Weathervane scallops are popular for a reason: They taste really, really good. Harvested in ice-cold Alaskan waters, these are some of the sweetest scallops money can buy. Also known as the Giant Pacific Scallop, this shellfish is easy to cook, it has a versatile flavor, and it stores well in the freezer. Plus, we make Weathervane scallops delivery easy. If you want to get shellfish delivered, look no further than Lummi Island Wild. Our shellfish delivery is the best available.
How Does Our Weathervane Scallops Delivery Work?
The Weathervane scallops delivery from Lummi Island Wild is simple. The shellfish is shipped frozen in a 20-ounce bag. This large bag ensures there is enough meat for between 5 to 6 servings, depending on how hungry your diners are. Freezing shellfish immediately after shucking helps to preserve the natural flavor and texture. Once cooked, these scallops will taste like they were just pulled from the ocean.
If you want to enjoy your scallops they night they arrive, allow the bag to thaw on your counter or in the refrigerator. Then, toss them in a pan with some oil and let the heat do its job. If you want to save your scallops for a different day, you can safely store your purchase in the freezer for up to three months.
All About Our Scallops
Our Alaska Weathervane Scallops are harvested by Jim Stone’s catcher. To preserve the shellfish’s texture and flavor, they are processed and frozen aboard the fishing vessel. This seafood has a creamy white and pink flesh and a gorgeously mild, sweet taste.
If you’re interested in ordering Weathervane scallops delivery but have an eye toward sustainable practices, this is an excellent choice.

While it’s nearly impossible to go wrong with any scallop preparation, we have one simple but important tip when it comes to Weathervane scallops: Avoid overcooking. Scallops can get very tough and rubbery if exposed to too much heat. The middle of the scallop should remain tender, but the sides should brown and crust slightly on the outside. If you keep your eye on the clock and temper your burner heat, you shouldn’t have a problem with your Weathervane scallops delivery.
