1. Heat oil in a wok and add the pine nuts. Cook over low heat, stirring continuously until lightly browned. Remove with a draining spoon and drain on paper towels.

2. Add the prawns and scallops to the oil remaining in the wok and stir over moderate heat until shellfish is beginning to look opaque and firm and the prawns look pink.

3. Add the ginger, chilli, garlic and red pepper and cook a few minutes over moderately high heat.

4. Add the spinach and onion, and stir-fry briefly. Mix the remaining ingredients together and pour over the ingredients in the wok.

5. Turn up the heat to bring the liquid to the boil, stirring ingredients constantly. Once the liquid thickens and clears, stir in the pine nuts and serve immediately.
