30-minute Recipe : Hong Kong Style Braised Yee Mee

Ever wondered what to do with all the leftovers from the steamboat feasting during CNY ? Have them all in a one pot dish with this Hong Kong Styled Braised Yee Mee !

But I was hungry, so I had it cooked in a wok and serve them on plates once they are ready, instead of using a pot. So perhaps I should name this a one-plate dish instead. And all it took was a good 30-minutes to beef up a HK style braised yee mee and it tastes exactly like the one we had at zhi chay stalls ! And most importantly, I was trying to use up the leftovers from the CNY feast and all that was available was applicable !  As I mentioned in an earlier blog post that I would be creating a new section as such for busy working adults like myself  who desire a home-cooked meal after work and yet lacking the time to whip up a laborious meal. And so here it comes again ! 

Prawns, scallops, crabmeats, carrots, mushrooms, veges… Imagine all the seafood abundance which I am pretty sure you won’t get so much “good stuffs” for the same dish at a zhi chay stall or even at a restaurant. Of course, those are what I have in my fridge, and if you have others, feel free to add them to your liking. 

HK Style Braised Yee Mee

For once, I manage to finish up this huge serving all by myself ! 

We are down to the last 2 days of CNY ! As fast as it comes, as quick as it past too ! And if you have not done the typical CNY stuffs that you have to do, here’s your last chance !! But actually I can only think of Lou Yusheng as the most interesting to me…. Hahaha… and even with that, my favourite are the salmon and the crackers only ! Brrrrrr………………….


 Of course, here’s the recipe to share !
