ISO Scallops in Edmonton

My dad has a hankering for "Coquilles St. Jacques", the scallop dish with the mushrooms. Does anyone know where to get decent scallops in Edmonton? Doesn't have to be live on the shell, but should be sweet and succulent tasting. I got some at billingsgate years ago, and they were so rank and stinky we threw them out without even trying one. I am hoping to avoid a similar incident....

  1. I often buy Costco's frozen scallops...they are huge and always great. After thawing, I place them in kitchen towels to soak up the extra moisture...makes for a better sear.
