A true dish combined from the land, air and sea – this dish has a combination of scallops, smoked duck, over a nice serving of asparagus. Not only is it visually appealing, it tastes fantastic.

This recipe is a flavour bomb, thanks to the combination of the ingredients with Lee Kum Kee’s various sauces, primarily the Seafood XO sauce. The wonderful balance of juices from the duck fat pairs with the sweetness of the scallops makes for a whole new level of taste that’s simple to cook for a dinner date for 2 within 20 minutes!
