Nantucket Bay Scallops are considered by many gourmets to be the finest of the five eastern species. They are juicier and sweeter than all of the others. Here at Glidden’s, Nantucket Island’s oldest seafood market, we have carefully selected and packed the premium scallops taken from mid-winter’s catch. Due to the icy cold water, these scallops are the plumpest and tastiest. Nantucket Bay Scallops contain about 15% protein by volume, with only 0.7% fat, 140 calories, and 0.7 grams of sodium in a 7 ounce serving. Allow 7 to 8 ounces for a main course and 3 ounces for an appetizer.
To Serve: It’s very important not to overcook scallops! Simply sauté them for 3 to 4 minutes, just heating them through. Scallops are equally delicious served raw with lemon juice.
