Stir-fried Cabbage and Fish Cakes, 包菜炒鱼片
"Who makes better fish cakes? Me or the store?" - Aunt Kim
For this week’s recipe, we just want to highlight a really simple stir-fry, something you can make as a daily dish. Quick, easy, and tasty.
cabbage (pick your favorite type like Napa)
hot peppers, 尖椒 和 小辣椒 (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Start by washing and cutting the cabbage to mid-sized pieces.
Cut and wash your fish cakes as well. These happen to be homemade, but most Asian grocery stores will carry fish cakes.
Dice up the peppers (optional ingredient).
Start by heating up a wok with cooking oil. Add the peppers and start frying that first to release the flavors.
Then add the cabbage.
Stir-fry until the cabbage is done. Notice how the cabbage has softened up.
Add the fish cakes and stir. These are usually pre-cooked, so you just need to heat it up with the rest of the dish.
When fully cooked, add salt and pepper to taste.
Tada! Short and sweet!
