Have You Ever Shucked a Scallop?

On last Thursday's episode of Hell's Kitchen, Gordon Ramsay showed the chefs how to shuck scallops. I found the brief lesson to be incredibly informative, as I'd never shucked a scallop before. Have you?

There should be an option for "I eat shellfish but don't plan to shuck them"

I bet I'd suck at shucking.

Instead of a protective glove, I'd need a protective body suit and a helmet!

Don't eat 'em. The only thing I've ever shucked was corn.

I've shucked oysters, but never scallops. It's on my list of things to do.

Do clams count? I really have no desire to learn how to shuck an oyster or scallop. All I can envision is clumsy me slicing my palms open.

since i don't eat fish, i haven't ever shucked, but i've seen it done a million times. i guess that it's a skill to be able to do it quickly.

I don't really want to learn how to do a scallop, because I don't feel like I'll need to, but I really want to learn to shuck an oyster.
