Nothing compares to dry sea scallops. The texture is buttery and firm with a rich and sweet ocean flavor. Available year-round, sea scallops are a low-fat source of protein and B vitamins. Live scallops are a delicacy.

Sashimi grade. Shuck and eat the scallop muscle and roe. Great broiled with butter and served on the shell. 1 portion is approx. 16 oz. We recommend 8 oz per person.

A nice hard sear is the classic method. Will also broil very nicely. Also consider slicing or dicing for sushi/ceviche preparations.
Basic is best: salt, pepper, lemon, butter. Will hold up to more flavor than a bay scallop.
Classic Sear: pat dry your scallops, season with salt and pepper, then using a very hot pan, add a tablespoon and a half of oil and heat it until it smokes. Put the scallops in and try not to move them until you can see that they have a nice brown sear. Flip them and turn heat to low. Add butter and cook until it has melted and a nice sauce has formed in the pan. Add lemon juice, baste, and serve.



Fair Trade

Red’s Best unloads from scallop boats directly. Getting Red’s Best Sea Scallops from dayboats is very important because some of the bigger boats go out for weeks at a time. Once the captain finds the scallops, the profitability of the boat often comes down to the shucking skills of the crew. This requires strong, quick hands, and experience with a knife.
