6 pieces bamboo shoots, available at Chinese stores, sliced decoratively
3 tablespoons peanut oil
2 slices fresh ginger, 1/4 inch thick
1/2 clove garlic, finely chopped

1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch, mixed with a little cold water, for thickening
1/2 cup whole macadamia nuts

Drop the scallops into a pot of boiling water and cook over high heat until the water comes back to a boil. Remove the scallops, drain, and set aside on a plate.

Sprinkle on the rice wine then add the mushrooms, asparagus, carrot and bamboo shoots and toss all of the ingredients quickly together to combine.

Add the chicken broth, salt, pepper and the sugar and toss together for 30 seconds. Pour in the thickening mixture and stir until the sauce is lightly velvety.
