      Heat wok or large skiller over high heat. Add 1 T. oil and heat until hot. Add snow peas, remaining 2 T. rice wine, and the salt; stir-fry until peas are tender but still bright green, about 2 minutes. Spoon peas around edge of large platter and spoon scallops in center.

      An excellent dish that has the added virtue of not requiring a whole lot of time in the kitchen. I used 1/2 lb of sea scallops for two servings, but made half the sauce, which was really the right quantity for us, with the scallops served over steamed rice. Instead of the snow peas, I used a frozen sugar snap stir fry mix - there are several very good frozen mixes available these days which again simplify preparing meals such as this. Do remember to stir up the oyster sauce mix before adding it to your wok - the cornstarch will have settled. Mr Grumpy ate this with pleasure and without drowning it in additional soy or sriracha sauce. I did use less soy and left out the salt, to reduce the sodium level a bit.

      I made this for myself tonight, and I'm glad I didn't have to wrestle anyone for seconds! It was lovely - sweet sauce, crunchy snow peas (I had them a bit more al dente), delicious scallops - this is a great recipe for the uncertain seafood eater. I had to use white cooking wine instead of sake or rice wine, but followed through with everything else, and didn't have any problem with flavour. Might add some dried red chillis next time for a bit of heat.
