These Trader Joe’s scallops have a naturally sweet flavor to them and are super easy to saute, broil or even grill. They are generally a decent size and are priced at under $18/lb which is actually a good value considering how expensive jumbo sea scallops can be at places like Whole Foods. If you defrost these overnight or for half a day in the refrigerator you can put some butter or oil in a pan and get a nice golden crisp on the outside of them. Just like all seafood though, don’t overcook them or they’ll become rubbery. Scallops can differ widely in taste and size, but some have different amounts of added water to them so it can be tough to tell exactly how much of the actual scallop is included in the weight…….…….

Wild Caught Jumbo Sea Scallops at Trader Joe’s
These Trader Joe’s wild caught scallops are incredibly sweet, seafoody and delicious, I just don’t buy them very often since they are pricey. It’s amazing how expensive scallops are, but if you are splurging these really do make your entire house smell amazing when you saute them in butter. How does everyone like to cook these jumbo scallops? Is there a go to sauce or side dish people generally serve when they cook scallops? I think a light butter or white wine sauce goes really well with scallops, so if anyone has a great recipe for a sauce, or even a jarred one at Trader Joe’s, I’d love to hear it! And if you can’t make it out to TJ’s, give these items a try….
