Scallops Roe Off
100.00 AED – 120.00 AED
This is the bi-valve shellfish with a flat, fanned bottom shell and domed fan shaped upper shell. There are essentially two types. The bigger Sea scallop lives in open waters and the smaller ones, generally known as Bay scallops, are more commonly found in sheltered waters. The Isle of Man’s Queenie scallop is a variety of the latter.
Found all round the world, the major, cylindrical adductor muscle of all scallops is naturally sweet, tender and delicate in flavour. The orange (female) or grey-pink (male) shape attached is known as the coral and the roe or milt sacs. These have a more robust flavour and are often removed for sale but the combination of the two makes a very attractive presentation.
