Hokkaido Hotate or scallops are tender, and creamy shellfish sourced from the coastline of Hokkaido. The ocean surrounding Hokkaido provide the ideal environment for these scallops to grow and thrive due to a mix of cold and water current that pass through the scallop farm.
Harvested from the deep waters of Hokkaido, this item is a Sashimi-grade that can be eaten raw. They are great for sushi, pan-searing, grilling, and boiling. Low in fat and high in protein, these Hotate are a delicacy sought by chefs and fine restaurants.
Top each Hotate with butter and soy sauce, and grill for about 5-10 min or until the butter starts to bubble. Turn the Hotate over and remove it from the heat. Season with a little sea salt and serve.

It is best to thaw frozen seafood in the refrigerator overnight. The refrigerator method means the product can thaw, but it never gets warm enough for the bacteria to start breeding quickly, so it's safer to eat.
Other thawing methods include: immersing frozen seafood in cold water for a short time in a sealed plastic bag or microwaving on a defrost setting until the fish is pliable but still icy.
