Scallops - Canadian deep sea scallops

The Canadian deep-sea scallops, commonly known as wild-caught scallops, are sourced from Nova Scotia, Canada. They contain no chemical additives and are shock-frozen at -40°C on the fishing boat within a maximum of 20 minutes after being caught. The abundance of scallops in Atlantic Canada is attributed to their healthy population and sustainably managed, quota-controlled fishing. These scallops are True Count, meaning they are not soaked in water, contrary to common practice, and are only sprayed with a protective layer of water after weighing.

Tasty and juicy – ​​scallops are sweet delicacies from the sea and have many uses in the kitchen. Because our scallops are processed quickly immediately after being caught, both their special aroma and their natural texture are completely preserved. 1. BAKING Defrost the scallops gently in the refrigerator or individually at room temperature. Scallops should be dried well before preparation, otherwise they will become watery and therefore will not produce any roasted aromas. However, this is more relevant when preparing it in the pan. Place the prepared scallops in real scallop shells or small porcelain bowls. Mix a paste of dry white bread, white wine, salt, pepper, diced tomatoes, diced garlic and olive oil. Pour this mixture onto the scallops and gratinate them with Parmesan cheese in the oven at top heat. 2. FRIED Fry the gently thawed and as well dried scallops as possible on both sides in a hot, coated pan in heat-resistant oil. At best, a golden brown crust will develop. At the end of the frying process, add some butter, garlic and thyme. Then toss the mussels in the pan and finally deglaze them with a dash of white wine and a little lemon juice.
