Quick stir fry broccoli with scallops. A popular and healthy vegetable dish especially during Chinese New Year or family gatherings.

Dishes served during Chinese New Year are often meaningful to ensure a good and auspicious start to a new year. Just like many other things symbolic with the Chinese community, one of the must have dishes selected for the reunion dinner is Broccoli with Braised Mushrooms and Scallops. Broccoli, which looks like flowers on trees signifies the blossoming of new beginnings. The scallops represent opportunities in abundance while the mushrooms signify fortune in leaps and bounds. There you are, each ingredient carries its own beautiful meaning. That explains why this dish is rather popular on this significant day! It would be great if you are able to get hold of fresh scallops as it definitely makes a difference to the dish as it enhances the sweetness of the gravy. Hydrate the shiitake mushrooms long enough to ensure plumped and juicy mushrooms.
