Scallops warning after 17 cases of poisoning

People have been warned not to eat fresh scallops for the time being after 17 cases of paralytic shellfish poisoning in the past three days.

The Centre for Health protection said the affected people, in nine groups, comprised six men and 11 women aged 17 to 69.

They fell ill between Saturday and yesterday after cooking and eating the scallops at home.

Swapping Maine lobsters for mainland scallops - a gas firm's menu to help the planet

It's the month when everyone talks about Copenhagen and worries about climate change. So the Hong Kong and China Gas Co sees an opportunity and has a lead on everyone else. Its restaurants are introducing a 'low carbon' menu for the festive season. So forget about Maine lobsters, Japanese yesso scallops or California strawberries.

Perfect match

Why would you use Japanese scallops to make quenelles? Because they're large and supremely tasty. If you need another reason, larger scallops have longer fibres and, in a quenelle mixture, that gives extra textural support that would otherwise be handed over to the cream and egg.

Tale of roe

Scallops are prized for their sweet, subtle taste and silken texture - which can be ruined if the shellfish are overcooked. The freshest (and most reasonably priced) scallops are purchased live from a wet market; have the vendor clean them and cut the muscle attaching them to the shell.

New warning against eating scallops

Mainland shellfish imports suspected source of toxin scare

The contaminated scallop sample revealed by health officials on Friday is believed to have been imported from the mainland, seafood traders said.

The Centre for Food Safety issued a warning not to eat scallops after a sample was found to contain a toxin that can cause paralysis or death.

The attractive 'packaging' of scallops isn't just false advertising, because inside the pretty shell is sweet, succulent meat.

Perfect Match

It's amazing how the hard-working muscle of a scallop can be so succulent and tender. But the delicate, protein texture can easily turn into cardboard if over-heated. Scallops also have a tendency to shrink, which squeezes out their delicious juices.

Seafood sellers count their losses as supplies dry up

Seafood stalls and restaurants stopped selling scallops yesterday as wholesalers suspended supplies following the food poisoning cases.

The number of markets identified to have sold contaminated shellfish rose from five to 10 yesterday.

Dried scallops

Dried scallops are one of the few luxury Chinese dried food products we can enjoy without guilt about such issues as cruelty, as with shark's fin, declining populations from overfishing (abalone) or wondering if we are funding shady characters who pay a pittance to the workers risking their lives by scaling vertiginous cave walls (swallows' nests).

Scallops at a gallop

As a child, I thought the scallop was a small, off-white round muscle, because that is the only part of the shellfish most restaurants in the United States serve. While at university, I started to read food magazines. In one article in Food Art, I found out most fishermen discarded the best part of the scallop: the orangey roe.

$10,000 fine for low-weight 'catty'

Dried seafood company Wah Fung Medicine (Group) was fined the maximum $10,000 for selling a batch of underweight preserved scallops to undercover Customs officers.

The fine was imposed at Western Court after it sold a catty of scallops for $320 that was 17 per cent less than the weight claimed on May 13.
