Method

  • Heat a good slurp of oil in a hot wok (or heavy-bottomed pan) to smoking. Then add the scallops and quickly toss to just sear. Remove.
  • Add a little fresh oil to the wok, if needed, and gently sauté the garlic, ginger and capsicum until just coloured, regularly stirring.
  • Then add about ½ cup stock and a splash each of soy, Chinese wine and rice wine vinegar with the oyster sauce and ground pepper. Stir well and gently simmer until the sauce a glaze is formed.
  • Add the bok choy and spring onions with a little more stock. Briefly cook and then taste for seasoning.
