Stir Fry Veggies with Tiny White Fish - 吻仔魚炒菜

I'm back to California!
My exact one month stay in Taiwan surely spoiled this little rat (yes, that's me!),
I was being fed well with all the yummy homemade food - by my mom!

Sadly, this little food blogger is not so welcomed in the kitchen back in Taiwan,
No one will want to eat my bad tasting food!
( > __.< )
Sometimes I wonder, does my food really tastes that bad or my parents just happened to be extremely picky?
Either way, since I'm back to my little kitchen in CA, it's time for "ME" to cook!


1/2 small cabbage
1 medium carrot
3 garlic cloves
1/4 small onion
Some tiny white fish (about a handful)
Toasted sesame seeds
2 tablespoons of ponzu sauce
Olive oil


Let's do the preparation work first,
Slice the carrot into little round pieces,
Dice the cabbage and onion into smaller squares,
Peel the garlic cloves and slice them.

Drizzle some olive oil in the pan, turn to high heat,
Toss in onion and garlic, sprinkle some salt, cook till the garlic almost gets burned,
Toss in sliced carrot, sprinkle some more salt,
Cook for about 1 minute,
Add the tiny white fish (can be found at local Asian grocery stores) and cabbage,
Add about 2 tablespoons of ponzu sauce, give it a quick stir, wait for about 2 minutes,
If the mixture looks a wee bit dry, add more water instead of ponzu sauce.

Cook till all the ingredients turned soft,
Taste it and see if more salts are needed.
Transfer the ingredients to a plate, sprinkle some sesame seeds,
That's it, my first "delicious" energy boost dish after Taiwan!
(Maybe I should FedEx some to my parents, hopefully I won't get a return package!)

  1. It is not because you can't cook well. Your mom just dotes on you and bans you from the kitchen....hahahha!

  2. To Tigerfish~
    Haha Thanks!
    I never thought about chopping cabbage into smaller pieces, actually copied that from my mom!
