Last night we celebrated my mother and grandmother in-law’s birthdays. Eating with my mother in-law is always a real treat as my father in-law is a HUGE seafood lover. I happen to enjoy it as well and can appreciate that every meal must have some seafood component.
The entire meal was fantastic. We went to our favorite neighborhood haunt 張記 Cheung Kei which you can read more about here. One of my new favorite things about this restaurant is that they will let you bring in your own food and they will cook it for you. We do this mostly with fish that my father in-law catches but this time it was my brother in-law who brought the goodies. He brought 2 fish which were smooth and delicious but the star of the evening was the scallops.
My favorite way to have scallops is steamed in their shells with garlic, some rice noodles, and a dusting of cilantro. YUMMY!
Any other preparation of scallop that I MUST try?
