They are part of the oyster family a little bit like clams. They are called scallops because of their beautiful scalloped shells.
They also have two kinds of meat - the meaty part called scallop and the red and white soft part called roe. The roe is usually discarded and only the scallop part used – to be truthful, I used to gently cook to roe and give them to our dog; she loved them.
