Why is the coral separated from the scallop?

cassis | Jan 31, 2009 11:01 PM

In the US why is the coral of scallops removed, and what happens to it? Whether in the markets or served in restaurants, it's as if the coral doesn't exist. Here in France where I've been for a few months, the coral is attached or served with the scallops.

I could also ask why we in the US are deprived of the sight of a composition of whole fish on ice as seen here in every supermarket, instead of rows of fillets, but that's another topic.
