Do you know why some scallops are pink/orange?
These are the female scallops during their spawn. Their orange-colored eggs tint the adductor muscle – the part of the scallop we eat. If you notice color variation next time you get scallops, this is why!
Our scallops are always fresh off of a day boat, meaning that the boat fished a single-day trip. This ensures that the scallops are always unloaded off the boat the same day they are caught, where they then make their way to us. Other scallops are caught on “trip boats” – meaning that the boats are fishing for many days or even weeks at a time, and those scallops have to be chemically processed when they reach the dock due to their age.
Come taste the difference! Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to get a pink one (we think they are the sweetest!)
