The best way to thaw out scallops is to take them out of their packaging and place them on a tray or plate to thaw out overnight in the fridge. This way they defrost evenly, and you can even set them on a tea towel to soak up any excess water. If you're wanting to defrost them quickly you can take them out of the packaging and defrost them in a warm bowl of water.
