Wednesday Q&A – 8/10/22

Welcome to the place where your two bloggers ask each other one question each week. We hope you enjoy them as you learn a bit more about us – sometimes we even learn more about each other!

Ray’s question to Karen:

Q: Do you like scallops? If so, do you prefer sea scallops, bay scallops, or do you like them equally?

A: I do love scallops! To be honest, I have no idea what the difference is!

Karen’s Question to Ray:

Q: After answering your question, I feel sort of blissfully ignorant. Can you explain the difference between sea scallops and bay scallops to me besides the obvious?

A: Well, I do need to say the obvious… one is caught in cold bay waters, along the east coast I believe, and the other is caught in cold deep sea waters. Sea scallops are larger and they are the kind most commonly found being served in restaurants. Bay scallops are smaller than sea scallops, about 1/4 to 1/3 the size, and they tend to be a bit more tender and sweeter than sea scallops. I love them both!
