Wild Alaskan Weathervane Scallops
These plump, delicate scallops are harvested for us in icy cold Alaskan waters by a fourth -generation fishing family dedicated to premier quality. They are hand-shucked and frozen at sea for optimum freshness.
Storing: Your Alaskan scallops have been quick-frozen to lock in their flavor. Upon arrival, please refrigerate or freeze. Scallops will keep in the freezer for approximately 6 months; once thawed they should be cooked and used within 3 days.
Thawing: The best way to thaw your scallops is to leave them in the refrigerator overnight (in their pouch), for 8 – 10 hours. If you must thaw your scallops quickly, place frozen pouch in a bowl of cool water for 30 minutes, and then continue thawing in the refrigerator.
Be sure to rinse scallops and pat dry with paper towels prior to cooking.
Pan Seared: Melt 1 tablespoon butter in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Dip each scallop in a bit of flour (this is a great method although not necessary) and brown over high heat 1-2 minutes per side; until center is opaque. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and serve.
Note: Be sure not to overcrowd scallops in skillet.
Baked: Preheat oven to 450F. Brush scallops with butter and a dusting of bread crumbs if desired. Place tray high in oven and bake for 3-4 minutes until opaque in center. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Grilled: Brush grill with olive oil PRIOR to heating. Season scallops with salt and pepper. Once the grill is medium hot place the scallops, uncovered, and cook over medium heat for 1-2 minutes on each side or until the scallops are firm and cooked through.

|Ingredients: Wild Alaskan Weathervane Scallops|
1 lb. Wild Alaskan Weathervane Scallops
6-8 slices bacon
6-8 medium zucchini
4-6 green onions, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
Fresh lemon juice
Salt & pepper
Dry thawed scallops, set aside and cover. In a large frying pan, cook bacon to desired crispness. As bacon is cooking, use a vegetable spiralizer to make the zucchini noodles. In another pan, add 2-3 teaspoons of bacon fat. Bring to medium-high heat before adding the zucchini noodles and chopped red onion.
Sauté until just softened and warmed, about 2–3 minutes. As the zucchini noodles cook, chop the bacon into desired sizes. Remove noodles from heat and add garlic powder, salt and pepper to taste, then toss with half of the bacon and a squeeze of lemon juice and set aside.
Return the first pan to medium high heat with the remaining bacon fat. Add the scallops and sear for approximately 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Remove from heat.
Divide the noodles into desired portion sizes and plate, adding scallops on top and garnishing with green onions, remaining bacon, and black pepper if desired. Bon appétit!
