Scallop and Zucchini Stir fry is a simple way to cook Zucchini. It involves sauteing the zucchini with sweet peppers and scallops. Sounds good, doesn’t it? It tastes great too.
Whenever I wanted to reset my palate, I try to eat light dishes. This is one dish that I turn to because I think that this is a light dish and the flavors are mild. I usually eat this plainly without rice or any side dish. However, we all know that this goes better with steamed white rice.
There are other vegetables that you can use aside from zucchini. For example, yellow squash can be a good alternative. You can also substitute the scallop with small to medium shrimp. Some of you might not be fans of fish sauce. That is alright, try to use salt instead.
