Shrimp and Greens

Shrimp and greens are a great combination. This is a very simple dish that can be served as a meal with some rice or noodles. I sometimes mix in squid, mussels, crab, scallops, lobster or chicken along with the shrimp, depending on what I have in the fridge.


1/2 pound of shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp. salt
1/2 pound of greens, blanched (baby bok choy, mustard greens, broccoli or any other green of your choice)
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. cornstarch dissolved in 1 tbsp. of water
1 tbsp. oyster sauce

In a wok or large pan, heat the vegetable oil and salt, then cook the shrimp in it on high heat.

Add the greens, soy sauce and water. Mix together.

Next add the cornstarch mixture and oyster sauce. Mix well and then turn the heat off.

Serve with rice or noodles.
