Stir-fried Baby Kailan with Salted Fish
Recently, I am in love with stir frying vegetables because it is much cheaper to cook them at home. For example, the pack of baby kailan I used for this dish is only S$0.60 and the total cost of making the dish is only about a dollar or so. This is a fraction of the price which outside is charging! In this recipe, salted fish flavours the baby kailan and depending on the salted fish you use, it is usually not necessary to season with salt or soy sauce.
I have a love-hate relationship with stir frying vegetables because I’m so scared of oil splatters. My family is quite accustomed to hearing sudden yelps of “Ouch!” whenever I got splattered by the hot oil. I was so scared that I even stir fry the vegetables at a low heat. But later, I found out that stir frying vegetables at high heat for a short period yield better results. The trick is to dry your vegetables well (either air dry or spin dry) after rinsing to avoid splatters.
That looks beautiful, fresh, and vibrant! :) I don’t recognize the plate in this photo….is it new? So cute! :)
yes it is new! you are so sharp ;) It looks very Asian doesn’t it hehe
Beautiful stir-fried dish, Wiffy! And the use of slices of lemon as garnish is a great idea!
