Zygochlamys patagonica without coral

The Zygochlamys patagonica scallop is a bivalve, from the Pectinidae family.
Its 2 striped shells show a light-beige to brown coloration.
Our scallop is caught throughout the year in Argentina (FAO zone 41) using drags.
The absence of soaking enables its gustative qualities to express entirely.
Since the 08/08/2014, a water/protein ratio equal or below 5,5 is considered acceptable.
We offer the whole scallop without the coral.
The meat is lean and tasteful, and it can be appreciated in cooked shells, flaky pastries, cassolettes or fried-pan.
