Bean Sprouts with Dried Shrimps

My good friend Mimi gave me some home made bean sprouts and I decided to give an extra edge by frying with some dried shrimps.

What you need
bean sprouts - removed tails and skin, washed and drain
slices of onion
pieces of garlic - give a good smash
a good amount of dried shrimps - soaked, drained and give a good smash too
handful of spring onions
dash of sesame oil
salt to taste

How to do
  • Heat oil, once hot, add in garlic, give a quick stir
  • Add in slices of onions, fry for a few more minutes
  • add in the dried shrimps, stir for a few more minutes
  • Next add in capsicum, salt to taste, mix well, leave it for few mins.
  • Add in the bean sprouts, ensure to stir well, do not cover
  • Dash in sesame oil, mixing well, and finally spring onions
  • Give a quick stir, do not over cook the bean sprouts - I like it crunchy
  • Serve
