Nantucket Bay Scallops
From what I understand these are only in season for a few weeks... does anyone know where to get them? I found some at Citrella for $30/lb. but I'm sure they are being sold somewhere else for around $20.
Years ago I got some from Fish Tales, Court St, Bklyn. I do remember the season being very short and I do remember paying a bunch. Fish Tales prices can get into Manhattan range. No diss on them. I like them a lot.
Their regular diver scallops are probably up around $16 by now--haven't gotten them in a while.

Nantucket and Peconic Bay scallops are among the finest seafoods in the world. Perfect raw, but when broiled they get a caramelized crust that is fantastic. I have seen Nantuckets go as high as $40/lb...Peconics are harder to find, but should be less. I don't know how long the Nantucket season is, but the season for Peconic stretches on to March. However, by then they are not as tasty. The main season is November.
Get them from the source! Call Sayle's Seafood on Nantucket -- they'll pack them and ship them to you. 508-228-4599. Keep in mind, scallops are not plentiful here this season, and that will affect the price.
