A Few Facts About Scallops

No matter what seafood restaurant you walk into, you’re more than likely to see scallops occupying a spot on the menu. This is because they’re found in just about every ocean across the globe. As such, they’ve attained widespread popularity and are considered one of the tastiest selfish offerings. More often than not, there are two parts of the scallop that are sold at fish markets that are ideal for human consumption. The first of these is what’s known as the adductor muscle; this is the meat that’s usually colored white and is commonly served in most seafood restaurants. The bright orange of the scallop is what’s referred to as the coral. These aren’t served as often as they sometimes contain toxins and have a flavor that’s best described as an “acquired taste.” 

Tastes Good and Good For You 

Like so many other types of seafood, scallops have many healthy attributes to them. Depending upon how they’re prepared, scallops have low concentrations of fat but high amounts of protein. If you’re someone who’s looking to take better care of their heart, then scallops can be an excellent low-calorie food to integrate into your diet. Many shellfish contain fatty acids known as Omega-3s, which help regulate cholesterol. The American Heart Association recommends that all adults get two to three servings of fish a week to promote cardiovascular health, so why not come down to Captain Eddie’s and reap the rewards?
