So, what is pétoncles?

Pétoncles, also known as scallops, are a type of shellfish that are highly prized in French cuisine. These small, round mollusks have a sweet and delicate flavor that pairs well with a variety of ingredients. Pétoncles are typically found in shallow coastal waters and are harvested by divers or dredging. They can be enjoyed raw or cooked, and are often seared to create a crispy exterior while retaining their tender texture. Pétoncles are a popular ingredient in dishes such as risotto, pasta, and seafood stews, and are a great source of protein and minerals like selenium and zinc.
