Directions:
Combine the scallops and cornstarch. Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallops, and stir-fry 4 minutes. Remove from pan. Do not overcook. Scallops cook very fast!

Add minced ginger and garlic, and stir-fry 10 seconds. Stir in sliced asparagus and next 4 ingredients (asparagus through chile puree), and cook, uncovered for 2 minutes. Return scallops to pan; cover and cook 1 minute. Remove from heat, and stir in chopped basil and grated lemon rind. Serve with rice. Garnish with basil sprigs.
