    Thorsten's Note:

    The scallops are seared before they are poached over hot water. The secret of this recipe is the making of the scallops with a few further ingredients to complement the flavour of the scallops. A wonderful and easy to make chinese appetizer.

      I really like this recipe. I love scallops. I made it twice and, of course, it came out better the second time. Definitely not for picky eaters like my sister. I suggest making extra sauce for dipping and making even more scallops because 6 is just not enough. I put some jarred ginger paste that I had in my fridge in the extra dipping sauce and it was a nice compliment. I suggest serving with some hot ginger tea. It is amazing.

      These were AMA-ZING!!! Let me start by saying I never used to like ginger, and I had never had ginger in a prep like this before, and I love the kick it had. The scallops turned out beautifully. Perfect cooking times. I had always had my scallops seared in a pan only, I like the moistness the steaming added to it, and the way the steaming cooked the scallion and the ginger. And the dipping sauce was fantastic. I didn't do this as an appetizer, I made them for a meal for myself. And what a treat I had. Thanks Thorsten for posting this simple and fantastic little recipe.
