Riviera Seafood Club's Wild-Caught Japanese Sea Scallops, scientifically named Patinopecten yessoensis, are sustainably and responsibly wild-caught in Hokkaido, Japan. Their flavor is incredibly deep and rich paired with a complex texture that is either delicate and soft when raw or firm when cooked. Wild-Caught Japanese Sea Scallops, called Hotatekai in Japanese, will arrive at your door as frozen whole scallops.
Our Wild-Caught Japanese Sea Scallops are sushi and sashimi grade best either raw or pan-seared. Riviera's Japanese Scallops are sustainably sourced with our fisherman receiving the Maine Stewardship Council’s accreditation as a globally sustainable fishery.

We guarantee our Japanese Sea Scallops are the best quality that you can find!
By superfreezing our fresh seafood, in special ultra-cold -60°C freezers, we are able to lock in the freshness and texture of our sushi-grade seafood, while also allowing you to store our products in your conventional freezer for later consumption.
Also, to help many of our customers, most of our superfrozen seafood is shipped out in 8oz portions so you can order more at one time to save on shipping costs, and so you can thaw only the amount you need.
Incredibly fresh, sweet and tender! I made scallop nigiri for the family and it was a huge hit! Will definitely repurchase! Thank you for providing us with such amazing quality seafood!
So deliciously sweet, butterflied, with a little dollop of yuzukosho and a drizzle of ponzu. Oh so good.
Wild-Caught Japanese Sea Scallops
Sweet, tender, and delicious!
Was skeptical how good can it be? after reading the reviews I decided to give it a try….It was excellent and beyond my expectations..
To die for!
The most amazing scallops! Would eat them for every meal if given an endless supply. Order these now, you won’t regret it.
THE REAL DEAL-NOT STINGRAY
Apparently some so called "scallops" are simply stamped out of stingrays and manta rays...mostly in third world countries and then repacked and sold as such. I prefer NOT to eat Stingray meat or manta Ray meat. RIVIERA has the real deal....so no worries there. I prefer to mix my scallops into my Ensalada De Marisocs.....soaking up the Flavorful juices and adding to my Ensalada. I do not do do cooked Scallops and do not like the taste....In a Ceviche......as Sushi....or in a Latin American Dish... COLD ensalada de mariscos ...one can experience and enjoy the subtle flavors of these Cold water Delights.
Super fresh and Riviera is the only place I can trust !!
