Hand Dived King Scallops
£1.80 – £3.50
We have been fishing for these beauties for the past 11 years and we still can’t get enough of them! Caught from our own boats or other local dive boats fishing from Mull and its surrounding waters, our scallops are individually picked up by hand, causing no damage to the surrounding marine environment. Any undersized ones are put back into the sea so that they can continue to grow and spawn.
Scallop shucking (or properly ‘cutting’) is a skilled business, so we pre-cut your scallops for you, leaving the meat and roe still attached to the half shell but with all gut removed. So you will still receive the scallops in their shells, but won’t have to deal with any mess – and more importantly won’t lose any of that precious white meat. We guarantee these scallops will be the freshest and sweetest you’ve ever eaten – all the more so because you know they have come at no cost to the environment!
Their sweet taste is best brought out by simple cooking – we love them simply sautéed with a bit of crispy pancetta on the side. Here are a few more of our favourite recipes:
Scallops are priced individually, and are available in three sizes: medium (approx. 5 per kg), large (approx. 4 per kg) and extra large (approx. 3 per kg).
All effort will be made to supply your shellfish – however as a live catch which is subject to the variables of weather and fishing there may be times when we are obliged to cancel or postpone your order.
