PORTLAND - Togue Brawn is on a mission -- a mission to get you to eat more fresh Maine sea scallops.
Sea scallops are so delicious, Brawn and other scallop experts say, that fishermen always claim they are best eaten raw, right on the boat.
"When you have a really, really fresh scallop, it has an ocean flavor," Brawn said. "When it's raw, it has a really good texture, and it doesn't have a fishy flavor at all. Scallops in general, relative to other seafood, are mild, but Maine scallops particularly are very mild. It's almost a shame to cook them because they're so good raw."
