Should you remove the roe from scallops?

Chef's answer
Discard the attached muscle, skirt and black stomach sack. Inside, you will also find a vivid orange roe (also called coral), which is often discarded but is actually edible. Rinse (don't drench) several times in cold water to remove sand or grit. Once shucked, scallops can be cooked.
