The whole scallop is edible, and in Europe, they are eaten in their entirety like oysters. In the US, however, only the shell muscle is eaten and it is this white cylinder of flesh that is commonly thought of in America as a scallop. The flavor is sweet and delicate, and is best served with a mild sauce of cream, cheese, or butter that will not overpower the delicious flavor of the scallop itself.
Place desired quantity of scallops in container and thaw in refrigerator for 8 hours. For quicker thawing, place scallops in a colander and rinse under cold water for 5 to 7 minutes. Rotate scallops for even thawing.
