How to Shuck fresh Long Island Bay scallops
This shellfish how-to video demonstrates a simple technique for shucking Long Island Bay scallops. Although the entire scallop is edible most people only eat the muscle that holds the shell closed. To remove as much of that muscle as possible try to get the knife to scrape the top of the shell as you open the scallop. The typical Long Island bay scallop yields a meat about the height and diameter of a stack of 8 nickels. Some larger, some smaller, but that's about average. Follow along with this instructional how to video to learn the proper way to shuck fresh Long Island Bay scallops.
