What Queen Scallops are depends on where in the world you are.
The scallops that Australians call “Queen” can actually be found from South Africa down to New South Wales, and from there down to Tasmania.
They will be up to 4 ½ inches (up to 11 cm) long. The shell is light purple outside, dark purple inside. On the inner rim of the scallop meat are 64 blue eyes that can detect shadows.
