Cape Cod scallops in the shell
- theparegorickid Jul 22, 2009 05:12 AM
Heard someone farms them in Buzzards Bay. Saw them on TV Diner the other day and they looked great.
Anyone ever seen them for sale anywhere on the Cape other than at a restaurant?
Check out Clamman fish market in Falmouth or Lobstertrap Market in Bourne.. both good fishmongers for source on stuff like that
The episode you refer to was just aired again tonight. Very interesting! Essentially a Cape Bay scallop grown in Buzzards Bay but no restriction on the season as Chatham Bars Inn features them as a special menu item on Fridays. They get them fresh that day. Plus, they say you can eat the whole scallop, not just the 'muscle' as they're grown in cages so there's no sand. Please post if you find them anywhere. As a plus, they look really beautiful, I'd like to experiment with them.
