Wild-caught in the cold, clear waters of the Canadian North Atlantic, Clearwater Sea Scallops are harvested by state-of-the-art factory vessels. Clearwater is Canada’s largest sea scallop quota holder. Vessels harvest in all kinds of weather, ensuring consistent supply 12 months of the year.
Clearwater’s Sea Scallops are shucked and dry frozen on board our factory vessels within an hour of catch, without any additives or chemicals. Freezing-at-sea is the preferred scallop processing method, with independent research showing that frozen-at-sea scallops outperform land-frozen scallops on drip loss, cooked yield, flavor, texture, appearance and shelf life.
Once landed, scallops are graded and packed at Clearwater’s Pierce Fisheries processing facility in Lockeport, Nova Scotia.
Along with exceptional flavor and quality, wild seafood is also recognized as a healthy choice.

How to Sear the Perfect Scallop
Thaw scallops overnight. Once thawed, pat dry with a towel. Then, season with salt and pepper.
Heat a flavourless, high smoke-point oil such as grapeseed oil in a pan over medium heat for 1 – 2 minutes. Place scallops counterclockwise individually in pan. Do not overcrowd.
Carefully sear scallops on one side for approximately 2 minutes or until they begin to brown. Allow to sear thoroughly before turning. Flip them over in the same counterclockwise order.
Sear for another minute. Remove pan from heat. Let scallops rest in hot pan for another minute to cook through.
How do I store Clearwater Frozen-at-Sea Scallops?
Clearwater Frozen-at-Sea 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 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 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 flavoured 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 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.
