I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Scallops with Green Onions & Hoisin
...in your mind.

Scallops with Green Onions & Hoisin

Serves 4 - You know how I feel about using frozen shrimp - I think they’re just great. I’m the same with scallops - buy a bag and keep them in the freezer for a last minute deal. They defrost in about 3 minutes under cold running water. Hoisin is available from ANY supermarket in the Asian food section.


  • 1/2 lb scallops, defrosted and dried on paper towels
  • 1/4 cup Chinese Hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dry sherry
  • 6 scallions (green onions)
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil


  1. Trim green onion ends and cut into 1" pieces
  2. Mix together Hoisin, soy, and sherry
  3. Heat wok with oil until almost smoking
  4. Put in green onions and scallops - stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes until scallops are cooked
  5. Add Hoisin mixture and stir all until thickened and heated through, about a minute
  6. Sprinkle with finely chopped green onion and serve over rice.
