The scallop is a bivalve mollusc joined by a hinge. It distinguishes itself from oysters and mussels by its ability to “swim” short distances by rapidly closing its valves. This ability creates a sweet and delicate muscle which is the most sought-after part of the scallop. Its white or pink-orange coral is also delicious and much appreciated.
