3. Rinse the sticky rice. Soak the Chinese wolfberry fruit in water for about 5 minutes to re-hydrate.
4. Combine the washed sticky rice, scallop re-hydrating liquid, and the chicken stock soup and heat. Once it comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low. Cover with a lid, leaving the lid slightly open.
