I've just cooked this with Ginger and Chilli Baked Fish (recipe no. 72665). Thought you might like to try it too.

- 8 ounces asparagus
- 8 ounces pak choi
- 8 ounces baby corn

- 2 small fresh red chilies, seeded and sliced
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons fish sauce
- 2 tablespoons water
- 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Separate the broccoli florets and peel and thinly slice the stems on the diagonal; Cut the asparagus into 4cm pieces; Cut the chinese leaves into 4cm strips; Halve the baby corn lengthways or leave it whole.
- Blanch the broccoli in a large pot of boiling salted water for 3 minutes; Drain and plunge them into cold water to stop them from cooking.
- Heat a wok or large frying pan until hot; Add the oil and when it is very hot and slightly smoking, add the shallots and chillies and stir fry for 1 minute; Then add the baby corn and the asparagus; Stir fry for 30 seconds, then add the fish sauce and water, bring the mixture to the boil, cover and cook over high heat for 2 minutes.
- Then add the broccoli and Chinese leaves together with the oyster sauce, sugar and salt; Continue cooking over high heat for 3 minutes or until the vegetables are cooked.
- Serve immediately.
We really enjoyed the array of vegetables in this dish, and served it with (Kung Pao Shrimp). The sauce was nicely spicy and very flavorful although I found it to be a bit too watery which washed some of the sauce flavor off of the veggies. Next time I would not add those 2 tbsp. water the recipe calls for. Also I did use Splenda in this instead of sugar, and might cut that back to 1 teaspoon as I like the sauce not too sweet. But thanks for posting, we did enjoy this quite a bit and made this for Cookbooks Tag. ~Sue
