Mui Fan

A simple all-in-one dish that can be whipped up real fast if you prepare the ingredients in advance. The ingredients are versatile and you can use anything you fancy really - chicken, prawns, squid. For me today, I used sliced fish, crabsticks, salmon flavoured fishballs, and xiao bai chye.

I first seasoned the fish with light soya sauce, sesame oil, white pepper and a little cornstarch.

I didn't realize that I had run out of ginger so I made do without it.

For the sauce, it was just oyster sauce and enough water for 2-1/2 portions.

I stir fried the fish, removed, then did the vegetables and other ingredients. After adding water, I let it simmer till almost cooked. Return the fish back to the wok. Beat in one egg and then thicken with corn starch.

Spoon over white rice and serve
