Recipe Ingredients for Five-Spice Scallops

1/2 pound cooked scallops, net from 1 pound wet sea scallops, quartered (118082--large dry not in DB)
2 teaspoons canola oil
2 3/10 g (1 teaspoon) five-spice powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for Five-Spice Scallops

  1. Preheat broiler.

  2. Toss scallops with oil, five-spice powder and salt. Broil on a baking sheet until cooked through, 4 to 5 minutes. Serve with toothpicks.

  3. Notes: We prefer "dry" sea scallops (not treated with sodium tripolyphosphate, or STP). Scallops treated with STP ("wet" scallops) are mushy, less flavorful and will not brown properly.

  4. Often a blend of cinnamon, cloves, fennel seed, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns, five-spice powder was originally considered a cure-all miracle blend encompassing the five elements (sour, bitter, sweet, pungent, salty). Look for it in the supermarket spice section.
