This XO sauce scallops is a homely and gourmet treat at the same time. I love XO Sauce and I truly believe that every cook into Chinese cooking should have a bottle in the kitchen.

In my pantry, I am never without it. XO Sauce is a gourmet Cantonese seafood sauce made up of dried scallops & dried shrimps among other ingredients, and it can be eaten on its own as a condiment or used in stir-fries. Whenever I need to wok something in a hurry, I used XO Sauce as the base and I will most certainly be ensured a restaurant-quality and luxurious Chinese dish with minimum effort and preparation.

XO Sauce

Even though a bottle of XO Sauce is pricey (about S$20 a bottle) due to the dried scallops, a little goes a long way in cooking. Dishes with XO Sauce are premiumly priced at Chinese restaurants, so a dish with XO sauce is much cheaper when cooked at home.

  1. Your scallops look beautiful! May I ask where you purchased your Hokkaido scallops? Any suggestions for where to find them fresh? I made the mistake of purchasing scallops at my nearest grocery and then ended up in the bin; slimy and smelly. Thanks for any suggestions–looking forward to trying the recipe!

    • Hi, I’m in Singapore and I got mine at NTUC. There’s a photo of the box with the scallops in the post above. the normal price is S$36.90 but now and then, it’s on sale for about S$30. Hope you find it!
