2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables and shellfish

  • Peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.
  • Rinse and drain the shellfish. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season with salt and pepper and the curry powder.


Toast the almonds

In a large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the almonds and curry spice blend and toast, stirring often, until lightly browned and fragrant, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool. Do not clean the pan.


Cook the shellfish

In the same pan used for the almonds, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. 


For shrimp:  

Add the shrimp and cook, turning once, until firm and cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes per side for regular shrimp, 2 to 3 minutes per side for jumbo shrimp. 


For scallops:  

Add the scallops and cook without turning until golden brown on one side and starting to turn opaque, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn and continue cooking for about 30 seconds for translucent or 1 to 2 minutes for opaque. 


Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan.


Cook the vegetables

In the same pan used for the shellfish, if dry, add 1 to 2 tablespoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season lightly with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the stir-fry blend and cabbage (the cabbage in batches if needed) and cook, stirring occasionally, until the cabbage is crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the carrots and remove from the heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 


Transfer the cabbage mixture to individual bowls. Top with the shellfish and almonds and serve.
