Sea Scallops are the largest commercially available scallops and have a sweet, rich taste. They're among the safest seafoods to eat raw, because they're less susceptible to contamination than other shellfish, mostly because normally only the well-guarded adductor muscle is eaten.
Cooking tips: Though they may be large, Sea Scallops still cook quickly. Recipes often suggest cutting them in half across the grain before cooking, but the large size makes sea scallops a natural for the grill.
