Live Scallops

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I can get my hands on some live scallops (i.e. still in the shell) in Toronto?

i have also found them at st lawrence market. they are small, bay scallop sized for around $6.99/lb, but they are the sweetest scallops you have ever tasted. if you are looking on the professional side, taro's fish sells some 10/20 size. i think they were around $3.50 per peice. the shells are about the size of your hand.

hope this helps.

Try Starfish restaurant on Adelaide (416-366-7827). Patrick McMurray has "take-out" of shucked or unshucked oysters and scallops.

I just wanted to add that I found live scallops on the weekend at the T&T Supermarket in Vaughan (in the promenade mall at Bathurst and Centre St.).

PastryBoy,

you can have them flown in to you from LobsterMan in Vancouver. It is the only reliable source, I was in Toronto for 4 years and really missed these - finally had to move back out west!

Let me know if I can help
