The pros: Trader Joe’s Wild Fresh Sea Scallops are one of two options for scallops at Trader Joe’s. The package is vacuum sealed and keeps the scallops very fresh.
The cons: Nothing really stands out.
This summer has been pretty darn hot so far. So hot, I’ve had little interest in cooking.
I still want dinner and I have an upper limit on how many dinners I’d like to come out of the microwave.
So, seafood is my go to when the weather is this warm.
I used to be intimidated by cooking seafood until I took a cooking class at my local Sur La Table. Once I knew how to cook seafood correctly, I found myself making it all the time.
Scallops are easy, peasy. It only takes about 90 seconds on each side and they are done. I opted to marinade mine in some of Trader Joe’s Island Soyaki.
What came out were just as good as the frozen jumbo scallops that I recently tried. My package had 10 scallops in them. They were large enough for two full sized portions. These seems slightly larger than the frozen variety.
For $13.99 per pound these are reasonably priced and were well sealed for freshness. The soyaki added quite a bit of color to these, but they did not need a knife.
They were fresh tasting and slightly salty on their own. If you are fan of seafood, this is a good option to go for.
