We get ours dry packed too, but we dry them out overnight in the refer before we use them if they're going to be pan seared. If not, they don't caramelize properly due to the moisture and the natural sugars. It can be done if we don't have any other scallops in house, but they need to be cooked on a pretty low heat or else they'll burn super quick.

I've had sea scallops, and I agree about the flavor. I've just never seen any that large, and wondered if the bigger ones got tougher.

Sure would love to have a plate of that!

Do you put them on a rack when you dry them out?

Constance, bay and sea scallops have different flavors. To me, bay scallops don't taste anything how a scallop should taste. I love the brinyness and flavor of fresh sea scallops.
i adore scallops but they are over the moon in price here.

You know that that vegetable peeler came from his Barbie playhouse and those scallops are actually just bay scallops

Yeah, otherwise the liquid from the scallops and the condensation will accumulate and the scallops will be sitting in a puddle of water.

No, it's actually from my Dora the Explorer cooking set.
