My beautiful wife brought me home 10 lbs of scallops from work yesterday. She managed to fix them up quite nicely for a little snack.

Scalloper..... How do you make yours.... when I get the jumbos and try to sear, it seems like they're loaded with water. Hard to get a goods sear in them.

You're getting them fresh, which is not what the mid-west has access to... Help Pleae!

By the way, the plate looks delicious!

I have been a commercial fisherman for 33 years. I did own a wholesale seafood company for 21 years. So most likely 95% of the scallops people get are like 95% of the shrimp, they are processed. Commonly shrimp, scallops and even meats like chicken and turkey are soaked or injected with sodium triphosphate or soaked for days as a preservative (STPP). Used to retain moisture. So your adding weight to the product. But with scallops it would be needed to keep them from spoiling. On a boat we shuck and wash the scallops then cool them in a ice bath with only ice and seawater. At the end of the watch we bag up. We put the cooled scallops in essentially a pillow case that holds 50-52 lbs of dry scallops. Buried in ice they keep extremely well. Up to 10 days at least. But mort trips these days are 1-8 days. All Maine scallops are day boat. They leave before daylight and most days they land and sell by 10am- 12pm.
If you have ever had whole shrimp off the boat in the Gulf on Southeast coast and compared them to the shrimp cocktail plates in stores you would understand how the processing process changes everything about the product.

Dang that looks good! Muskrat try Using a bigger pan and add less scallops at a time. The liquid will have more space to disperse and evaporate.
