Quick doesn’t have to be boring – especially when it comes to food. Top quality ingredients will give you amazing tasting food, and you don’t always have to spend hours preparing it with a long list of ingredients. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy making complex meals too, but here’s a fast food experience that will be ready in less time than it takes to wait for a food delivery.
Ingredients per person
- 4-6 fresh scallops
- 2 cups of washed spinach (roughly chopped)
- About 6 mushrooms, sliced not too thinly
- 1 large clove of garlic, crushed
- A little oil for frying
- 1 tablespoon of black bean sauce
- Soy sauce
- Lemon or lime juice
Start by gently frying the mushrooms in a little oil and when they start to soften, add the garlic and spinach and cook until the spinach wilts.
On a hot griddle or under a hot grill, quickly cook the scallops on both sides (this can take less than a minute per side).
Stir the black bean sauce and about a teaspoon of soy sauce into the spinach and mushrooms. Serve the scallops on top of the vegetables with a little squeeze of lemon or lime juice.
