Hokkaido sea scallops are often referred to as Japanese scallops. These are the most coveted scallops in the sushi culinary scene because of their size, meatiness, and amazing flavour as scallop sashimi - they're truly second to none. When you bite into a Hokkaido scallop, you'll discover their perfectly sweet taste and melt in your mouth decadence, making it obvious as to why these Japanese scallops are so revered. There's a reason why we named these Sweet and Delicate Hokkaido Scallops.
Even though the Hokkaido scallop is traditionally served raw with steamed rice or as sashimi, those are not the only ways to enjoy this delicacy. Hokkaido scallops can also be pan/skillet seared and grilled, caramelizing them to perfection to bring out their nuanced sweet taste with aromas that will make your mouth water. It doesn't take long to sear scallops, and when you bite into them you'll first experience their delicate texture, then your tastebuds will be enveloped in their sweet seafood flavours.

Made chop chop rolls with these scallops and they were amazing, we also pan fried some to test it out and the organic ocean scallops really give the store bought ones a run for their money. Absolutely fresh and amazing, barely any shrinkage after cooked.
Unbelievable!! Texture and flavor can't be beat.
