Preparation: To prepare the scallops, just soak them in cold water for 10 minutes and cook. Try not to keep them in water for too long as they may fall apart. We recommend rehydrating scallops until they look like store-bought pieces. These scallops are perfect for any recipe - baking, scampi, spaghetti, sautee, etc. It is completely up to you how you want to prepare them - the possibilities are endless. Once rehydrated, they look just like bay scallops you would get at your grocer's deli. You can expect 25+ years shelf life as long as the scallops are sealed in the can - and probably as many as 30 to 40 since there is no water or oxygen in the can to spoil them!!! 

Once opened they will last:
  • up to 1 year in a Zip Lock bag with refrigeration once opened but not re-hydrated
  • up to 60 days in a zip lock bag without refrigeration once opened, but not re-hydrated
  • up to 5 days in the fridge once they are re-hydrated.


These are perfect for storing and using for many years! You can have great tasting food in minutes with no mess and no waste - and it doesn't matter if the power goes out!! You can open just one can at a time and in 10 minutes cook as many of these as you want however you would cook any other fresh seafood!!! Perfect for camping, boating, traveling, or at the cabin. 

Remember, consuming raw or undercooked seafood may increase your risk of foodborne illness
