Thank you everyone for your supportive words. I really appreciate it!
hi can i ask where did you get your scallops?
i ever used those frozen ones from NTUC.. and after cooking, it shrunk and do not taste that nice
hi min, NTUC sells many types of scallops, which one did u buy? Nowadays, during the CNY season, I see the big and white frozen premium types in a box, I think those look great. About S$20+ for a box. there is another frozen type in a box roughly S$9-13, I personally find those scallops too tiny and quite “fishy”. Off-CNY season, I got those that are in the fridge section (cling wrapped and go by weight) and those are great.
oic.. i get the blue box ones which is only abt $7+. no wonder it shrunk after cooking.
those cling wraps ones can be stored in the fridge for a few days coz i won’t cooked that much at a go
Ok I know which type you bought. Those are really really small to begin with and they aren’t juicy and they have a slight fishy smell. The cling wrap type is more expensive though, it cost about S$1 per scallop, but I personally think it’s worth it. I think you have to consume within 3 days or less since they are already thawed.
Since it’s now the CNY season, you can consider the frozen premium scallops. I think its about S$20+ per box, there’s quite a lot, the scallops looks big (similar to the cling wrap type), and you can thaw what you need and keep the rest for a long time in the freezer. I’m thinking of buying a box too.
Hi there! I was surfing for dishes to do for CNY and came across yours. It’s simple, yet it brings out the best of broccoli & scallops. I couldnt find pacific clams here in the UK but substituted it with prawns and it worked well for me. Thanks for such a great recipe!
happy to hear that you like the recipe, thank you for your comment :)
