(Chinese recipes, prepare authentic Chinese food now!)

Scallops on the half shell are hard to find, as far as I know. I have been searching high and low for them for quite some time now. I asked, I looked, I googled, but I hadn’t found any stores that sell them in SoCal–until I found the seafood store that I mentioned in my crawfish post. (The seafood store sells live crawfish, scallops on the half shell, cockles, various fresh oysters, crab legs, etc.)

I love regular scallops (especially the untreated ones), but scallops on the half shells are–in my opinion–better, tastier, and prettier! Plus, I can take great pictures with the scallops strutting in their half-shells.

Anyway, to preserve the most original flavors of these scallops, I opted to steam them with the simplest of ingredients: soy sauce and garlic oil. Succulent, sweet, and delicious…

Cook’s notes:

As different brand of soy sauce has different sodium level, please taste the soy sauce mixture so it’s not too salty. If it’s too salty, add more sugar or a little water to neutralize the saltiness. Personally, I use Kim Lan soy sauce.
For the garlic oil, dish it out as soon as the chopped garlic turns light brown. They will continue to cook in the oil and will eventually turn golden brown.
