Yes, you can absolutely freeze fresh scallops. We have found the best method is to place them in a ziploc freezer bag and submerge it (open) in water to get all of the air out. Once the air is out, seal it and lay it out flat. You've created a homemade vacuum sealed bag. Place it flat in the freezer for up to 6-8 weeks.
