Pectinids, known as great scallops, are a family of bivalve molluscs related to clams and oysters.
This species has sharp and wavy edges and valves that open and close thanks to an adductor muscle. Great scallop shells are lined with ridges; channels that illustrate the animal’s growth.
Scallops are of great commercial value due to the tasty flavour of their meat, which can be eaten raw or cooked.
They’re rich in B vitamins, especially vitamin B12. It also has a high content in minerals such as potassium, selenium, magnesium and calcium.
