Stir Fried Sugar Snap Peas Recipe (with Lotus Root)

This Sugar Snap Peas Recipe is a very simple stir fry of chicken meat and vegetables which can also be easily substituted with other ingredients that you normally prefer such as cauliflower, broccoli, snow peas etc. However, I would suggest keeping one essential element of this stir fry i.e. the lotus root as it really […]

Stir Fried Scallops with XO Sauce Recipe

I love XO sauce on its own; it’s so flavoursome & moreish, I can just eat a big bowl of rice with it. It also makes a fantastic complement to stir fries especially seafood ones because XO sauce itself contains dried scallops & dried shrimps, hence it’s slightly on the fishy side. Normally, I would […]

Kung Pao Lotus Root Recipe (Vegetarian)

Kung Pao dishes need no further introduction. They are so common and easily available at Chinese takeaways and restaurants. I have shared two Kung Pao recipes previously: Kung Pao Chicken Kung Pao Tofu (vegetarian) And this time, I’ve made another vegetarian version with lotus root and other vegetables. The crunch of the vegetables and cashew […]

Sweet and Sour Salmon Recipe

This is what I call the fish version of a 咕噜肉 (‘gu lou yok’ or Cantonese-style sweet & sour pork) and I’m sure this Sweet and Sour Salmon Recipe will be much healthier (with lots of omega-3 fatty acids too) than its deep-fried fatty pork counterpart. As salmon itself is very oily, there is no […]

We can almost create any stir-fry dish with whatever meat and/or vegetables we have in the fridge so long we have oyster and light soy sauces – which I’d say are the most useful, must-have sauces for every kitchen. Stir-fries […]

Lemongrass Chicken Stir Fry

When I first started my home cooking journey more than 2 years ago, I was very into spice ‘mixology’ and experimentation. I loved big flavours (and I still do) and I always tried to incorporate herbs and/or spices into my cooking whenever possible. I came up with a Lemongrass Chicken with Sunflower Seeds Recipe that had […]

Crab Meat, Asparagus & Tofu Stir Fry Recipe

I came across a stir fry recipe in a low-GI cookbook recently and thought I’d reinvent it into something heartier. This is a speedy stir fry or Asian style salad as I would call it that’s really healthy and light on the stomach and low in fats & calories too. I’ve packed in asparagus and mushrooms […]

Kai Lan with Enoki Mushrooms Recipe

I realise I don’t have many veggie dishes in my recipe book even though I’d always cook up greens for dinner. Probably because the cooking styles are more or less the same by using fish sauce, oyster sauce or both and I’m used to plain vegetables with just a little light soy sauce anyway which […]
