Scallop Stir Fry Recipe With Green Peas

Number of servings (yield): 4


  • 2 lbs scallops
  • 1 lb frozen green peas
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper


  1. Put green peas in a microwave-safe bowl. Thaw in a microwave on a “Defrost” setting for 7 minutes. Check to see if they are completely defrosted – if not, defrost for several more minutes.
  2. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring periodically, for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the scallops and cook, stirring periodically, for 5 minutes (or until no longer transculent). Cooked scallops have white opaque color.
  4. Add green peas, soy sauce, garlic and red pepper. Stir. Cook, stirring periodically, for 4 minutes.
  5. Taste to see if it’s salty enough.  If it needs more salt, add more soy sauce to taste.
  6. Remove the scallop stir-fry from heat and serve.
