      RECIPE TITLE "Crispy Scallops With Garlic Sauce" recipe from Everyday Chinese Cooking

    yields Serves 4 time--- difficulty easy

    You may deep-fry the scallops ahead of time. Simply refry or reheat in the oven before serving.


    • 1 pound sea scallops
    • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
    • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
    • 1 small egg white
    • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons cornstarch, divided
    • 1/2 teaspoon dark soy sauce
    • 4 cups + 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
    • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
    • 3/4 cup Chicken Broth (page 52)
    • 3/4 cup white vinegar
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 2 green onions, diced


    Remove the muscle on the outside of each scallop and rinse the scallops in cold water; drain thoroughly. Pat the scallops dry with paper towels. In a medium bowl, mix ½ teaspoon salt, the pepper, sesame oil, egg white, and 1 tablespoon cornstarch. Stir in the scallops, cover, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

    In a small bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 1 tablespoon water, and the dark soy sauce and set aside. In a small saucepan over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and the garlic. Cook until the garlic is fragrant. Add the chicken broth, vinegar, sugar, and ¼ teaspoon salt and cook to boiling. Stir in the cornstarch mixture and return to boiling. Remove from the heat.

    Heat 4 cups vegetable oil, 1 ½ inches deep, in a wok to 350°F. In a medium bowl, mix ½ cup water, the flour, the remaining ¼ cup cornstarch, the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, the baking soda, and the remaining ½ teaspoon salt. Stir the scallops into the batter until well coated. Fry 8 scallops at a time for 2 minutes, or until light brown, turning occasionally; drain on paper towels. Continue until all the scallops are cooked. The scallops can be cooked to this point ahead of time.

    Increase the oil temperature to 375°F. Refry the scallops for about 1 minute, or until golden brown; drain on paper towels. Meanwhile, reheat the garlic sauce and gently mix with the scallops. Garnish with the diced green onions and serve immediately.
