Wild Alaska Weathervane Scallops on the Grill
Cooking Scallops from Frozen
Our wild caught scallops are frozen fresh to preserve their taste and texture. Pull a recipe ready portion of scallops from your freezer and leave them on the counter to thaw. If you are looking to thaw your scallops from frozen more quickly, submerge the vacuumed sealed package under water until the scallops are fully thawed.
PRO TIP FOR SCALLOP SKEWERS! They are easier to skewer when slightly frozen. 😉 🧊
