This morning as usual go to the fishmonger,I was so surprised to see fresh scallops with the shells intact. this is the first time I ever see this in the wet market since I started doing marketing as young as 12 years old. I was so excited, me and my whole family like scallops. Its very cheap too. It cost me only RM 8 for a kg. The fishmonger helps me to choose the bigger the possible for me.
I gather all the ingredients as bellow,
1 tbs taucu(fermented bean paste),
3 pips of garlic,
1 red chili,
1 inch ginger
1 tsp sugar,
1 tbs sesame oil,
1 tbs oyster sauce,
2 tbs cooking wine.
2 tbs cooking oil,
Chopped basil/spring onion(garnish)
Chop the garlic, slice the shallots, cut the ginger and chop into fine pieces, cut the chili into small slices and set aside.
Heat up the oil in a wok, put in shallots, garlic, ginger and chili. Stir fry until aromatic.
Lastly stir in the scallops, stir fry until the scallops are cooked, about 2 minutes. Off the fire and add in the basil and have a quick stir. Scoop out and serve hot with rice.
Oh the scallops are so fresh and so sweet, taste yummy.
