Scallops with Pea Pods

Chef.Foodie's picture
  Green onion 1 (Including Some Top)
  Shiitake mushrooms 3 Ounce, cut into thin strips
  Scallops 3⁄4 Pound, rinsed and cut in bite-size pieces
  Ginger slices 3⁄4 Inch
  Salad oil 5 Teaspoon
  Soy sauce 4 Teaspoon
  Dry sherry 2 Teaspoon
  Edible pod peas 1⁄2 Pound, ends and strings removed, rinsed well but not patted dry

Cut onion lengthwise in thin strips, then crosswise in 1-inch pieces.
Reserve some of the onion slivers for garnish; place remainder in a shallow 1 1/2-quart microwave-proof dish and add mushrooms, scallops, and ginger.
Stir together oil, soy, and sherry until blended; pour over scallops and let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes.
Spread scallops out in a single layer.
Cover with wax paper and microwave on HIGH (100%) for 3 minutes (stirring after 2 minutes) or until scallops are opaque throughout.
Let stand for 4 minutes.
Meanwhile, place peas (with water that clings to them) in a 1-quart microwave-proof dish.
Cover with lid or heavy-duty plastic wrap and microwave on HIGH (100%) for 3 minutes (stirring after 2 minutes).
Let stand for 1 minute, then place in a serving dish.
Remove and discard ginger from scallop mixture; spoon scallop mixture over peas.
Garnish with reserved onion slivers.
