Nordic Wild Caught Sea Scallops, harvested in the deep Northeast Atlantic Ocean, are considered one of the most highly sought after delicacies of the ocean.
Dan and Daneen Eilertsen are the owners and operators of Nordic and have been harvesting scallops in these waters for decades. The six scallop vessels Nordic uses are considered the best in the New Bedford, MA fleet, as each vessel is constantly upgraded with new technology and procedures.
Committed to sustainability, the Nordic Wild Caught Sea Scallop is one of the greatest recoveries of an overfished fishery and this has a lot to do with fisherman like Dan. Dan works closely with and offers his fleet to the NOAA Marine Fisheries, and the University of Massachusetts throughout the year for ocean surveys of not only sea scallops, but also for other at-risk species such as cod and flounder.

How to Defrost
Thawing frozen seafood properly is extremely important not only to ensure the quality
of the seafood but also to prevent health risks. All of our seafood has a protective glaze
of water to prevent freezer burn in ensure quality. Once thawed, gently pat away any
excess moisture from the glazing as soon as possible.
We recommend that you follow the USDA’s instructions on safe food handling, which
can be found here. We also recommend that all cooking instructions be followed and
that you use a food thermometer to ensure that all seafood and other applicable items
are cooked to the USDA’s recommended internal temperatures, which can be found here.
Here are a few simple ways how to defrost:
The Refrigerator Method
It might be the longest, but thawing seafood in the refrigerator is undoubtedly the safest
way to thaw any protein such as seafood. It also protects the quality of the seafood,
providing the best quality-control method. For our Individual Frozen Portions (IFP) or
Individually Quick Frozen (IQF) bags like our shrimp and scallops, it can take up to 12-
24 hours to thaw. Please remove from original package, plate and cover, or at a
minimum puncture the plastic packaging. Once thawed, seafood lasts for up to three
days in the original package. Do not refreeze after thawing.
The Water Method
Here’s how it works:
IFP Portions: Place the seafood in a bowl of cold water (not warm or hot as that starts
the cooking process) in the kitchen sink. Change the water every now and then or
place a constant drip/spray of water to control the temperature. Check the seafood after
one hour – it should be fully thawed by then. Cook immediately after thawing.
IQF bags: Place the desired quantity of seafood (scallops/shrimp) that you will be using
into another re-sealable bag. Replace unused IQF seafood immediately back in to the
freezer. Submerge the sealed bag in a bowl of cold tap water. Let the bag sit in the water until
it’s completely thawed, changing the water every 30 minutes, if necessary. We don’t
recommend running under cold water outside of bag. Cook immediately after thawing.
The Microwave Method
Not always the favorite way but it’s fast, and the microwave method is surely the
quickest of the three, but it’s the least preferable method in terms of preserving the
seafood’s quality. But if you forgot to take out of the freezer and you are in a hurry,
here’s what you do: make sure your puncture the plastic before placing it in the
microwave. Use the “Defrost” function and set the time according to weight. Cook
immediately after thawing
