Seafood lovers around the world are celebrating this day with some of their favorite sea scallop recipes. Sea scallops are very popular and are usually prepared by pan searing or sautéing with butter or white wine. These tender treats are low in fat and contain nutrients that your body needs and are easy additions to any meal. In fact, seafood is very healthy and according to The World’s Healthiest Food, eating fish or other seafood like scallops atleast 1 to 3 times per month may reduce the risk of a stroke by 31% (Stroke, July 2004 issue). Due to the amount of vitamin B12 inside of scallops, consuming them may help promote cardiovascular health and protection against colon cancer; another reason to indulge in the light subtle taste.
