Bay Scallops are mild and sweet with a slightly nutty finish. The texture is tender and delicate, but durable enough not to break apart during cooking. The complexity of the flavor in Bay scallops is greater than it is in its more expensive and popular cousin, the Sea scallop. Our Bay scallops are imported from Mexico because the quality is incredible and the environmental impact minimal.
