Maybe next time I'll keep it. I heard the wing meat is like scallops.
I've often wondered the same thing! Like you mentioned, I heard from a lot of sources that the wings taste like scallops, and have even heard that some seafood restaurants will sell them as scallops. (I'd think that would get them in trouble).... I also thought it was a joke, to get people to try them; kinda like a 'Snipe Hunt' in the 1950's era Boy Scouts.
Here's a link to 'Darcissel' who cooked some up. Is she candid about her opinions? Or is this a 'Snipe Hunt'?
