Frozen Scallop Meat x 1kg Available to Order
Description Delivery

Frozen scallops are cheaper than fresh for a couple of reasons. Scallops can only be harvested in relatively good weather especially in the summer. The market price can drop somewhat so the fishermen sell them to factories that freeze them and sell them when they are scarce. Frozen scallops absorb water during this process which drips away when defrosting. Frozen scallops are usually heavily glazed to 'protect' them from burning over a long period in the cold store. Defrosted scallop meat can lose up to 40% of its frozen weight! Fresh is best with scallops hence the big price difference. We offer here the giant 'King' well as the smaller, some say sweeter, queen scallops which are roeless and sold in a 1lb bag at just £7.00.

We will pack your order in poly boxes with either gelpacks (fresh) or dry ice (frozen) so the temperature is maintained.If you order fresh and frozen seafood then you will receive 2 boxes. Should you order just a small amount of frozen we may pack this with the fresh. All fresh seafood is subject to availability.
