American.foodie's picture
Stir fried scallops and vegetables is a spicy and tangy seafood recipe. Prepared with a marinade of lemon juice, the scallops are cooked with vegetables like carrots, pea pods and green onions with added mushrooms. Flavored with thyme and garlic, the stir fried scallops are sherried to finish and are wonderfully savory.
