scallops

IMG_5444_convert_20140515175305.jpg

My friend came to my place and gave me a lot of fresh scallops with shells yesterday. I said "Thank you very much! I love them." Then as soon as she got home, she came here again bringing some other boiled scallops. She said she knew I love them, so she brought more. I thanked her again and I was very happy.
Fortunately I was going to make seafood bowls for supper last night and I already bought some kinds of seafood, but I didn't buy any scallops then.

Some of fresh scallops were moving and the shells were sometimes opening and closing. At first we had some of them with raw. They were a little sweet and so delicious. And then I boiled the others.

She told me how to boil them.
At first, wash them with water. Then put them with shells in a large pot and add some water covered them. And boiled untill the shells open. Then drain the hot water. You can remove the scallops from the shells easily after boiled. Finally you should remove a black part from the scallop.

The way of boiling scallops is smillar to clam ones. I didn't know that. The seafood bowl became better because of adding delicious scallops last night.
I'll cook gratin with the boiled scallops next time!

Those look fantastic. I've only had scollops once. It was a long time ago.

On TV last night, they called the black part a "beard." As in "remove the scollops beard." I thought it was funny.

Yesterday, a friend came to my place and gave me a lot of fresh *unshucked scallops. I said, "Thank you very much, I love them!" Then, as soon as she got home, she packed some boiled scallops and came over once again, and then gave them to me. She said she knew I loved them, so she brought me more. I thanked her again. I was very happy, not just to have more of the delicious scallops, but because of her thoughtfulness and kindness.

* In this instance, as there is an actual process to remove the meat from the shells of Oysters or Clams (among other things) called "shucking"...and since there is little difference among Clams, Oysters and Scallops, and as the process is essentially the same, unshucked would apply. You could also say, "scallops in the shell."

I had planned to make a basic seafood stew for supper last night. Although I had already bought the necessary ingredients to make a basic stew, I had not bought any scallops. How fortunate I was when my friend had gifted me with the many scallops I would need to make the seafood stew even more delicious.

As I was preparing supper, I could sometimes see the scallops opening and closing their shells and moving about. We ate some of them raw. They were slightly sweet and ever so delicious. I then boiled the others so I could put them in the stew.

My friend had told me how to boil scallops (it is similar to boiling clams). You must first rinse them in water. You then place them, shell and all, in a large pot with enough water to ensure they remain submerged throughout the cooking process. You boil them until the shells open, drain the hot water, and then remove the meat from the shells. The meat should separate from the shells easily once they are fully cooked. Finally, you should remove the black edging of the scallop and rinse the trimmed scallops in clean water to ensure there are no sand particles or any black edging left on the meat.

Last night's seafood stew had become even more delicious with the inclusion of the scallops.

*If you are using the same boiled scallops, but will have some left over after cooking the Gratin:

Next time, I'll cook Gratin with some of the boiled scallops.


*If you are using the same boiled scallops, but you are going to finish off the scallops:

Next time, I'll cook Gratin with the remainder of the boiled scallops.


*If you aren't using the scallops you had already boiled:

Next time, I'll cook Gratin with boiled scallops.

Hi, Always visiting.

Speaking of a beard, it looks like a beard. That's interesting.
I'd like to serve scallops dishes to you someday.
Thanks for your comment.

Re: English Corrections

Hi, shiroi tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.

I didn't know that you can say 'meat' as even seafood.
Well, actually I didn't make a seafood stew. I made 'Kaisen Don' in Japanese, which is that some kinds of raw seafood on sushi rice which tastes sour in a bowl.

Ah...I stand corrected. I should have realized. When I was in Osaka, there was a restaurant chain called Chicken Bowl. Seafood Bowl it is :)
