Seafood done right is always a winner at the dinner table. Our simple recipe just call for some light soy sauce and the fragrance for fried garlic, combine with the sweetness of the scallops. It’s also friendly on the wallet (under $20 for 10 scallops around 1kg) with the use of frozen half shelled scallops, which we have to say these days really taste much better than your supermarket counter bought seafood. Just take note of the steaming time base on the size of your scallops, over cooking them definitely put them to waste.
