National Coquilles Saint Jacques Day

Every year on May 16, National Coquilles Saint Jacques Day is celebrated to pay tribute to 'the Shell of St. James,' an alternative name for the beloved seafood delicacy, scallops. In France, the term "coquille" specifically refers to a certain type of scallop, and for the designated dish, only this particular variety is utilized. The preparation involves a delectable blend of butter, cream, mushrooms, and cheese. However, for those in regions where the specific coquille scallop isn't readily available, any variety of scallop can be used, and they can be prepared in a diverse array of culinary styles.
