Nantucket Bay Scallops

I am a nantucket island resident, and my wife and i have been opening scallops for several of the top fishermen here for the last few years...there is definitely a huge difference in size, flavor, and overall firmness of the scallops here on nantucket vs. cape/vinyard/long island product. I agree, the best way to enjoy them is right out of the shell while the eye muscle is still contracting...so sweet!!! The price on-island is $12 to $15...anyone want a shipment? ;-) Seriously, good luck finding them after next week...its starting to become an all day journey to catch your limit.

First Nantucket Bay Scallops of the Season

Hi. I open scallops on nantucket for several fishermen... this year they are very plentiful, but not as big as we were hoping...they are averaging in size from about a nickle in circumference up to over a quarter. Shanty price is 10.50... hope it continues to rise! P. S.- any recipe that calls for more than 2-3 ingredients with bays is to much- they are so sweet just as they are. If you are using alot of flavors just go to sea scallops-.
