Method

  1. SCALLOPS: Mix the ingredients together, apart from the scallops, to make the marinade. Place the scallops on a tray and brush with the marinade. Repeat every 15 mins until serving.
  2. CHILLI JAM: In oil heat the chillies and onion, sweat down for 10 mins, then add the water and cook until dry. Add the soy sauce and sugar and reduce by 1/2. Set into mould and freeze. Once frozen, roll in flour, coat with egg and cover in panko and repeat.
  3. PICKLED VEG: Place the radish, fennel and cucumber into pickling liquor. Drain after 10 mins. Lightly fry the pak choi.
  4. CRACKER: Add the water to the rice flour a little at a time. Once cool, knead it into golfball-sized patties, flatten and steam for 30 minutes. Smash up the patties with a mortar and pestle until smooth. Knead into ping pong-sized balls. Sandwich between 2 sheets of parchment paper or plastic film and roll out to 2mm thick. Brush with soy sauce and cook at 150°C for 20 mins.
