I wanted to make something healthy for the Chinese grand prix, as there is a lot of bad press at the moment about Chinese food – too much salt and sugar. I know that this is not true of real Chinese food, I spent three weeks there on holiday and lost half a stone eating like a king, so I think our western version of Chinese food is the problem.

I found this delightful recipe from the Hairy Bakers Asian Adventures. So beautiful and delicate looking, the greens of the vegetables contrasting with the shellfish and the chilli.

You will notice that my scallops and prawns were not exactly ‘kings’ but the meal still tasted wonderful and we served ours with rice noodles.

Steps

1
Done

Heat the groundnut oil in a wok until smoking.

2
Done

When hot, add the garlic and ginger cook for one minute, or until soft.

3
Done

Add the prawns to the garlic and ginger, fry for one minute, tossing the wok or stirring the prawns with a spoon a couple of times.

4
Done

Season the scallops with salt and pepper. Lay the scallops round the edge of the hot wok, to get a little colour on the sides.

5
Done

Toss the wok or gently turn the seafood over, then add the rice wine.

6
Done

Add all the prepared vegetables and gently toss until the choi sum and pak choi have slightly wilted - this will take a further couple of minutes

7
Done

Add the red chilli and light soy sauce, to taste.

8
Done

Divide the mixture into two bowls and drizzle half a teaspoon of sesame oil over each portion. Serve at once.
