Courgettes stir-fried with oyster sauce
Easy, simple courgette dish done in 15 minutes
Tip: Pick and use small, young courgettes for stir-fries. before they develop large seeds and become spongey.
2-3 small courgettes, sliced
1 tbsp vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, sliced
1/2 medium chilli, sliced (optional)
1 tbsp oyster sauce + approx. 1 tbsp water
Good pinch of salt & pepper
Heat wok over medium-high heat. Add oil.
Add courgettes, fry for 2-3 minutes. Add garlic, chilli, salt, pepper. Fry for further 2 mins until courgettes are golden and just softened.
Add oyster sauce and water. Add more water if wok is too dry (adding a little at a time). Toss to coat. Fry for further 30 seconds.
My top choice for oyster sauce/vegetarian flavoured oyster sauce is by Lee Kum Kee.
