Garlic Basil Seafood With Olive Oil

Good for 3-4 Pax


3 Whole Squid (Small)
8-10 Large Scallop
10 Pcs Prawn (Shelled, Keep Tail)
1-2 Stalk Sweet Basil (Chopped Coarsely)
8 Cloves Garlic (Minced)
½ Cup Olive Oil
Sourdough (Toasted)
Crushed Black Pepper


  1. Chopped basil and garlic.
  2. Cleaned squid, remove skin with kitchen paper and cut into 1.5cm ring. Set aside
  3. Toast sourdough in oven for about 8-10mins wrapped in aluminium foil at 180 degree.
  4. Dry all seafood with kitchen paper.
  5. Heat up frying pan (DO NOT ADD ANY OIL AT THIS POINT). Sear scallop on high heat for about 1min on each side or until 70% cooked on both side until slightly brown. Remove and do the same for prawns.
  6. Lastly pour in the squid and stir fry (no oil) until about 70% cooked.
  7. Lower heat (small) and pour in olive oil, garlic and basil. Quick fry for 30 secs.
  8. Add in the seared scallops and prawns, mix well until cooked about another min. Season with salt and pepper before serving.
  9. Serve with toasted sourdough and garnish with leave of basil.


  1. Balsamic Vinegar or Lemon Juice can be added to balance out the overall taste.
  1. Any toasted bread can be used to dip into the garlic olive oil. Best with sourdough.
  1. Far West Scallop is my preferred after trying so many brands. Natural sweetness does not shrink after cooking and still tender and juicy.
