6 Servings

  • marinade:
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup Chinese rice wine
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons minced peeled fresh gingerroot
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 pounds bay scallops, tough muscles removed, if necessary
  • 1 pound broccoli rabe (1 bunch), hollow or coarse stems discarded, stalks and leaves cut diagonally into 1 1/2-inch sections
  • 2 red bell peppers, cut into thin strips
  • 1/3 cup water
  • In a small saucepan stir cornstarch into water to dissolve and stir in remaining marinade ingredients. Bring mixture to a boil, whisking constantly, and simmer, whisking, 1 minute. Cool marinade for 5 minutes.

  • Rinse scallops and drain. In a bowl toss scallops with half of marinade and chill, covered, at least 1 hour or overnight. Reserve remaining marinade.

  • Wash broccoli rabe and drain well in a colander.

  • Heat wok or a deep 12-inch skillet over high heat until hot and add oil. Drain scallops and discard used marinade. Heat oil until it begins to smoke and stir-fry drained scallops for 1 to 2 minutes until just cooked. Remove scallops to a plate and keep warm.

  • Add bell peppers to wok and stir-fry 1 minute. Add broccoli rabe and stir-fry until wilted slightly and bright green, about 1 minute. Add water, tightly cover, and cook until greens are tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add reserved marinade, stirring, until vegetables are coated well and sauce has thickened. Transfer vegetables to a platter and top with scallops.
