What part of the scallop is most often eaten?

Chef's answer
adductor musclesIn the United States, the scallop's adductor muscle, the muscle that opens and closes the shell of the animal, is most commonly eaten. Most scallop species tend to swim around, propelling themselves through the water by opening and closing their shell, and so their adductor muscles are well-developed.

    Crabs can be killed by rapid destruction of both nerve centres by piercing both ganglia from the underside of the crab with a pointed spike (e.g. a thick, pointed pithing instrument, an awl or a sharp-pointed knife). Spiking must not be performed on lobsters because they have a long chain of nerve centres.18 Dec 2020
