Pan seared scallops with brown butter and herbs in this recipe got all savoury goodneess. The herbs infused brown butter for searing the Hokkaido scallops got nutty aromas with herbs burst of refreshing flavour. I love brown butter, no one could ever regret the brown butter in any dish, especially when it’s using for cooking seafood like my recently Roasted Spinny Lobster with Garlic Brown Butter Recipe. Making brown butter is a little bit tricky, you should know that brown butter made from regular butter that heated until the butter’s milk content solidified and browned, a little longer cooking made the brown butter turn into black burn butter.  To making the herbs brown butter, cut up the butter into pieces and place in a heavy bottom skillet. Melt the butter on medium low heat and swirl it goodly, allow the butter to foam up and recede. Watch carefully. After a few minutes, the milk solids will form and sink to the bottom. Once the milk solids begin to turn brown caramel-colored, the butter will have a lovely nutty aroma and then you need to add herbs and olive oil to slow the cooking process a little bit and prevent the brown butter got burn.  Add your patted dry Hokkaido to herbs brown  butter sauce.  To perfectly seared the scallops,  do not overfilled the skillet to let some space beetween the scallops to let the steam escape. Flip the scallops once after the bottom side of the Hokkaido scallops turn brown and crusty, then let the other side browned too. You want the inside of your seared Hokkaido scallops medium rare when you remove it from the pan, the remaining heat continue to cooking it untill medium done.

seared scallops with balsamic vinegar reduction mushrooms soy sauce recipe

I served my seared Hokkaido scallops with herbs brown butter with balsamic reduction sauce, but not a  regular balsamic reduction. I add infused the balsamic reduction with flavour of caramelized onion and deglazed with mushooms light soy sauce. I found  a small bottle of ready to use mushrooms infused light soy sauce for steaming fish in chinese grogeries. To made balsamic and mushrooms soy sauce reduction add a tablespoon of oil in a sauce pan, sautee chopped onion until caramelized, then pour a half cup of balsamic vinegar and a half cup of mushrooms infused soy sauce, bring it to boil over medium heat then add half teaspoonfull of sugar.. Once the sauce boil, turn down the heat so that boil reduces to a simmer. Stir occasionally and allow to simmer until the vinegar and the soy sauce has reduced by at least half (thin consistency reduction) or more (thick syrupy consistency). Never increase the heat to fasten the reduction process, unless you want to be left with a stiff, hardened candy mess. I like my balsamic reduction very thin, so i can mix it with the remaining herbs brown butter for searing the Hokkaido scallops.

Steamed Sea Scallop with Black Bean Sauce is really simple and easy to replicate at home. It’s preferred to use the live scallop for this recipe, you can shuck the scallop and discard the yellowish intenal organ, but you can use the fresh scallop too.

Recipe Steamed Sea Scallop with Black Bean Sauce and Served with Rice Glass Vermicelli/ Bihoon Recipe

The ingredients of black bean sauce for steaming sea scallop is similiar to my Steamed Crab or Steamed Tiger Grouper Fish with Tofu. Basic ingredients for plack bean sauce is  fermented black beans paste, garlic, shallots, lemongrass, ginger, salt and pepper use for the sauce.  Chopped chili added to give a nice hot kicking flavour, besides, you can improved the black bean paste with dried shrimp, dried scallop and other savoury and umami dried seafood ingredients to enrich the flavour. Watch over the saltiness level of the black bean paste since it could be very salty and it’s not necessary to add any salt anymore. This black bean recipe is suits as a dressing  for eeg, tofu, rice porridge or even aubergines. Black bean sauce is actually made of salted and fermented black bean called doucitausi or tauco hitam in Bahasa. Black bean paste is ready to use, it’s available in a glass jar on most asian groceries in your town. My favourite  fermented black bean paste is Lee Kum Kee Brand

 Perfecly cooked steamed sea scallop texture is superb, a combination of  bounchy, crunchy and yet easy to chew. The natural juice is come out and it’s taste superior. Make sure you use the dry scallop for steaming, the wet scallop will be ruined the whole dish with totally chewy and rubbery scallop and  the juice is tasteless. Trust me, since i had to try that.
