Cleaned Scallop from Union Square Farmers Market NYC

How to Clean a Scallop from the Shell: Travel Inspired Recipes

Inspired by a recent trip to Seattle filled with incredible food experiences we headed to the Union Square Farmer's Market in New York City on a mission to create our own. Fresh Scallops, still in the shell, were available at the Seatuck Fish stand. Having never cleaned a Scallop we were a little hesitant, but took a leap of faith that we would be able to do so after seeing a demo from the vendor and being assured that youtube would provide adequate information.
