Stirfried Kailan (or kale) is a very common everyday dish for us. If I’m cooking this for a special occasion, I will upgrade it, funky it up a little with scallop bits. So here we go…
The ingredients are:
- a pack of kailan (cut stems diagonally into slices, leaves in 2-3 inch lengths)
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 3-5 dried scallops, torn into shreds
In a wok with a glug of vegetable oil, I first fry the dried scallops till crispy. Remove the scallops to a plate. Then add a couple more glugs of oil into the wok and saute the chopped garlic till fragrant (not burnt).
Then I add the kailan stems and fry for 3 minutes before adding the leaves followed by a splash of water. Cover the wok for 2 minutes. Season with a splash of soy sauce and/or salt and pepper. And that’s pretty much it, you’re ready to serve. Did I mention how easy this is? And the combination of textures is a joy to chew on. You gotta try this .
