Scallop Noodles

This is seared sea scallops served with wheat noodles that's been tossed with spicy Sichuan sauce and blanched Hong Kong Kai Lan vegetables. If you prefer, you can always substitute with your favorite vegetables and add a fried egg. A simple and yet so satisfying noodles meal!

Scallop Noodles


12 to 15 Large Sea Scallops

350 g Dried Wheat Noodles
1 Bunch Hong Kong Kai Lan, blanched
Fresh Coriander Leaves, chopped
2 Red Chilies, sliced (optional)
Peanut Oil

Spicy Sichuan Sauce

1 Tbsp Peanut Oil

1 tsp Sichuan Peppercorn

3 Cloves Garlic, chopped (about 1 Tbsp)

½ inch Ginger, finely chopped (about 1 Tbsp)

4 Stalks Scallions (Green Onions/Spring Onions) white part only, chopped (reserved the green part for sprinkling)

2 ½ Tbsp Soy Sauce

1 Tbsp Dark Soy Sauce

6 Tbsp Chili Oil with sediment

2 ½ Tbsp Sesame Paste


In a wok or saucepan over high heat, add peanut oil and mix in the peppercorns. Stir-fry until fragrant and add garlic, ginger, and scallions and stir-fry for about 30 to 40 seconds. Reduce the heat to low, mix in the soy sauce, dark soy sauce, chili oil, and sesame paste and simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes.

Prepare the scallops: Heat a cast-iron or non-stick pan. When the pan is hot add about 1 Tbsp or oil and sear the scallops in 2 to 3 batches. Turn scallops once, and remove from heat when scallops are just cooked, about 1 minute per side.

Cook the noodles according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Drain the noodles and divide among 4 to 6 bowls, add the sauce (according to taste) and toss well. Top with scallops, vegetables, chopped scallions, coriander, red chilies, and 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.
