Ammonia Tasting Scallops?

I recently ordered seared sea scallops at a local restaurant.
When they came they had a distinctive ammonia odor and were not edible. I sent them back and another batch were the same. What caused this?


Can't say for sure on your scallops, but I can tell you that scallops with an ammonia smell are going bad.
