Nantucket Bay Scallops
Fresh Nantucket Bay Scallops are the jewels of the sea. Smaller and more tender than sea scallops, they are in season from November 1st through March 31st and can be ordered anytime during this period directly from Captain Perkins. Harvested in the morning, they are shelled, packed in coolers and overnight shipped for arrival at your doorstep the very next day. A very special treat available from our Shearwater family.
