So, what is argopecten circularis?

Argopecten circularis, also known as the circular scallop, is a species of scallop that is prized for its delicate flavor and tender texture. These bivalves are found in the warm waters of the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, where they feed on plankton and other small organisms. Circular scallops are typically harvested by hand, making them a sustainable and environmentally friendly choice for seafood lovers. They can be enjoyed raw or cooked, and are often featured in elegant seafood dishes such as ceviche, scallop crudo, and scallop carpaccio. With their mild, sweet flavor and firm, succulent flesh, circular scallops are a true delicacy of the sea.
