    Your tirade the other day got me thinking. Especially that moving short film with Homer Simpson - I don't mind admitting it.

    I have to say I love them all, especially crab and lobster.

    However, I forgot to mention Scallops. I absolutely adore Scallops. Had some tonight and they were amazing, as always.

    But how do they get about on the sea floor? Should I feel guilty about these? Are they normally cute with cute noises, and did Homer also adopt one at one stage?

    Yours

    Scallops..

    Plus points.. They are the frisbees of the sea. No brain. Are delicious. Make good ashtrays.

    Minus points.. Have a nervous system and will try and get away from you if you try and catch them which shows they'd rather not be eaten.

    Verdict... Carry on.

    Yes. Or Saint Jacques. They like calling them Saint Jacques. Cooking them in the shell with gratin over the top is popular there. Coquille Saint Jacques. I don't blame them. Bloody lovely.

    When I was a kid scallops were shallow fried sliced potatoes.

    I do love scallops mind, my favourite sea food too. Bit pricey like but a nice treat now and again.

    I bet they’re cheap as dirt in Barry, the sea food capital of Wales. Yet another reason to live there.

    You can tell how old a scallop is as well by the rings around its shell. A new ring every year. Factoid.

    Fact: Whenever I order scallops in a restaurant my wife scoffs half of them but will never order her own as she "doesn't like the thought of them".
