Baked Scallops

I bought some nice looking scallops in their shells, and for the first time I forgot to ask the fishmonger to remove and clean them up properly for me! Hey, turns out it's even better to do it yourself! Well, the scallops might not look perfect but, they are really, really fresh and tasty after cooking.

Can you imagine? I can still see and feel the scallops moving while trying cleaning them? I did startle a little bit at first, but it was all okay when I got the hang of it after removing few more scallops from their shells. And the thinking of gobble them up too! LOL!

The shells are so pretty, so I have decided to bake the scallops in them. Another thing, I noticed the color of the roe are different too. I wonder why? I like the darker color ones, they are tastier.

Baked Scallops


8 Scallops in their shells, cleaned
2 Tbsp Japanese Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Mirin
1 Tbsp grated Ginger
3 Tbsp Peanut Oil


Preheat the oven at 180˚C (350˚F).

Arrange the scallops in their shells in a baking tray.

Divide the ginger, soy sauce and mirin equally onto the scallops. Drizzle with some peanut oil.

Close the scallops with the other half of the shells.

Bake them for about 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately!

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
