About Our Live Pink Singing Scallops
First up, let's talk about our famous pink singing scallops. These scallops are known for their vibrant pink color and sweet, delicate flavor. But what sets them apart is their ability to produce a "singing" noise when removed from their shells. This is due to the adductor muscle inside the scallop, which contracts and relaxes rapidly when exposed to air. It's a truly unique and fascinating feature of these scallops.
Beyond their entertainment value, pink singing scallops are also a great source of lean protein, vitamin B12, and omega-3 fatty acids. They are a heart-healthy choice and can help support brain function, among other benefits.
