What are wet scallops?
Wet scallops are treated with a solution of water and sodium tripolyphosphate to help preserve them. I highly recommend using dry scallops because they are far superior, taste sweet, and caramelize perfectly.
Should I use sea scallops or bay scallops?
I highly recommend using sea scallops for this recipe. Bay scallops are typically used for pasta and soups, not main dishes like this one.
Can I use frozen scallops?
You can, just make sure to completely thaw them.
Place leftovers in an air-tight container and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
