Bring a pot of water to boil. Cook the scallops for 30 seconds. Remove the scallops from the boiling water with a strainer. Drain and set aside.

Mix all the ingredients of the Sauce in a small bowl. Mix well.

Heat a wok or skillet with the oil. Add the garlic and stir-fry until aromatic. Add in the bell peppers and stir-fry until you smell the aromas of the bell peppers. Transfer the scallops into the wok or skillet and stir to combine well with the bell peppers.

Add in the sauce mixture and continue to stir-fry the scallops. As soon as the sauce thickens, turn off the heat. Transfer the scallops to a serving platter and garnish with the white sesame. 

Serve immediately with steamed white or brown rice.
