1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
1 clove garlic, minced
1 small carrot, peeled and sliced

10 min › Ready in:
Bring the wine, vegetable stock, ginger and garlic to a gentle boil in a large frying pan.
Stir in the carrot and leek, and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the scallops and prawns. Stir in the cubes of butter. Continue cooking until butter has melted and the scallops are cooked through.
Sprinkle with chives, and season with salt and pepper to serve.
I know this may be a stupid question but should I keep the heat low when adding the fish?

I had a few scallops I didn't really know what to do with, so thought I'd give this a try. I only added about a third of the butter with dry vermouth instead of the wine. I served it over spaghetti. It was a nice & quick meal after a day at work.
