Tassie Scallops are Back!

After a break of three and a half years, the Bass Strait scallop fishery re-opened this week for commercial takes. The first harvest hit Hobart today. They look good and plump, the price is almost reasonable, and I can't wait to tuck in to some (very lightly fried in butter and garlic) very very soon.

The curried scallop pies will be pretty bloody good for a while too. Check out where the best in Tasmania are are right here.

are these hand picked or dredged?

Dredged I would imagine, considering they're forecasting 2500 tonnes harvest.
