Rating: 1 star out of 5

a lottery

Sometimes these are very nice, but at times (twice within last month) they smell bad or even build up pressure in the container upon receipt / before expiry date. Even the cat (a fan of scallops) wouldn't touch.

Dredged! Environmental disaster.

Really i can't buy them anymore. The very opposite of sustainable.

Good quality, appropriate packaging, vary in size

Yes, I agree with the previous comments that what you receive comes in various sizes. However, this is probably the only problem with these scallops. They are properly packaged in a plastic cup, like a soup, and I found them to be of great quality. I would recommend drying them properly prior to cooking and then pan frying them on a medium to high heat for 1-2 min each side to avoid getting chewy scallops as a result.

too chewy and bland, misleading price

I ordered 9 on offer, they still cost £1 each so the 75p typical price is misleading as others have said. The tub was full of water and more came out while cooking, these scallops could not be pan fried although the heat was very high, they were in effect boiled. They were chewy and my daughters who normally love scallops didn't eat them. Will not buy again lt alone recommend to anyone else.

Very variable in size

Beware - I ordered 6 scallops, but when they arrived the individual weights ranged from 43g down to 20g! Also there was a lot of water in the pot, which seemed to have been included in the weight on the pot, and more water came out when I pan fried them - more like boiling than frying, even with a hot pan. Taste was good, but disappointed in the size and water content.

Early summer sees us Brits emerge blinking into the sunlight, clutching the barbecue tongs. This recipe is great for enjoying outdoors when the sun shines, yet easy enough to cook indoors if the weather turns.

While we have taken care in preparing this summary and, to the best of our knowledge, believe it is accurate you should note that the summary product information (in particular the "Other Information" section) may change between the time you place your order on the website and the time your order is delivered (in this regard we rely on our suppliers to tell us of any changes in a timely manner so we can update our website). For example, as all meat and fish products are naturally farmed, there may be occasions when due to weather conditions we may need to source from alternative approved sources (and hence the product origin may change). Therefore, if you do require the most up-to-date product information following delivery of your order, please ensure you check the website for details.
If the summary product information contains a link to another party's website for further information on the product, please note that Ocado has no control over and no liability for the contents of that website.
You also need to be aware that for those service counter goods where we offer additional preparation services (ie removal of the head and tail of a fish or for a rack of lamb to be cut into cutlets), the price will be calculated based on the weight of the whole fish before the head and tail have been removed and the lamb rack before it has been cut into cutlets, should you request this service. The receipt and product label you receive will also show the actual weight of the whole fish and/or lamb rack (before the head and tail of the fish has been removed and the lamb rack has been cut into cutlets).
You should note that the picture images show only our serving suggestions of how to prepare your food - all table accessories and additional items and/or ingredients pictured with the product you are purchasing are not included.
