Kieran Perree, scallop diver and Golden Scallop founder shares his recipe for pan fried Lyme Bay scallops

Kieran was introduced to diving as a teenager by his stepdad, diving on shipwrecks off Portland. A passion for shellfish is in Kieran’s family – his stepdad dives for scallops and his dad is a lobster fisherman. With 21 years of diving experience to draw on he knows where to find the best scallops. “Hand dived scallops are my best seller. Lyme Bay scallops are particularly popular due to their sweetness which I believe is down to the sediment and nutrients in the water column in Lyme Bay.”

Golden Scallops were awarded ‘Highly Commended Sustainable Award’ at Pommery Dorset Seafood Festival in 2017.
