Dry Scallops vs Wet Scallops

No matter what, scallops are a delicious choice for everything from salads, to appetizers, to an elegant dinner.  Dry scallops are wild and natural and a great seared and served alone.  Wet scallops are the perfect ingredient with more complex recipes – Think scallops wrapped in bacon or in creamy pastas.  No matter which you prefer, the sweet, meaty flavor of scallops are gaining in popularity across America.
