Eat your greens !


And stop complaining coz it's stir fry again ! hahahaha

The greens in this dish are leftover from my last dish and haven't used them all . I'm planning to throw it as I usually do but to stop my conscience from bothering me , you know , unnecessary waste as some people can't eat properly thingie yada yada  -__-'' So , another excuse to make stir fries , again

As this site is full of stir fry dishes already , one more is not a problem hee hee Most ingredients are just the same ol' same ol  as most of my previous concoctions .

It's easy , simple , healthy and most of all CHEAP . A small portion of this cost more in some of the resto around , so better make your own er if you have time or inclination ? ^__*



1 piece firm white fish , fresh or frozen
some Chinese kale stalk
some string beans
1 small yellow bell pepper
1 red chili
1 spiced dried tofu
3 shallots
1 tsp ginger , finely chopped
1 clove garlic , minced
1 tsp olive sauce , optional
1 tsp chili bean sauce
some ground white pepper and salt

Mix 1/2 tsp cornstarch , 3 T water , some brown sugar , white pepper and 1/2 tsp light sauce
***** This is a fairly dry dish and if you want more sauce just add more water to the above mixture .

* Cut / slice all ingredients . Season fish slices with some salt , brown sugar , white pepper , few drops of sesame oil and 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch . Set aside .
* Boil some water and add few drops of oil and some salt  , dump in kale stalks and string beans , about 1 minutes . Drain well and set aside .
* Heat some oil in a non-stick pan , add the fish slices , fry until golden brown . Transfer to a plate ; keep warm
* In the same pan , wipe off excess oil with a paper towel . Fry shallots until transparent then add in garlic and ginger ; fry until garlic turns light brown . Add all the veggies , dried tofu , olive sauce and bean sauce ; stir fry for 2 minutes , then season with salt and pepper . Add the cornstarch and water mixture ; mix well until mixture thickens ; give another good stir . Dish up . Take photos . Serve hot . Enjoy !

  15. one of the things i love so much about chinese food, and a lot of asian food in general, is the skillful use of vegetables and greens in particular. it makes for food that is so flavorful and delicious, but still healthy! sometimes it's hard to find both of those things at once in a western dish, you know what i mean! :)
