Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking

Method

First, put the lemongrass, ginger, sugar, soy and sesame oil into a mini-chopper and chop small. Heat a large frying-pan, then add the sesame seeds and shake them now and then over the heat for about 3 minutes until they are a deep golden-brown.

Then transfer them to a plate and keep on one side.

Transfer the lemongrass-and-ginger mixture to the frying-pan, add the frozen scallops, bring up to simmering point and simmer gently, uncovered, for 10 minutes or till the scallops are opaque in the centre (cut one open to check).

After that, remove the cooked scallops with a slotted spoon and keep them warm whilst you add the noodles and sugar-snap peas to the pan and toss together for 2-3 minutes in the sauce. Pile on to a serving dish, top with the scallops, then the spring onions and toasted sesame seeds.
