Chorizo, Scallop and Kale Stir Fry

I put together one of my “quick” stir fry’s last night while baking some biscuits for a Commonwealth Games Food Fair we are having at work this week, this Chorizo, Scallop and Kale Stir Fry.

Chorizo, Scallop and Kale Stir Fry

I wanted to make something fast and tasty with not too much washing up, as my kitchen already resembled a biscuit making factory! So it was a case of grabbing a few things out of the freezer and fridge in order to put this together. It’s a meal for one but the ingredients could be increased in order to cater for more.

Chorizo, Scallop and Kale Stir Fry
Recipe type: Dinner
  • Small Dish – approx. 25g chopped skinned chorizo and 1 chopped garlic clove
  • Bowl 1 – 1 sliced pepper (red/orange or yellow)
  • Bowl 2 – approximately 8 – 12 “mini” scallops
  • Bowl 3 – 100g shredded curly kale
  1. Put wok on a gentle heat.
  2. Add the small dish of the chorizo and garlic clove and stir continuously to help the chorizo release its oil.
  3. Once oil from the chorizo is visible in the wok, and slightly smoking, add the sliced pepper.
  4. Continuously stir until the pepper is cooked to your liking, and chorizo is slightly browned, but not burnt, and remove all these ingredients back to a bowl with a slotted spoon.
  5. If oil has evaporated completely from the wok then spray the wok 5 times with cooking spray, add the scallops and stir fry for 2 – 3 minutes, then remove back to a bowl.
  6. Add the shredded curly kale; stir fry for a couple of minutes. If the wok becomes dry again use a small amount of water (1 tbsp.) from the boiled kettle to steam the curly kale.
  7. Once the curly kale is cooked to your liking, add the peppers, chorizo and scallops back to the wok and stir fry all the ingredients together until warmed through.
