Frozen 113g packs of wild, smoked swimming scallops. Caught in 2020 off Quadra Island. Approximately 25-40 scallops per pack.
Naturally cold smoked and ready to eat, these are great on their own, as an appetizer, in a salad or heated in a pasta dish.
Swimming scallops have "a more complex flavour than sea scallops on the East Coast, are less aggressively sweet and they are balanced by a pleasant, oyster-like brininess as well as a nutty flavour usually associated with clam." according to WA-state writer Susan Herrmann Loomis
Caught live by local fisherman Joel Collier, he and Melissa founded West Coast Wild Scallops to help promote this Ocean Wise-recommended local wild product.
Fished by butterfly trawl, specifically designed for this fishery, that does not damage the ocean bottom like east coast scallop. Bycatch is next to nil, consisting of animals like sea stars and urchins that are returned unharmed.
