Ingredients :
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2/3 cup water
4 teaspoons canola oil, divided
1 pound bay scallops
1/2 pound fresh snow peas, halved diagonally
2 medium leeks (white portion only), cut into 3x1/2-inch strips
1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
3 cups hot cooked brown rice

How To Make :
Mix cornstarch, soy sauce and water. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry scallops until firm and opaque, 1-2 minutes. Remove from pan.
In same pan, heat remaining oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry snow peas, leeks and ginger until peas are just crisp-tender, 4-6 minutes. Stir cornstarch mixture; add to pan. Cook and stir until sauce is thickened, about 1 minute. Add scallops; heat through. Serve with rice.

Test Kitchen tips :
Bay scallops are the smallest of the scallops and are usually available in a 70/120 size, meaning there are about 70 to 120 scallops per pound.
Bay scallops are tender and have a sweet flavor, but can easily become tough if overcooked.
