Fatt Choy Ho See with Fu Gu Cai

Another yummilicious dish with all the auspicious ingredients for Chinese New Year.

Ho See (Dried Oyster) and Fatt Choy ( Black Moss).

Soak the Black Moss in cold water for a few hours. Swish a bit to loosen dirt or particles and discard water a few times.

Transfer to a sieve to drain and dry.

Similarly soak the required Dried Oysters in cold water for 30 minutes or more depending on the sizes.

Rub the oysters under hot running water with your fingers to remove any grit.

In a bowl, marinate with a little sugar, ginger juice, Chinese cooking wine and a little oil. Leave it for 15 minutes.

In a saucepan, add minced garlic and oysters and season with premium oyster sauce, superior dark soy sauce and home prepared chicken stock. Bring to a slow simmer until the oysters are nicely braised and tender.

Make sure to check the water level from time to time and add the stock if necessary.

Finally add the Fatt Choy and gently stir in without breaking it up so that its submerged into the braising sauce.

Cover the saucepan, reduce heat to medium low and bring to a simmer for another 15 to 20 minutes.

Before serving, fry the Fu Gui Cai with minced garlic and arrange on a serving plate.

Spoon the braised ingredients and serve hot.
