Stir Fried Broccoli w/ Scallops

Posted on May 19, 2020

Sometimes a delicious seafood-flavor dish with some sweetness could be really simple!

There are at least 12 steps to make this dish. Hey, don’t think that’s a lot - you will easily tell that each step is extremely trivial. The most important element of this dish I guess is the sugar: sweetness is the key representing the so-called “umami”.


  • Scallops (frozen or fresh)



  • Garlic

  • teaspoon Sugar

  • teaspoon Oyster Sauce

  • 1.5 

    teaspoon Soy Sauce

  • teaspoon Rice wine / White wine


  • Step 1: Chop the garlic into grinded size
  • Step 2: If the scallops are frozen, wash the scallops in water with a pinch of salt for 5 minutes
  • Step 3: Wash the broccoli in water and rest for 10 minutes
  • Step 4: Put the broccoli in boiling water (w/ a little bit salt) for 1 minutes so that broccoli is fully cooked
  • Step 5: Season the scallops with salt and pepper
  • Step 6: Mix the sugar, oyster sauce, soy sauce and one teaspoon of water together. That is the sauce.
  • Step 7: Pre-heat a frying pan with a pinch of olive oil - fry the scallops with medium heat. Take the scallops out after turning golden.
  • Step 8: Put the garlic in the same frying pan
  • Step 9: Add the scallops inside the pan. Add the rice wine/white wine immediately
  • Step 10: Add some water to deglaze the roasted.
  • Step 11: Put in the broccoli
  • Step 12: Add the sauce into the pan and mix
  • Step 13: Finished
