Stir-fry Royale Chives & Prawns

This stir-fry royale chives & prawns (青龙菜炒虾) was cooked with salted fish, garlic and ginger.  Whenever I am at a loss about what vegetable to cook for the day, I know I won’t go wrong with royale chives (qing long cai 青龙菜). This vegetable is easy to prepare – just cut, wash & spin dry. Another reason why I like royale chives is that the price mark-up for this vegetable is particularly high as compared to other vegetables when ordering it at a restaurant. So that makes it so much more worthwhile to cook with royale chives at home.
