    JanetB-KY's Note:

    Posting for zwt 2006 (Asian region). I love Scallops and can't wait to make this one myself. Looks fairly easy and quite tasty if the ingredients are any indication.

    1. 1
      Rinse the scallops under running water and pat dry.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, prepare the cornstarch slurry (mix together the cornstarch and the 4 tbsps. water) and set aside.
    3. 3
      In a separate bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, oyster sauce, rice wine or sherry or rice vinegar, and sugar to form the sauce; set aside.
    4. 4
      Heat a wok or large skillet over medium-high to high heat; add the oil to the heated wok; when the oil is hot, add the garlic cloves and half the green onion; Stir-fry until the garlic is aromatic but not browned as that will give it a bitter edge.
    5. 5
      Add the red bell pepper and the scallops and stir-fry for about 2 minutes, taking care not to overcook the scallops. Add the sauce and simmer the scallops and pepper in the sauce, uncovered, for about 5 minutes.
    6. 6
      Give the cornstarch and water slurry a quick re-stir; add in the middle of the wok, stirring quickly to thicken; mix with the other ingredients.
    7. 7
      Stir in the remainder of the green onion and garnish with the chopped cilantro.
    8. 8
      Serve over rice.

      Made this recipe for Valentines Day. It looked beautiful..very nice presentation. Unfortunately, we found it a little bland. Sorry to submit a negative review, but that's how we felt about it.

      I made this recipe tonight. From what I saw in the ingredients, it sounded good. I didn't have the Oyster sauce, so instead I used rice vingar and I used the 2 Tbls of sherry, just to make sure the liquid measurements were right. I also forgot to add the sugar and the recipe was still awesome. When I make it again, I will probably leave out the sugar. Very easy to make; little time involved! Thanks JanetC-KY--Great recipe!

      Excellent recipe - I had unexpected company arrive- didn't have enough scallops so I defrosted some prawns and added them- Perfect! I used Sherry for the sauce and it was delicious. I was lucky to find large wild Canadian scallops - we rarely see them any more. Thanks JanetC-KY this is a repeat recipe
