Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.

Asian Scallops

These are such a treat. If you buy the scallops prepared, they require just 5 minutes prep and then 5 minutes in the oven. If you can’t source scallops in the shell, simply stack the ingredients in little piles on a baking tray lined with baking parchment, or you could pan fry the scallops for a minute on each side and then add all the remaining ingredients to the pan for 1-2 minutes.

Makes: 6

Prep: 5 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes
Total: 10 minutes

Difficulty: easy



6 King Scallops
30g fresh rice noodles
20g samphire or fine asparagus tips
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
Juice of half a lime
1 tsp honey
½ tsp grated garlic
½ tsp grated ginger
¼ red chilli finely chopped
1 spring onion cut into shreds


Wash the scallops under cold water and pat them dry.

Add 2 tsp rice noodles to each scallop shell or ramekin then top with a few pieces of samphire (or an asparagus tip) and a scallop.

Mix together all the remaining ingredients apart from the spring onions in a bowl and drizzle a tsp of the dressing over each scallop.

Put in the oven at 200 (180 fan) for 5 minutes. Finish by topping with the spring onion shreds.
