Frequently Asked Questions
How do I store Clearwater Frozen-at-Sea Scallops?
Clearwater Frozen-at-Sea Argentine Scallops should be stored in your freezer until you are ready to defrost them for use.
What’s the best way to defrost Clearwater Frozen-at-Sea Argentine Scallops for optimum quality?
We recommend that you take the scallops out of the freezer 24 hours before they are needed and place them in a bag in your refrigerator. After the scallops have thawed, place them in a container lined with dry absorbent paper towel or a cloth.
How do I prepare Clearwater Frozen-at-Sea Argentine Scallops?
1) Make sure the scallops are completely thawed – partially frozen scallops will continue to defrost in the pan, creating a pool of water and making it difficult to get a proper sear.
2) Add a neutral flavored cooking oil with a high smoke point, ideally grape seed or avocado (canola or olive oil will also work) to a skillet and place temperature on high until oil is heated.
3) Pat scallops dry with a clean kitchen towel or paper towel to remove any excess moisture.
4) Add scallops to the skillet one at a time, being careful not to overcrowd the cooking surface.
5) Sauté for approximately one minute (depending on size) or until golden brown. Turn scallops and cook to preferred doneness (additional 1 to 2 minutes for medium).

What part of the scallop do we eat?
Scallops are considered bivalves, similar to clams and oysters, having two shells. These two shells are held together by the adductor muscle, which is the part of the scallop we typically eat.
Why are some scallops orange and not white?
Sometimes scallop meat may take on an orange hue, instead of a typically white color, which can be caused by an excess of a natural pigment found in a female scallop. This excess pigment is transferred into the adductor muscle. The quality of the meat and taste is not affected and some people even suggest that these orange colored scallops are more desirable.
