    I’m not sure what I expected when I ordered these, I mean, I love scallops, I love tomato, onion and paprik. I was not prepared for what I actually received. My partner was in the mood for Indian food so I made some (unspiced) basmati and a jarred simmer sauce, I took some of that rice in a small bowl and unceremoniously dumped the entire tin, oil and all. I’m not gonna lie I couldn’t wait to taste some scallops so I snached a few before the rice had warmed them. Delicious. Once I mixed it up and let the scallops warm, omg, I didn’t expect fresh perfectly cooked scallops but that’s what I got, just a little bit of some sneaky spice in there. Mmm, dang those were good.

    Loosely packed tin…12 scallops…about the size of a quarter…in red oil…these are more mussel like in appearance then what you think of as scallops…this is not a negative…
    Tender flesh with a nice chew…mellow seafood flavor…nice oil with flavors of tomato and paprika…those Spaniards love their paprika…flavors of onion…a very, very faint hint of heat in the background…in the sauce there is a gelatinous like substance that appears to be onion that has wilted in the marinade?…it’s delicious!…

    This is a delicious tin, with a lot of different flavors happening…would buy again…

    Had with Toasted and Buttered Garlic Bread (SKH)…DS Pickled Red Onion #2…and Mezzetta Colossal Castelvetrano Style Olives…and washed it all down with…….Willm – Cremant d’Alsace – Rose Brut – N.V
