Method

  1. Wash and pat scallops dry with kitchen towel halving them if too large.
  2. In a medium sized bowl, combine salt, pepper, sugar, white wine vinegar, sesame oil, ginger, cornstarch, and egg white and beat until foamy, then add scallops and stir gently to coat well. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  3. Wipe and hull the strawberries and cut into quarters.
  4. In a wok or large heavy based pan, heat the oil and add the scallop mixture. Stir fry over medium high heat for 3-5 minutes, or until just opaque then add mange tout and stir-fry for 1 minute.
  5. Add strawberries and lemon juice and stir-fry for a further 1-2 minutes to heat through.

Serve immediately over plain boiled brown rice.
