TJ's Frozen Scallops-What am I doing wrong?

DanielleM | Dec 29, 2006 08:19 PM

I purchsed a package of Frozen Wild Jumbo Scallops from Trader Joe's, hoping to add scallops to our cooking repetoire along with frozen shrimp that we use regularly.

I defrosted the scallops by soaking them in warm water -- like I do with shrimp, patted them dry once defrosted, then sliced them in half, drizzeled them with olive oil, added salt and pepper, then put them on the grill. We grilled them about 3-4 min on each side.

They turned out awful. They were dry and chewy.

How have you used frozen scallops with success?
