Grilled scallops

Although most pearls are actually found in the shell of an oyster, the scallop contains another pearl, its meat.

The flesh of the scallop is basically the muscle that allows the scallop to open and close its shell. This particularly tender piece of meat has a delicious salty, almost nutty taste.

Coquille requires a very short preparation time. A good quality fresh scallop is even delicious cut raw as sashimi! We therefore prepare a scallop in such a way that it is still partially raw on the inside. Only then can you optimally enjoy the tenderness and taste of a scallop.

The scallop is a dish that is perfect as a starter or appetizer. We have prepared these gems in a simple but very tasty way.
