This is as fresh as you're gonna get them...

Scallops are one of my favorite foods, and it's obvious from my posts that I like to work with them a lot. Here are the scallops that we use in the restaurant. These are true dayboat scallops and the ones I love to sear and serve rare to medium rare to capture their sweet flavor. You can read more about them here.

Yeah, as far as I know. Whole Foods might carry them, but I'm not sure.

We have a hard time finding dry sea scallops here in the 'burbs. When we do, we grab them up and have them for dinner that night.
