Tamarind Scallops Over Soba Noodles for #FishFridayFoodies


Welcome to the inaugural Fish Friday Foodies, coordinated by Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm. She writes that in the interest of eating healthier in 2016, we'll be sharing fish and seafood recipes on the third Friday of the month. I'm in! That definitely fits into our goals of eating less meat and more fish this year.

I had initially planned to share a recipe with the seafood from our community supported fishery. But, the Precise Kitchen Elf was sick on Tuesday and I was completely befuddled. I missed my pick-up because I didn't know what day of the week it was. Boo! So, I'll write more about Real Good Fish on another post.

As Plan B, I needed something fast. This dish is on the table in less than 20 minutes. Perfect!

Ingredients



Procedure
In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Cook your soba noodles according to the package direction. Ours took 4 minutes. Once cooked, drain and set aside.

In a large, flat-bottom pan, whisk garlic, ginger, turmeric, and tamarind paste into coconut cream until well-combined. Bring to a boil. Place the scallops in the pan in a single layer and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until firm to the touch; it won't take too long. Remove the scallops from the sauce.

To serve, spoon the soba noodles in the sauce (in the pan). Add in the soy sauce and sesame oil. Toss to coat. Portion noodles into individual bowls. Top with cooked scallops. Sprinkle with black sesame seeds. Serve immediately.

    1. Thanks, Sarah, Yes, it was tasty. And you can do the same thing with shrimp or even chunks of fish. So versatile!

  6. That sounds fantastic - I need to try this, do you think I could do it with shrimp? Scallops and I don't always get along so well....
