Scallops: Picking and Preparing Them Like a Pro
If you are interested in scallop recipes, one of the first things you will need to know is how to pick the right scallops for your scallop recipes. The smell of the scallops is a good indicator of the freshness of the scallops. If the scallops smell strongly, do not purchase them. They should have a slight sea smell, but they should not smell fishy. The stronger they smell, the more likely they are not fresh.
