Shoyu (soy sauce) Butter Scallop Bowl

I got home from work, looked in the freezer and found frozen scallops.
What to do with them….I know, grill them and throw them on a bed of rice with some veggies. YES.

Ingredients: 2 Servings
Vegetable oil – for cooking
12 small scallops or so – patted dry
1/4-1/6 onion – thinly sliced
½ bunch of romaine lettuce w/ the stem on – washed and dried
salt and pepper to season the scallops
4 cups of cooked white or brown rice
1 Tbs butter – melted (or more if you’d like)
Soy sauce to drizzle

If you have a grill pan, use it. It works great. If not, a large pan should do.
Sprinkle scallops with salt and pepper. Heat the grill on high, drizzle oil and grill onion just until they brown a bit, set aside. Grill the lettuce just until it’s charred in parts but before they get too wilted (it adds a crunchy texture to the dish), set aside and chop into bite sized pieces. Grill the scallops until they’re browned on both sides but not too dry, set aside and chop into bite sized pieces.

Place a good amount of rice in a bowl, top it with onions, lettuce, then scallop. Drizzle melted butter and soy sauce (not too much – will get too salty) and you’re done!

So easy!


Not that this is healthy but, have you ever tried eating hot white rice w/ a wad (about 1/2 Tbs) of butter and soy sauce drizzled on top? It’s sooooooooooo tasty. STRANGE I know but it’s tasty. Try it.
