Thai Jumbo Scallops With Massaman Curry Sauce

Jumbo sea scallops are tender and taste excellent with a massaman curry. This dish is similar to the ones found in Thai restaurants that use a jumbo prawn with onions and avocado. The jumbo scallops are a nice switch that you can make at home.


Jumbo sea scallops 1⁄2 Pound
Onions 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs) , diced
Avocado 1⁄2



1 Heat a pan to medium-high heat.

2 Add in the scallops and stir fry for about 3-5 minutes

3 While the scallops are cooking, slice 1/2 of an avocado into thin slices and place on a plate.

4 Once the scallops are cooked, transfer them on the plate with avocado.

5 In the same pan, stir-fry the onions.

6 Cook the onions for about 1 minute and then add the massaman curry sauce.

7 Cook the massaman curry sauce and onions together for about two minutes.

8 At this point the sauce should be at serving temperature.

9 Pour the sauce with onions over the scallops.


10 Serve at once with Thai Jasmine Rice (optional)
