Queen Scallops in Marinated Sauce

  • Exhibitor: FRINSA
  • Brand name: Frinsa
  • Sector: CONSERVAS DE MARISCO

“The queen scallops (Chlamys sp) are a bivalve belonging to the Pectinidae family, very similar to the Atlantic scallop but smaller in size. Its natural habitat is on rocks along the coast, at depths of up to 8o m. Like other bivalve molluscs, it is a filter feeder which lives on plankton. It is caught from a boat with a device called a dredge or rake.”

“Frinsa queen scallops are caught in the Galician Estuaries.

After being cleaned to eliminate the sand, they are dehydrated and their hepato-pancreas is removed. Then they are canned in Atlantic scallop sauce, prepared using traditional Galician recipes.”
