    Default Scallops

    I went to my favorite grocery store a little while ago and it was like a
    circus in there today. They had a seafood booth set up just as you walk in
    the door and they were cooking up samples, and had great prices. Probably
    really needed to ditch some food stuff but it was a buyer's market. I tried
    the scallops the clerk was cooking and asked him about water cooking out and
    he showed me the pan and true enough, there was no water in the pan. So I
    bought some. I'm going to try the scallop pizza tomorrow. I meant to get
    some spinach leaves to put on it, and some ricotta but without a list, I
    forgot. I'll try it plain to start.

    What kind were they, or how did he cook them that there was no water in the
    pan? Were they sea or bay scallops?

    Sea scallops, and he just pan seared them in a garlic butter. I watched him
    cook some more and again, no water. He did cut them into small pieces
    before pan searing because they were meant as tasters.

    Then they were 'real' scallops, not the skate or surimi cut to look
    like scallops.

    ==========================

    Good! Then I'm looking forward to the results. I also got some huge shrimp
    (Gulf, hopefully not oil tainted) at a really good price. I'm going to
    grill those.

    surimi is a processd paste product made of different kinds of fish
    that they form and flavor to resemble crab, lobster, shrimp, scallops,
    etc.

    We had this last weekend for a late lunch (2ish), it's very tasty.
    My kid the chef was impressed.



    Grilled Scallops with Warm Potato and Bacon Salad

    Ingredients:

    1 1/2 quarts vegetable broth or water
    4 cloves garlic -- divided
    1 rosemary sprig
    1 thyme sprig
    1 bay leaf
    1 pound potatoes -- (3 medium) cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces
    1/4 pound bacon -- (about 5 slices) cut into 1 inch pieces
    4 shallots -- cut into thin slices
    1 tablespoon sherry vinegar
    4 ounces frise -- washed (about 4 cups)
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt -- divided
    3/4 teaspoon pepper -- divided
    1 1/2 pounds sea scallops



    Directions:

    In large saucepan, bring broth, 3 cloves of the garlic, the rosemary,
    thyme and bay leaf to a boil over medium-high heat. Add potatoes and
    boil, uncovered,10 to 13 minutes or until potatoes are just tender.
    Drain potatoes, discarding herb sprigs and garlic cloves; set aside.
    In large non-stick skillet, cook bacon over medium heat 8 to 10
    minutes or until crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels; reserve bacon
    fat. In same skillet, cook and stir potatoes in reserved
    bacon fat 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown. Mince the remaining
    clove of garlic. Add garlic and shallots to the potato mixture; cook
    and stir 2 to 3 minutes or until shallots are soft. Add reserved
    cooked bacon and vinegar, mixing until combined. In large bowl, toss
    potato mixture with frise. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and
    1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Arrange salad evenly on 4 serving plates
    and set aside. Meanwhile, season scallops with remaining 1 teaspoon
    salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Grill scallops over medium-hot coals
    (or broil on rack of broiler pan 3 to 4 inches from heat) 4 to 6
    minutes or until scallops are cooked to desired doneness, turning
    once. Serve with salad. It will feed three nicely.

    Always ask to see the bags they came in. They're usually going to
    be in 2 or 5lb bags. By law, they have to show you any original
    seafood/shellfish label and invoice (and note whether it was from
    2004 or just recently).

    Oh, **** the duck already?

    They do NOT sell skate or fish as scallops! Period!

    That's it's.

    If you can't tell real scallops from real fake paste, then you have
    no business being here. Even Taco Bell doens't use fake shrimp (I
    know because they served me the bay shrimp I'm allergic to by
    accident).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surimi

    In Asian cultures, surimi is eaten as a food in its own right and
    seldom used to imitate other foods. In Japan fish cakes (kamaboko) and
    fish sausages, as well as other extruded fish products, are commonly
    sold as cured surimi.

    In Chinese cuisine, fish surimi, often called "fish paste," is used
    directly as stuffing or made into balls. Balls made from lean beef (牛肉
    丸, lit. "beef ball") and pork surimi often are seen in Chinese
    cuisine. Fried, steamed, and boiled surimi products also are found
    commonly in Southeast Asian cuisine.

    In the West, surimi products usually are imitation seafood products,
    such as crab, abalone, shrimp, calamari, and scallop. Several
    companies do produce surimi sausages, luncheon meats, hams, and
    burgers. Some examples include: Salmolux salmon burgers and SeaPak
    surimi ham, salami, and rolls. A patent was issued for the process of
    making even higher quality proteins from fish such as in the making of
    imitation steak from surimi. Surimi is also used to make kosher
    imitation shrimp and crabmeat, using only kosher fish such as pollock.
    [edit] Chemistry of surimi curing

    The curing of the fish paste is caused by the polymerization of myosin
    when heated. The species of fish is the most important factor that
    affects this curing process.[4] Many pelagic fish with higher fat
    contents lack the needed type kind of heat-curing myosin and are not
    used for surimi.

    Certain kinds of fish, such as the Pacific whiting, cannot form firm
    surimi without additives such as egg white or potato starch. Before
    the outbreak of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE, mad cow), it
    was an industrial practice to add bovine blood plasma into the fish
    paste to help its curing or gel-forming. Today some manufacturers may
    use a transglutaminase to improve the texture of surimi.

    * Fish ball

    No.. Tell me it's not true! There is fake crab, shrimp, scallops
    and lobster called surimi?

    Do you really think anybody except you is buying that stuff thinking
    it's REAL crab, shrimp, lobster or scallops?

    I think you win the "Dumbass of the Week award". 6 more and you'll
    clinch "Dumbass of Year" over Stu and Andy.

    Do any stores sell fresh scallops? I live in the SF Bay area.

    Also, when you get scallop sushi at Japanese restaurants, do you get
    fresh or previously frozen?

    You really, really need to eat fresh raw scallops the day you buy them;
    the texture and flavour deteriorate very rapidly.

    Apparently you don't know jack **** about seafood. There is nobody with
    an IQ above room temperature who would ever confuse surimi imitation

    scallops from a quality seafood supplier and stop babbling about things
    you don't have a clue about.
