Hervey Bay scallop meat has a strong and rich flavour with a medium-firm texture. Scallops are versatile in that they can be grilled, deep fried, barbequed or tossed through your favourite sauce.  Try to avoid overcooking or using too much salt as this can cause shrinkage.  When choosing a wine to accompany Scallop meat, a fresh Tasmanian Riesling will be perfect for dishes containing citrus components.
