Live Peconic Bay Scallops and Weekend Specialties 11.5.15 November 04 2015 Posted in

The first Monday of November marks the start of Peconic Bay scallop season and it’s always eagerly awaited by aficionados.  While Nantuckets seem to be more popular, we’ll take these super sweet local beauties any day.  The season starts in November and is scheduled to last 5 months although most of the production usually happens in the first month.  Last year’s season was a bit of a bust, but this year hopes to be a better one, with cooler temps in the summer potentially leading to better growth.  We’ll have live peconics in this weekend and we expect to see shucked quite soon.  No recipe needed for the live ones, just shuck them and pop 'em in your mouth!
