Scallops in Roasted Chili Sauce (Pla Hoi Prik) Recipes

Ingredients :

5 tbsp vegetable oil

5-6 tbsp sliced garlic cloves

500g bay scallops

2 tbsp roasted red chili paste

2 tbsp chopped coriander (cilantro) leaves

2 tbsp sliced spring onions (scallions), green part only

1 tbsp fish sauce

2 tbsp holy basil leaves

Method :

A very quick yet delicate way of cooking seafood, this dish is popular throughout the gulf region of Thailand. The roasted chili paste is usually made in advance and stored. Dry roasting the chilies until they turn dark brown gives the curry its typical dark maroon color.

Heat the oil in a wok over a high heat. Add the garlic cloves and stir fry until brown. Add the scallops and stir fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the chili paste and heat through. Reduce the heat and add the coriander, spring onions and fish sauce. Stir fry for about 1 minute. Stir in the basil leaves. Serve hot with boiled rice.

Serves 4 - 6
