Conpoy or dried scallop（干贝） is type of dried seafood product made from the adductor muscle of scallops. The smell of conpoy is marine, pungent, and reminiscent of certain salt-cured meats. Its taste is rich and umami due to its high content of various free amino acids, such as glycine, alanine, and glutamic acid. It is also rich innucleic acids such as inosinic acid, amino acid byproducts such as taurine, and minerals, such as calcium and zinc.
Conpoy is produced by cooking raw scallops and then drying them. Proper execution of these two steps as well as the freshness of the original raw product is essential to the quality of the final dried product.
mmmm…so simple and flavorful!

Pass that bowl to me dear. Beautiful clicks and neat presentation.
Very nice Anncoo but dried scallops are so expensive in Adelaide… 🙁
Ancoo..you are my too go page for good asian meals. This and that prawn thing would be so perfect together. Its my chinese night ..and I think instead of the great eatery I frequent, I will make these two!!
I enjoy coming to your page every day because you make delicious looking food out of items I've never even HEARD of!! It really stretches my imagination and I enjoy that. You asked me what dulce de leche is. It is a THICK creamy soft caramel.
I love your blog, I learn so much. I have never, ever, seen dried scallops. I have got to make it over to our big Oriental market in East Denver. I'm missing out on some gooooood stuff!
Scallops are so pricy here and I am wondering if dried are less expensive or the same price and just a matter of convenience. Hum? Oh if you lived by me I would bake you some of my whoopie pumpkin pies for sure:) Have a nice weekend.Joyce
That looks so yummy! I love dried scallops and would eat them more often if they weren't so expensive.
Looks great anncoo,and I am sure tastes as good. Great combo..Once I tried scallop fry but this sounds interesting..Will give a try..:)
Never tried dried scallops,sounds like a nice combo…
Dries scallops?? Very interesting! It looks and sounds wonderful! I would love a bite.
Ah…this sounds absolutely delicious, especially with my favorite ingredient – the dried scallops. Yum Yum!
Taste Traveller: hahaa…smart idea!
Next time when you come here, I'll prepare some for you….haha..
Wow, huge dried scallop! So, this is an expensive dish lol! he he…. You must invite me over! Thanks.
Juz would like to ask where can I get the Redleaf shrimp noodle?
Dried scallops really are packed with 'umami'. I have had it in various Chinese dishes but have never used it in cooking myself. 🙂
This shrimp noodle can get it at any supermarket. If you can't find it, can use egg noodle 鸡蛋面too.
Good idea to stir fried vermicelli with dried scallops but over here it is so expensive 🙁 Thanks for the recipe :))
Murasaki & My Little Space:When I cook this again, sure to inform you 😀
Carrie: Thank you!Pigpigscorner: Yes, this is rather a quick and easy dish.
CBL: Actually I saw this demo by Ah Yat (阿一)many years ago. He used Kwong Cheong Thye light soya sauce.At that time, no recipe just demo.This portion serves about 3-5 persons, depend whether they are big eater or not. (4 of us ~ finished up this noodle)
Found it at coldstorage and bought a pack.
Will do this on monday for lunch.
Great idea! I've never used it in fried noodles before…sounds really simple and tasty!
Great tutorial! It looks delicious!
