How to make it

  • Wash scallops and pat dry so that you can sear properly or moisture will cause scallops to steam. Season scallops lightly with salt, pepper and corn flour.
  • Heat up 2 tbsp vegetable oil in wok. Medium heat. When oil is hot enough, use tongs to transfer scallops to wok. Sear scallops for 3-5 minutes on each side or until they turn golden brown. Set aside.
  • Cut kai lan stems (at their cross section) into small pieces. Add kai lan pieces and smashed garlic to wok and allow to cook for about 2 minutes. Set aside kai lan, leaving garlic in the wok.
  • Add cooked rice to wok and use spatula to mix the rice with the tasty brown bits left in the wok by the scallops.
  • Make a small “well” in the center of the wok. Add egg white and mix well with rice. Add dried mini anchovies and mix well.
  • Cut scallops into quarters. Transfer scallops, kai lan and green onions to wok. Add a few dashes of white pepper. Mix well and serve.

    I've never tried using scallops in my fried rice dishes before. Lobster yes, scallops no! I must say that this sounds like a fabulous dish and I will definitely try this recipe. Thank you for taking the time to post your recipe for all of us!

    Awesome recipe! I bought some very large scallops and replaced the anchovies with fish sauce. It turned out great! I also added some thawed peas and diced carrot and what a meal! Thank you for the recipe. I have to try some of your other recipes. I just joined and will post some of my favorites later on this weekend. C-ya TC-Snag

    I have dried scallops which I use very often for Chinese soup. I'll try that with the fried rice next time! I've seen similar recipes using dried scallops. Thanks for the tip!
