Pan-seared Scallops in XO Chilli Sauce by Mock Hk

Ingredients and Methods

How to cook the scallops: 
Pat them dry with a clean cloth or dry with a paper towel. I used a non-stick pan to pan fry the scallops. Put the pan over medium-high heat and add a small piece of butter. Add the scallops when the butter starts to melt. Check every minute or so to see if they've started to turn brown. Flip when the underside is a soft golden color. Repeat the same process for the second side. Remove from pan.

How to prepare the XO chilli sauce: 
Chop 1 pc of shallot, 1 pc of garlic and 1 pc of red chilli. Heat up a wok with 2 tbsp of oil and stir fry the chopped shallot, garlic and chilli until fragrant. Add 1 tbsp of XO sauce and stir fry for another minute. Place scallops on plate and top up with the XO sauce. Ready to serve.
