Stir-fried Baby Kailan with Salted Fish Recipe

Different brands of salted fish have varying degree of saltiness so season the dish to taste accordingly if necessary.


  • 200g baby kailan ends trimmed and then cut roughly to smaller pieces
  • 15g dried salted fish (咸鱼) soaked in water to soften, patted dry with kitchen towel, then diced
  • 4 cloves garlic chopped finely
  • 2 tbsp of cooking oil
  • 1/2 finger length red chilli deseeded and sliced thinly
  • 1/2 tbsp Chinese wine (Hua Tiao/Shao Hsing)
  • thin lemon slices optional


  1. Heat oil in wok and fry salted fish until golden brown.
  2. Add garlic and stir fry for 30 seconds.
  3. Add baby kailan and sliced chilli. Stir fry briskly at high heat, until the vegetables have just withered and are well coated in the oil.
  4. Drizzle Chinese wine just before you finish cooking. Garnish and serve with thinly sliced lemon wedges.

Noob Cook Tips

  1. To prevent splatter, after you wash the vegetables, air dry or spin dry them before stir frying.
  2. Stir frying on high heat for a short time allows the vegetables to be crisp and still retain their beautiful hue.
