scallop definition and meaning

What is a "scallop"?

A scallop is a bivalve mollusk with a round, fan-shaped shell. They have tender and sweet meat that is highly valued in cooking. Scallops can swim by clapping their shells together and are filter feeders, extracting small organisms from the water. They are commonly enjoyed in various culinary dishes and are prized for their delicate flavor and texture.
