The best scallops will have an opaque, slightly pink or ivory tint and will look almost dry (a sign they have not been soaked). They are meaty, tender, and very sweet. These scallops have never been treated with sodium tripolyphosphate.
Scallops seared perfectly are a thing of beauty, brown and caramelized on the outside and slightly undercooked and moist in the middle. Overcooked they can get dry so they do well in a soup or chowder which helps keep them moist.
