A simple yet delicious dish...love the aroma of stir fry chinese chives with lots of garlic. I added slices of fish fillet instead of prawns. My mom used to stir fry these chinese chives with chicken innards. Chicken gizzards and liver are our favourites but due to eating healthy , I have substitute them with fish fillets :) So freaking healthy...right? Surprisingly, WB loves it even though this was my first time introducing the dish to him. It seemed his mom never cooked this for them...mmmm so I can conclude that my beloved mom in law doesn't like the smell of this chinese chives :) thus WB never get to eat this chinese chives.
I sauteed the garlic slices till aromatic then lightly stir fry the fish fillets
till they are cooked... have to be gently with the fish or they will break into
pieces ;p dish up the fillets and set aside before putting in the chives
once the chives are cooked, gently put in the cooked fish fillets
and gently blend the fish fillets into the chives.
this dish is so yummy good that I will cook this again for sure !
