Having Weathervane scallops delivered to your door is an easy way to ensure a delicious, simple meal. These white, solid, sweet, and buttery Alaska Weathervane Scallops are harvested and processed on board Jim Stone’s catcher and processor. The creamy white and pink shellfish have a sweet, mild taste. These scallops are shucked and frozen within minutes of being caught, locking in their naturally fresh and sweet flavor. Our weathervane scallops are available in 20-ounce bags.
The Weathervane fishery is the exemplary model for sustainable scallop harvesting. The fishing grounds are closely monitored and regulated, and they are moved annually to protect the habitat. The Marine Stewardship Council has certified Weathervane as a green fishery.
Tips for Preparing Scallops
Scallops are a popular appetizer, but the versatile seafood works well in a variety of dishes. Weathervane scallops have a sweet, mild flavor, which means we don’t recommend overwhelming the fish with too many ingredients. To make the most of their delicate flavor, quickly pan sear them until they are browned and lightly crusted on the outside. The middle should remain tender. To better taste their natural flavor, serve with a lightly flavored sauce, like white wine, herb, or lemon-butter.
Of course, many scallop preparations include more decadent ingredients. Bacon-wrapped scallops are famous party appetizers, and brown sugar glazes are becoming increasingly popular. This is a very adaptable seafood, which means it can be prepared to suit nearly any taste.
If you have Weathervane scallops delivered from Lummi Island Wild, we want to caution you against overcooking. Scallops have a tendency to get tough and rubbery if exposed to too much heat. Just keep an eye on the burner and on your clock and you should be all set.
Handling Instructions – Weathervane Scallops
The Weathervane scallops delivered from Lummi Island Wild are frozen together in one solid 1.25 lb block. This helps to preserve the shellfish’s texture and flavor during the shipping process. No water or preservatives added. If you want to enjoy the scallops when they arrive, let them thaw before cooking. If you prefer to wait, they will remain good to eat in your freezer for up to three months.

Scallops were delicious, sweet, tender, and, best of all, fresh. I cooked them in a pan with butter, and they were perfect.

Ordered these for a celebratory meal.
Thawed per direction.
Cooked up following Serious Eats recipe by J Kenji Lopez Alt.
Served with a grilled fresh corn and tomato salad.
I agree with previous review that one large package was inconvenient.
But no complaints from the wife about eating scallops for 3 days in a row!

My brother-in-law gifted us a box from Lummi that included scallops. I prepared them lightly salted on a water soaked cedar plank over a 500º charcoal fire with the grill cover closed. No direct heat. Probably 6 to 8 min max depending on your grill characteristics. The scallops acquired a very light smoke patina and I took them off the plank when I could see the moisture starting to boil out forming a little moisture at the base of each scallop. I transferred the scallops with tongs to an ovenproof plate that was warming on the grill shelf. Had prepared a sauce of 3T minced shallots sautéed in 3T butter until the butter just started to brown and shallots to caramelize. Added 1 T flour and simmered stirring. Added 1 1/2 C white wine, a packet of chicken stock reduction, 3t lemon juice, 1t maple syrup and salt and pepper. Set aside and reheated to serve. Served on a bed of steamed rice and sautéed spinach. I could eat that EVERY night. As everyone says, Best Scallops Ever. Thanks Bruce!

just about as delicious as one can imagine. I will always buy from LIWild–simple to make the scallops, on their own or in pasta, chiopino or whatever you like

Love these! There are so tender and sweet. I cooked them in butter with salt and pepper and served them with lemon butter pasta. The rest of my scallops went into a wonderful seafood chowder. I will place another soon. Thanks for a great product.

I bought a bag of scallops. I treated my husband to pan seared scallops with butter and garlic one night – they were delicious. I used the remainder of the bag in a cioppino, with salmon, cod and shrimp as the other seafood ingredients, and served it with homemade focaccia. It was exceptionally good – one of the best things I’ve cooked. My husband declared it restaurant quality.
I used the recipe from the Epicurious website. Easy, but very, very good.

These are hands down the best scallops I have ever had. Took a couple days for the order to process but once it did I had the scallops in hand in under 24 hours.
Marinated them in olive oil and fresh crushed garlic for about 30 minutes, and put them in a carbon steel pan on a charcoal grill… absolutely fantastic! Not a single bit of grit or sand in any of them. Will definitely order again!!

The scallops arrived on time, and the day you said. I am grateful for the order being monitored so closely. They cooked up so simply – fried in butter with fresh lemon juice. The flavor was exceptional. Mild, buttery, and no hint of delayed processing after being caught. Good job done for all who were involved from start to finish!
It would be nice to be able to order single bags instead of having to purchase two at a time. For a single household the amount of product is more than we care to eat in one sitting. The other bag is in the freezer of course, but I would rather order one at a time.

The Scallops were excellent. the only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is that I’d prefer if if they were packaged in smaller portions so you don’t have to defrost the whole pound in a half.
Otherwise, love them and may reorder.

Extremely happy with our order and the taste is something you have to experience for yourself, they are absolutely amazing.

Cindy W Johnson (verified owner) –
These were wonderful! So quick and easy but delicious and healthy. They need only real butter, salt and pepper. We’ve had them with pasta and on fresh greens as a salad. We will certainly order again!

I love these scallops!!! They’re sweet and tender – I cooked them in butter in a fry pan, quick and easy yet so, so delicious. Plus I appreciate greatly the care for sustainability that Lummi Island Wild demonstrates in procuring their seafood – you can’t get this in grocery store products. And last but not least, there was a problem with my shipment and immediately upon being notified, Lummi Island Wild took care of it, i. e. they stand by their product 100% which was a great relief to me. Whenever i feel like splurging again, buying these scallops will be high on my list of choices! Thank you Lummi Island Wild crew!!!
