How to make it

  • To make shrimp broth, add shrimp heads and shells to 1 cup water. Add 1 stalk scallions, 1 slice ginger, 1/4 tsp salt. Allow to boil for 10 minutes then switch to lower heat to simmer while you cook the rest of the ingredients.
  • Season scallops with salt and white pepper. Heat up 2 tbsp oil in wok. Sear each side for 3-5 minutes until golden brown. Set aside.
  • Season shrimp with salt, white pepper and corn flour. Add shrimp to wok. Add oil if necessary. Use spatula to remove the brown bits left by the scallops. Stir fry shrimp and let the shrimp pick up the brown bits. When cooked, set shrimp aside (same plate as scallops) and leave garlic in wok.
  • Add Kai Lan stems to wok and stir fry for a minute or so, then add the leaves. Stir fry for another minute or so until leaves wilt, then add shrimp stock, oyster sauce, and rice wine. Mix well.
  • Create some space in the center of wok. Slowly add corn flour solution to thicken gravy to desired thickness. Stir gravy well to see the consistency.
  • To serve, plate kailan, then arrange scallops and shrimp. Best eaten with plain white rice.

    Kai lan is also known as Chinese broccoli or Chinese kale. It's a tinee weeny bit bitter. The stems are crunchy (if you cook for a short while). Sometimes you have small yellow flowers in a bunch of kai lan. The flowers can be eaten. :)

    Lightooks great. The contrast of colors makes my mouth water. What do you think about adding a light dipping sauce with it
