Bean Sprouts with Salted Fish and Fried Bean Curd

Bean Sprouts with Salted Fish and Fried Bean Curd

I love this dish. Can still remember my childhood spent plucking the roots off the bean sprouts with my maternal grandpa (and the sprouts came wrapped in newspaper). But nowadays I do not have the patience nor the time to do so and I personally do not mind eating the roots especially as I usually buy Bio bean sprouts here in Modena.

The salted fish my dear mother bought and had me bring back from Singapore and the fried bean curd CL kindly sent me home with a packet the last time I visited her. She got them from the Asian shop in Bologna.

I used garlic, sesame oil, ginger, light soy sauce and oyster sauce for the dish. And I like my bean sprouts crunchy. I can eat tonnes of white rice with these sprouts. Yummy.

Off to ski in Risoul. Dreading it as usual and looking forward to it at the same time as usual.

Happy Easter Holidays!

:) I m asking on behalf of a friend..i think he wants something authentic..and is not too fussy about the budget...something mid-range would be good most probably??
He has been in Rome for the past year and told me that it was hard to get chinese food there???

Hi ioyces, sorry for the delay. Actually I fear that I do not know any Chinese restaurants in Rome and not any good ones in Modena either, quite desperate myself truth be told.

If your kaki's looking for Italian restaurants, I can flip thru my Michelin Guide for a few though. But best he rolls up his sleeves and starts cooking as one is never better served than by oneself.
