People have been enjoying scallops as a food ever since this beautiful mollusk appeared in the Earth's waters, basically since time immemorial.
Scallops are found in many waters throughout the world. The great scallop is abundant in the Mediterranean.
The soft fleshy texture and delicately mild sweet flavor of scallops are enjoyed by even those who are not particularly fond of fish or other shellfish.
The season for fresh sea scallops and bay scallops runs from October through March, while fresh calico scallops are available from December through May.
Most people know that scallops are good for health but what is so special about them? As it turns out, scallops, in addition to their delectable taste, contain a variety of nutrients. It`s unbelievably but it`s scientifically proved that nutrients in scallops can promote your cardiovascular health, plus provide protection against colon cancer.
Scallops are actually a great source of a very important nutrient for cardiovascular health, vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is needed by the body to convert homocysteine, a chemical that can directly damage blood vessel walls, into other benign chemicals. Since high levels of homocysteine are associated with an increased risk for atherosclerosis, diabetic heart disease, heart attack, and stroke, it's a good idea to be sure that your diet contains plenty of vitamin B12 to help keep homocysteine levels low.
Scallops are a good source of magnesium and potassium, two other nutrients that provide significant benefits for the cardiovascular system. They lower blood pressure while improving blood flow and help to maintain normal blood pressure levels.
