A Chinese classic

Quick, simple and tasty. Apart from dried shrimp you can buy all the ingredients in a supermarket.

Just 4 ingredients:

25 gram of dried shrimp
4 thin slices of fresh ginger
1 Chinese celery cabbage Dutch: Chinese kool
4 spring onions cut in 2 centimeter sections, seperating the white from the green

Soak the shrimps in boiling water for 30 minutes, drain and preserve the water

Chop the cabbage in thin bite sized strips

Heat oil in a wok, fry white spring onion, add ginger. Add the shrimps, stir for a few seconds.

Add the cabbage, toss and add the shrimp water, season with salt. Cook until the cabbage is tender yet crunchy.

Add green spring onion and serve immediately. A few drops of sesame oil will enhance this dish.
