Add shrimp and simmer for one minute. Add scallops. Simmer for just one minute more then turn off heat. Add green onions and cilantro right before serving.

The pieces of ginger used to infuse the broth can be saved for another meal. Simply chop the ginger up and sauté it with any combination of meat and vegetables. Once you make the ginger broth, scallops and shrimp aren’t the only direction you can go for soup. Instead, try thin strips of chicken or flank steak simmered with vegetables like Swiss chard, spinach or carrots.
