Introduction to Cooking with Live Pink Sea Scallops
Fresh live pink sea scallops are a true delicacy, prized for their tender meat and sweet, briny flavor. If you're lucky enough to have some on hand, you might be wondering how to prepare them at home. Fortunately, these scallops are easy to work with and require minimal preparation. Whether you're looking for a light appetizer or a main course, our pink scallops are sure to impress. Follow these simple steps to get started.
Preparation Suggestions and Easy Meal Ideas
To prepare live pink sea scallops, you have two options: steam them or serve them raw. If you choose to steam them, simply place them in a steamer basket over simmering water and cook for 3-4 minutes, or until they're opaque and just cooked through. You can then eat the whole meat inside, as these scallops don't require cleaning from the muscle like traditional fresh in-shell scallops.
Alternatively, you can shuck the scallops and serve them raw. To do this, use a sharp knife to open the shell and carefully remove the meat. Discard the guts and rinse the meat under cold water. Arrange the scallops on a platter, squeeze some fresh lime juice over them, and serve immediately. Raw scallops are a great way to showcase their delicate flavor and texture, and they pair well with a variety of sauces and garnishes.
