Spicy Scallops

Some things get hidden away and you forget to post about them. I'm sure this isn't the first time I'm saying this and I'm sure it wont be the last. You remember
Sarah's BBQ? The one from way back in October 2008? Well, one dish that I plain forgot to post about was this one!

I love scallops but they are so darned expensive. I had gone to Sabah on a work trip and had bought some scallops in addition to some large prawns (that I used to make BBQ Prawns and also Baked Prawns but this post is about the scallops and not the prawns, so get back on track! The scallops that I got were the frozen variety and they were also rather small. Still, small scallops are better than No scallops!

This is what I did.

1 onion - chopped
3 cloves garlic - chopped
5 chilli padi (Birds eye chilli) - chopped
handful of curry leaves
300g Scallops
1 Tbsp light Soy Sauce
Black Pepper
Spring Onions for garnishing

Fry the onion and garlic till soft. Add in the chillis and fry till fragrant. Toss in the scallops and cook well. Add in the soy sauce and season with black pepper. In a separate pan, fry the curry leaves till crispy. Toss in with the scallops and garnish with sprin onions before serving.

The scallops were really tasty with a hint of spiciness. The next time, I'd add in more chilli padi or maybe make it in a sambal kind of sauce...

Looks great. Good for company and easy enough on a busy night even.

That sounds really good - the sweetness of the scallops would go so well with the chilli! I have some scallops in the freezer at the moment, but they are the really big ones. I haven#'t decided yet what their fate will be.
