Fresh scallops right from the sea...now that's how I prefer to eat my seafood!!  I am so fortunate that Mike from Rimrack Fish (Rye, NH) goes out to the ocean scalloping.  Today his fishing boat had engine problems but he managed to return safely and still brought back these huge, tender, and sweet scallops.  Thank you Mike & Rimrack Fish for the amazing tasty sea scallops!!
