Bay scallops are approx 60-100 per lb. Sold in 2 Lb increments. Wild, Nantucket Island, Massachusetts.
Bay scallops are harvested by fishermen in small boats from the shores and bays using hand dredge and are some of the best in the world.
Scallops are landed live, taken ashore and immediately shucked, often by the fishermen themselves in dockside shucking shanties. Smaller than sea scallops, bays are about the tip of the thumb once shucked (60-100 per lb or 60-100 count).
The meat itself is the abductor muscle of the scallop and has a sweet, mild taste that is unequaled anywhere. Bay scallops can be baked with herbs, wrapped in bacon, skewered and grilled, or battered and deep-fried or lightly pan-seared.
