Last year I gave a glimpse into a short weekend trip up to Keaton Beach, Florida where I go scalloping every year. Once again (like we try to do each year) we went back up to Keaton in July to go scalloping. This time I have a big treat… I’ve made a video on how to clean scallops! That’s right. My first video. It didn’t take that long to make thanks to iMovie, and although it’s very “amateur” it’s something that I’m proud of! This was our first year cleaning our own scallops. Typically we pay locals to clean them for us, since it’s not the most glorious job.
*not sure why my voice is off on the video–doesn’t show that way on iMovie
Between four of us (alternating) we cleaned 10 gallons of scallops in a little less than two hours. It took longer than expected, but it happened to be raining, so we honestly we had nothing better to do than clean scallops. I’ll be posting a few bay scallop recipes within the next week, and if you can’t wait to cook some scallops then please feel free to browse through my current scallop recipes.
There is still about two week’s left of scallop season.
Will you be scalloping this weekend for Labor Day?
