    Place steamer basket over a wok of gently simmering water and cover tightly with lid. Steam 3-5 minutes, until scallops are opaque and cooked to your liking. Serve immediately topped with sprigs of coriander.


Clean scallops with point of a sharp knife. If scallops in shell are unavailable, line a steamer basket with baking paper, arrange scallops on paper, drizzle with marinade and continue as directed.
