I know it is some kind of seafood as it appears in a list of "les poissons et les fruits de mer".

    egueule said:
    Pétoncles are either bay scallops (Argopecten irradians) or Atlantic sea scallops / giant scallops (Placopecten magellanicus)
    Which dictionary are you using, egueule? It seems to be a really complete one.

    I didn't use a dictionary, first I googled in French for the scientific names for pétoncles then I googled for them in English web pages.

    I thought scallops were coquilles St-Jacques?
    For your info:
    Coquilles St-Jacques are also a meal: they contain seafood and bechamel sauce, are usually rimmed with mashed potatoes and topped with cheese. They are then put in the oven so the cheese melts. This mix is called Coquille St-Jacques because it is generally served in a shell (either real or made of porcelain), but the contents don't vary too much.
