Sometimes the best dishes are the simplest ones.
This stir fry of Chinese chives and shrimp is a perfect example. It’s made from only four ingredients and literally takes five minutes to cook, but it tastes fantastic.
The flavor comes from the Chinese chives, also known as garlic chives because of their very present garlic flavor. To retain as much of this flavor as possible, these chives are stir fried quickly over super high heat for only a minute or two. To make the dish a little more substantial, I added shrimp which complements the flavors of the garlic chives well.
I imagine that other meats like marinated pork or even bacon would also work well. The key is keeping it simple and cooking it quickly! And in no time at all, you’ll have a wonderful side dish to go with the rest of your Thai meal.
