scallops again

The local store where I buy fish has had huge scallops on sale for $7.99/lb. So I wrapped some in prosciutto and grilled them tonight. I put a beer bottle in the pic so you could see that these really are hockey puck sized scallops. Except hockey pucks are thinner.

That is the kind of food I would expect to eat if I were to visit Alaska. Looks very good.

Wow. The ones you grilled this summer were some of the best I've ever eaten.



These are just plain astonishing!

Waz them scallops ...or stamped and cut fish cheeks?

Could you identify the scallop rings in each scallop...or was it just a consistent texture to the meat?

Last time I got scallops that big, they waz fish cheek meat....... almost near as good tasting as a scallop... but they shouldn't carry the same price.

Joe, they were scallops. Trust me on this one. Several times when I was in Yakutat, Alaska I was lucky enough to buy fresh scallops off a dragger just in from the Gulf of Alaska and I know scallops when I see one. They do get that big. Also, halibut cheecks are one of my favorites and they have a different texture than scallops.
