Choy Sum Clam Stir Fry

Freestyling again today and now I am tasked to make a very tasty vegetable dish and I know just how to achieve that. Usually green leafy vegetables are quite bitter, and some are quite tasteless, we are going to change that today by giving the humble choy sum a big boost in flavour. To achieve that, clams is what I have in mind, these sea creatures are packed with ocean goodness, I love using this as an ingredient as it gives tons of flavour where ever it is used, in pasta, in soups, even in breads now let’s just use that in vegetables.

We are not just using clams as it is, we will even use the water we used for steaming then reducing it to give much more flavour, to add into that we are also using oyster sauce and soy sauce and the result is something for you to try, I don’t know why I haven’t learned this before.
