Scallops

These delicate, fan-shaped bivalves are harvested in the wild and on dedicated farms throughout the Maritime provinces, Newfoundland, Quebec and British Columbia. Scallops are a delectable and long-cherished piece of Canada's diverse seafood tapestry.

With a sweet, creamy taste and a tender, buttery texture, Canadian scallops are a culinary delight. Whether seared to a golden perfection or served in a rich chowder, scallops have an undeniable appeal, and they are easy to add to pasta, soup, and even cocktails.
