How to Freeze Fresh Scallops

Our fresh Jumbo Scallops are not only delicious but also perfect for buying in bulk! If you find yourself unable to consume the entire order within the initial two days of its arrival, freezing is an excellent option! Here's a simple guide on how to freeze fresh scallops:

 

  1. Preparation: Ensure your scallops are fresh and clean before freezing. If necessary, rinse them under cold water and pat them dry with paper towels.
  2. Wrap Them Securely: Seal the scallops in a moisture-resistant wrap or freezer bag. For optimal results, consider using a vacuum sealer or high-quality moisture-resistant wrap to preserve their flavor and texture.
  3. Double Protection: Double-wrap the scallops to provide an extra layer of protection against freezer burn and moisture loss.
  4. Label and Date: Remember to label the freezer wrapping with the contents and date of freezing. This will help you keep track of how long they've been stored.
  5. Freeze Properly: Place the wrapped scallops in a freezer set to 0 degrees Fahrenheit (-18 degrees Celsius) or below. Ensuring the freezer is at the correct temperature is essential for preserving the quality of the scallops.

By following these steps, you can freeze fresh scallops with confidence, knowing they'll retain their delicious flavor and texture for later enjoyment.
