Martha’s Vineyard Bay Scallops
Bay scallops are a limited seasonal delicacy harvested by fishermen in small boats from the shores and bays using hand dredges. Bay Scallops are landed live, taken ashore and immediately shucked, often by the fishermen themselves in dockside shucking shanties.
Smaller than sea scallops, Bay Scallops are about the size of the tip of the thumb once shucked (60-100 per lb). 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.
Bay Scallops are Approximately 60-100 per Lb. Sold in 2 Lb increments. Wild, Martha’s Vineyard Island, Massachusetts.
