This is a simple dish that you can easily whip up at home instead of having it in a restaurant or zi-char stall. Another variation of this is Chinese Spinach with trio eggs (century egg, salted egg & chicken egg) or you can omit the eggs and add wolfberries instead.
What you need:
- A handful of silver fish, rinse and pat dry, before you fry it till crispy. This will be used as toppings.
- Broth - you can use ready-made stock, fish bone stock, ikan bilis stock or any stock that you have on hand. For me, as I have some prawn shells, I sauteed the prawn shells with garlic to get a rich and favourful prawn stock as the broth.
- Chinese spinach - buy the small leafy spinach or baby spinach as it is more tender. Heat oil, add garlic, Chinese spinach, stir-fry, add stock and it is done in 2 to 3 minutes.
