Scallops Overview

The name "scallop" is applied to many different species of clams or oysters, particularly those in the genera "Chlamys" and "Pecten". As a food, scallops have a mild flavor and can be used in a variety of ways. They are graded on the basis of adductor muscle development, which is used as an indicator of freshness. The color of the shell is also used as a grading criterion.
