This recipe is from Delia's How to Cheat at Cooking
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.

Who says healthy food has to be worthy? This lovely steamed trout recipe is packed with freshness and flavour and is a real treat for two.
Soba noodles are made with buckwheat and are traditionally served either hot in soups or cold in salads. The salad version is my favourite and you can, of course, use any green salad leaves in this recipe.
A trip to Thailand inspired Delia to recreate this Asian classic when she got home ... and it was well worth it. Give it a try - it's not one of Thailand's most popular dishes for nothing.
