Not Really Scalloped Potatoes…

I should apologize for advertising this recipe as “Scalloped Potatoes”. Instead, the recipe should be called “Roasted Potatoes with pan-seared scallops.”

What are Bay Scallops?

Bay scallops are generally grown in bays and inlets protected from harsh weather. They are much smaller in size than scallops harvested in the wild which makes them well suited for salads or stir fry. In addition, they are less expensive than the larger scallops. Considering the high price tag of large scallops, Bay scallops offer an affordable and tasty alternative to the full-sized scallops found at most seafood counters.

    1. You are right Tim. This recipe just happened one night and I thought it would cute to combine the two ingredients into one recipe.

    1. Wow. More negativity. This just goes to prove that I shouldn’t give up my day job to become a comedian. 🙂
