    The pan seared scallops look beautiful! Question: What else would you use Japanese mirin for? Can this be substituted with any other wine like rice wine or shao xing wine etc?

    Hey Simcooks,

    I use Mirin because those are Japanese mushrooms. For substitute, maybe use some sake…but rice wine is OK too. Mirin has a sweet taste, but sake and rice wine don’t.

    btw … that’s the most appetising way to sear scallops. U did it real well and sad to say … if that was main course … I will have to have 3 helpings :D

    I was procrastinating to buy some scallops and just simply searing them but was thinking it was too plain to eat as a main dish. Now I found a solution. Yours! But I may have to variate somehow.I don’t have Mirin as well unless they come in small pack (“just use once” type)….hahahhaha
    Best wishes for 2007, and the years ahead!

    Audrey – Happy New Year to you too! I know the serving is not big enough…so add in a home-made dessert (recipe coming soon) and you should be in good shape!

    Team BSG – yes, quick quick, you still have time…it’s not yet New Year yet in the western hemisphere.

    Tigerfish – Happy New Year to you too; I look forward to seeing your variation on your site. :)

    This main course looks awesome! I can’t agree more on the elegant part, absolutely perfect for a romantic dinner :)

    Chris and WMW – Happy New Year to you too!

    Babe – I know…US is great for big fat juicy creamy and succulent scallops. Malaysian ones are all frozen and tiny. :(

    Chubby Panda – Happy New Year. It looks like you had a blast in NoCal.

    Budding Cook – Happy New Year too.

    Linnish – You should try it.

    Keropok Man – Your Malay is good, I think you are a Malaysian not a Singaporean. LOL!

    thank you! I always wondered how to perfectly sear scallops. But I didn’t know what chili-garlic sauce to use so I chose a Chinese one. Unfortunately it had too much vinegar. Would a Thai chili-garlic sauce be better? Which sauce and brand do you recommend?
