Lemon Scallops and Shrimps

A mix of sour, salty, sweet, and spicy! It's so good especially when eating with steam rice. I have no exact recipe for this, just prepare the following.

200g shrimp, shelled
200g scallops
1/2 cup chili sweet sauce
1 small lemon juice and zest
3 lime leaves (I used the dry one)
1 tablespoon chili sauce
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/4 cup coconut milk
olive oil
cilantro (optional)

Marinate the shrimps and scallops with sweet chili sauce, lemon juice and zest, lime leaves, chili sauce, garlic, salt, and brown sugar for at least 30 minutes. Heat pan, add shrimp and saute for a minute. Set aside. In the same pan, add the marinade mixture and coconut milk. Let it boil, add the shrimp and scallops. Cook until the sauce thicken. Sprinkle with cilantro (optional)

"Scallops are expensive,
so they should be treated with some class.
But then, I suppose that every creature
that gives his life for our table should be treated with class."

- Jeff Smith
