Chinese Salt & Pepper Scallops With Egg Fried Rice

This  was one of Maria’s favorite dishes. Whenever we went to have chinese food at a restaurant or when she wanted to have something special at home, she would ask for salt & pepper scallops or salt & pepper shrimp.
So, enjoying this meal tonight was a bittersweet affair. I really loved the food, but it is so damn tough to be reminded of a lost loved one all day long, by everything one see’s, hear’s and does, even by the food one eat’s. At least I had Bella next to me , sharing the food and giving me good company 🙂

For the scallops, season with kosher saltfive spice powderwhite pepper,  ground szechuan peppercorn and granulated garlic. Mix egg white and rice flour into a thin batter, dredge scallops in it and saute in peanut oil until cooked almost through. Remove and rest on absorbent paper until serving.

For the rice, saute garlic paste, finely diced onion and grated ginger in peanut oil until fragrant. Add day-old rice and fry until rice starts to puff. Make a well, add more peanut oil and scramble some whisked eggs in it until set. Add sliced scallion, kosher salt, white pepper and sesame oil. Stir fry until all ingredients are well mixed. Check seasoning. Adjust if necessary.

To serve, top the rice with scallops and sprinkle with finely sliced scallions

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !   (even when it’s sad sometimes)

  1. Chef Hans,
    I find it very awkward to express myself in such an open forum because, I am still working through my own morning process. BUT here it goes…. Please allow yourself to move through your morning process in your own time, because it is YOUR time. Your dear Maria holds a beloved place in your life and in your heart that no one else can know. I am finding it’s not the “holidays or the big events” that blindside me, it’s the everyday stuff. It is missing my love next to me in bed, his touch, his kisses, his laughter. What I miss above all, is the quite hours in the middle of the night, when we would lay enfolded in each other arms and talk about our dreams. I admire and commend you for how you have continued with your blog. You are pretty awesome in my book Chef!!! If you ever want to bend an ear I am here 24×7 @ 210-269-2580. Live is wonderful and filled with incredible opportunities and adventures.
    Take care! =) D
    P.S. Beautiful dish!! only regret…. LOL…. it’s not on my table. It is impossible to eat the picture 😉
