I found some nice fresh scallops in the wet market recently. Initially I wanted to use them for steamboat but did not do so when I found that their shell break easily. I don't want the shell broken pieces in my steamboat!
I decided to scoop up the scallop meat and use it to cook my vegetable, okra (lady fingers) dish.
Here is my Sambal Okra with Fresh Scallops Recipe.....
Scallops, 10 pcs, remove shells
Okra, 10 pcs, cut into two
Chili paste 1 tablespoon
Shallots, 3 pcs, blended
Belachan, 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Oyster sauce, 1 teaspoon
Dried prawns, 1 tablespoon, deep fried until crispy
Put some vegetable oil into a hot wok. Saute chilli paste, belachan and shallots until fragrant. Add in oyster sauce and salt to taste. Put in the okra and scallops. Stir fry until they are cooked. Take out the Sambal Okra with Fresh Scallops and put it in a serving dish. Garnish with deep fried dried prawns (heh bee) before serving.
