Gingery Scallops and Vegetables
2 teaspoons canola oil
1 pound sea scallops, muscle removed
1 T minced peeled fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups bean sprouts
1 cup fresh snow peas, trimmed and sliced diagonally in half
1 cup thinly sliced red bell pepper
1/2 cup shredded carrots
2 T light coconut milk
1 T packed light brown sugar
1 T reduced-sodium soy sauce
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Swirl in 1 teaspoon of the oil, then add the scallops. Cook, turning once, until golden brown on the outside and just opaque in the center, about 1 minute on each side. Transfer the scallops to a plate, cover, and keep warm.
Return the skillet to the heat. Swirl in the remaining 1 teaspoon of oil, then add the ginger and garlic. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the bean sprouts, snow peas, bell pepper, and carrots; cook until the vegetables are tender-crisp, 2-3 minutes. Stir in the coconut milk, sugar, and soy sauce; cook until the sugar dissolves, 30 seconds. Return the scallops to the pan and toss to combine. Serve at once.
