Super Easy Choy Sum Shrimp Stir Fry

Simple Choy Sum Shrimp Stir Fry
Another dish my MIL always makes, super sweet veggie, fresh shrimps. Beautiful. Finally I saw her making it recently. It's amazing how she can make the dish taste so good without even using aromatics like ginger or garlic. Very minimal, and the ingredients shine through.

- 1 cup shrimps, deshelled, deveined, butterflied
- a pack of choy sum
- vegetable oil, salt, and pepper

Season shrimps with salt and pepper. Heat up frying pan with some vegetable oil, stir fry shrimps until half done and set aside. Stir fry choy sum until they reach the level of tenderness that you like (don't let them turn yellow), season with a bit of salt, add shrimps, stir fry until shrimps are just cooked, and serve.

Perfect for a light meal!

that is one thing i realized when i eat in HK, especially vegetables. I like how the vege dishes are kept simple but yet so delicious because they use the freshest ingredients. I guess its a good balance to some of the 'fast food' meals in char chan tengs in HK!

I love your pictures btw!
