opaque. 

Nutrition

Scallops are an exceptionally nutrient-dense seafood, providing a concentrated source of high-quality protein. A 3-ounce serving of scallops contains around 20 grams of protein, making them an excellent lean protein choice. In addition to protein, scallops are low in calories and fat while being rich in beneficial vitamins and minerals like vitamin B12, selenium, and zinc. The low calorie and fat content, combined with the abundant protein, make scallops a fantastic option for those looking to incorporate more healthy, lean proteins into their diet. Compared to many other types of seafood, scallops stand out for their exceptional nutritional profile that supports overall health and wellness.
