Roe on scallop
The scallop Argopecten purpuratus is a bivalve commonly known as the scallop.
It is one of the largest members of the Pectinidae family. Its two valves with large ridged ribs extending from the top of the shell are red to brown, sometimes pink or spotted.
It is harvested in Peru all year round, by hand by divers.
The absence of any chemical treatment allows its taste qualities to be fully expressed.
We sell it nut with coral.
Enjoy it in cooked shells, pan-fried, in cassolettes or in puff pastry.
