Scallop seashells are a marine bivalve mollusks which are similar to oysters and clams. The difference is scallop seashells can swim by opening and closing their shells. By snapping their shells together, scallops propel themselves rapidly in a zigzag direction. Most are tropical, but a few live in polar waters. Scallops are fished commercially for the large single muscle which is excellent eating.
Scallop seashells are popular sea shells both as collector's items and as food. You can recognize a scallop shell by the fan shape of the seashell which can also be seen on the logo of Shell Oil gas stations.
Scallops are often used as main dishes, appetizers, salads, and soup. The meat of this seashell is sweet and delicate. The scallop seashell itself is often used as a baking dish and/or serving dish for seafood recipes.
Throughout the centuries scallop shells were used in decoration of buildings, ceremonial dances and symbols.
