    Julie B's Hive's Note:

    Frozen scallops are acceptable for dish if fresh are not available. Remove the shells first if you are using fresh in the Chinese dish. Cook time includes 20-minute standing time. From Ethnic Cuisine.

      *reviewed for Aussie Forum Recipe Swap Oct 09* Loved the fresh asparagus and carrot along with the scallops. Good clear instructions and a breeze to cook. I served with some steamed rice on the side. Just personal preference that I would have liked a little more sauce for the rice. The flavours worked well with the scallops. Photo also to be posted :)
