Chinese chive flowers with Shrimps


Today I like to cook this dish with Frozen shrimp as I already has in my freeze. I also like pork liver it is good for blood. Chinese chive flowers with shrimp is an easy dish to make and reheats well in microwave.

Ingredient:
  • 10 the frozen shrimps
  • 1 g Chinese chive flowers, cut
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 ½ tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
How to Cook:
  • Chop garlic. Cut the Chinese chive flowers into 1 ½ inch long. 
  • Clean wash shrimps. For a presentation, you can use whole shrimp (with head) and peel.
  • Heat a wok or a pan on high heat. Add a tablespoon of oil and chopped garlic and stir.
  • Add shrimp when the garlic starts to brown. 
  • Stir to get the shrimp somewhat cooked. 
  • The shrimp shoud start to get pinky but not all pink or cooked.
  • Add the chive flowers and stir to cook them.
  • Add oyster sauce and fish sauce. The flowers shouldn't take long to cook. 
  • You want the flowers to just cook, but not overcook and still retain their crunchiness.
  • When the color turns bright green, it indicates that they are cooked.
  • Turn off the heat and pour on a plate immediately
  • Serve with hot steamed rice
Tips:
For a vegetarian version, omit the shrimp and substitute salt or soy sauce for fish sauce.
