Scallops

Posted by mamabok | Canadian,Cooking,Seafood,Western | Thursday 26 March 2009 3:46 pm




For those out there who don’t know by now .. i lived in a fishing community.  Nova Scotia is full of fishermen and full of fishing plants.  Therefore, you can get seafood fairly cheap most times.  Well.. the salmon is still darn expensive .. but scallops and shrimp are darn cheap.  The scallops are a good chunky size here.. and nothing beats cooking them at home.. because they are cheap and very easy to cook.  Some like it with butter.. some like to grill them.. as for me.. i like them with my sambal tumis from good friends Charmaine & Barb.

I like my seafood fresh.. so i cooked them as soon as i buy them.. that way, you can feel the softness as well as the freshness.  But like i said, scallops are darn easy to cook.. with some garlic.. and butter.. for just a few mins.. and it’s ready to eat.  I know scallops are expensive back home.. therefore, i really enjoy it here – because they are darn cheap.

    I wish I can get cheap Scallops. I love seafood. I usually make seafood fish maw soup. That’s with scallop, shrimp, squid, fish maw, egg whites, and crab meat. Then I put chili and red viniger. Yum Yum.
