(WSVN) - Spice up your scallops with flavor inspired from both Latin America and Asia. That’s what’s cooking tonight as we grab a Bite With Belkys.

The Chef: Adonai Tafur

The Restaurant: Osaka, Miami

The Dish: Hotate Parma

4 large clean scallops preferable on the shell (if you don’t have the shell, you can always use a small baking plate)
4 oz. of leek sauce (for the leek sauce, 1 whole leek thinly sliced)
1 pc. Parmesan cheese for grating
4 fresh lime wedges (preferably key lime)
4 cloves garlic sliced
1 tbsp. red curry
1 tbsp. aji panca paste
1 oz. brandy
1 qt. heavy cream
4 tbsp. white sugar
1 tsp. togarashi
1tbsp. fresh grated ginger
¼ lb. soft butter

Method of Preparation:

Leek Sauce:

  •  In a saucepot, place half of the butter and cook the leeks and garlic on medium heat.
  • Add brandy, cream, curry, sugar, and panca paste.
  • Mix everything well on medium heat until all is fully incorporated. Let the mixture come to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Cook for about 45 minutes until cream reduces 1/3 of the way and thickens up.
  • Strain while still warm and incorporate fresh ginger, togarashi and the rest of the butter. Add salt to taste and cool down.


  • Set your oven to high broil and let it heat. Place the scallops in the baking plates or on the shells. Season lightly with salt and pour 1 oz. of leek sauce on top of each one of them.
  • Put the scallops on the top shelf of the oven and let them broil for about 5 minutes or until sauce starts breaking and getting some color.
  • Pull the scallops out and grate some fresh parmesan on top. Place back in the oven for about a minute until cheese is completely melted and golden.
  • Serve with fresh squeezed lime.
