This is a great video featuring Japanese Hokkaido Scallops. These scallops have large adductors with thin fibers, and are very firm. They grow in the Northern seas in very cold water resulting in a sweet taste and succulent texture, and are processed year round. Hokkaido scallops can be served raw, simmered, grilled, or deep fried, and are great in soups.
