Best Scallops In Detroit

Scallops are found all over the world. In fact, these animals can grow up to nine inches in size. They have recognizable shells because the shells are fan-shaped with ribs, they can swim, they have eyes, and they are bivalves. When eating a scallop, you're actually eating the adductor muscle. The muscle is round and fleshy and tends to be white in color. If you haven't tried a scallop, live a little; they're delicious.
