Steamed Tofu and Scallop with Fermented Black Bean

One of the dishes I prepared for dinner last night.

It is a very simple and easy to prepare dish.  Cooking time is very short so it's good for those who are always rushing for time.

  • I box Silken Tofu, cut into thick slices
  • 6 small or 3 big Scallops, slice big scallops into halves

  • 2 teaspoon Fermented Black Bean, quick rinse and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Minced Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Light Soy Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Maggie Seasoning Sauce (optional)
  • Some fresh diced chilli
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil.

How to do it:
  1. Place scallops on tofu and set aside.
  2. Add hot and garlic together into pan (so garlic will not brown too fast).
  3. Stir fry till garlic is fragrant.
  4. Add in the chopped fermented black bean and chilli if using.
  5. Stir fry till fragrant; about half a minute.
  6. Add in sugar and sauces.
  7. Spoon seasoning mixture and place on scallops.
  8. Steam for 4-5 mins or till scallops are thoroughly cooked.
  9. Serve immediately.

  • As the seasoning is pre-cooked, you can adjust the sweetness and saltiness according to you liking.
  • The seasoning can be preparing ahead and top just before steaming.
  • You can replace scallops with small prawns.
