QUICK & SIMPLE REUNION DINNER RECIPES – MISO BUTTER SCALLOPS AND BROCCOLI WITH SCALLOPS

By

Hi there,

I was testing out some Reunion Dishes at home in anticipating for coming Chinese New Year. While I was at Carrefour over the weekends, there were already lots of frozen seafood on sale, and I spotted these really juicy looking scallops from the promotion corner.

So I have decided to cook up 2 dishes using scallop, both Chinese & Japanese style.

For Chinese I have cooked up a scallop with broccoli sauteed and for Japanese, I have prepared a miso butter scallop which goes very well with rice dishes.

For Miso Butter Scallops, you will need following ingredients :

  • Frozen scallops x 1 pack
  • Japanese sweet cooking wine mirin x 1 table spoon
  • Miso x 1 – 2 spoon depending on your likings. (white miso or red miso can be used too)
  • Butter x 1/2 cm slice

Directions :

1) Heat oil + butter under low heat on a non stick frying pan

(Tips : Pour oil first on the pan and then place the butter inside the oil will avoid butter burning in the pan)

Actually there is also an even quicker way, what you need to do is to microwave the butter + miso + cooking wine in a bowl until all sauces are mixed well together.

Then sauteed the scallops and pour the sauce into the pan, Viola, easy huh?

You can also place some cheese on the scallop and baked it for a further 1 min until the cheese become slightly burnt and crispy, goes very well with rice or bread. 🙂

As for ingredients on Scallop with Broccoli, you will require :

  • Broccoli x 1
  • Frozen scallops x 1 pack
  • Carrots x 1
  • Scallop 1 pack
  • Fish sauce x 1 table spoon
  • Chinese cooking wine x 1 table spoon
  • Crushed garlic x 3 cloves (optional, but I think it adds a lot of flavours to it, and compliments very well)

I find pouring in some cooking wine in this dish does makes a difference, so although you don’t see the picture of the wine, please remember to pour in some before you turn off the heat 🙂
