Maryland chefs count on Mister Fish for prime sea scallops and bay scallops. We deliver to restaurants and other food service locations throughout Maryland, with a focus on Baltimore, Ocean City and Washington DC. The majority of scallops sold on the East Coast come from the United States, Canada and Argentina.
Sea scallops are available year-round. Since sea scallops die once they are out of the water, they are immediately shucked at sea and put on ice, or frozen while still on board. Bay scallops are a smaller cousin of sea scallops. Bay scallops are generally processed once ashore. Bay scallops also have a reputation for being the best-tasting of all scallops.
Top-quality scallops will have an ivory translucence and elastic springiness that allows them to keep their shape.
We sell several sizes of scallops, by the pound:
As local seafood distributors, we deliver fresh from the sea. Everything arrives at our facility on ice, and leaves on our trucks in less than 24 hours. All of the trucks in our fleet are fully refrigerated, allowing us to offer deliveries at the optimum temperature. We pre-cool our trucks before loading and stacking the products on pallets.
Food safety is our #1 priority. We are fully HACCP certified through the FDA in all areas. HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points) is a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product.
