青椒山藥炒螺片 Conch with Pepper and Yamaimo Stir-fry

28 Jul

Question: what is usually the actual ingredient for fake abalone?

Answer: Conch

It is no coincidence that conch is often used for this purpose, as it has a somewhat similar texture and flavor, at a small fraction of the price.

Conch is an interesting ingredient to work with and can be eaten raw or cooked in many different ways, including fried, included in a salad, made into a soup, or even . In Chinese cuisine, it is often stir fried.

 

Ingredients:

  • 2 fresh conchs, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 2 slices ginger
  • 3 garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese cooking wine
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • White pepper, to your taste
Directions:
  1. In a pot of hot boiling water, add yamaimo and cook for 5 minutes.
  2. In a skillet/pan, heat oil over high heat.  Add ginger and stir fry until fragrant.  Add pepper, stirring and cook for 2 minutes.  Add Yamaimo then
  3. Add the sliced conch and cooking wine, stirring for 1 minute then add sesame oil and dash of white pepper.  Mix well to serve.
