Sorry it's parsley Stefan! Regarding to my friends the scallops need cold
waters. They are not fished in the Mediterraneum but in the Atlantic, in the
North and not in the South. But here in Sweden it's not any scallops at all,
we eat here the scallops imported from France, Spain or the US.
By the way I ate a few days ago new catched lobster and new catched crabs,
such delicate flavours! It was in an island near Gothemburg, in the West
cost of Sweden. We ate them without any condiment, cooked them with a pinch
of salt only.
