    This is a wonderful dish with light but complex flavors. We typically serve this along with another dish as part of a Chinese style meal.


    • 1 pound cabbage (or Napa cabbage)
    • 2 Tbsp oil
    • 2-3 slices ginger, shredded
    • 1/4 cup shredded carrots
    • 1/4 cup shredded bamboo shoots
    • 2 Tbsp green peas
    • 1 tsp cornstarch
    • For sauce:
    • 1 Tbsp plus 1 tsp soy sauce
    • 1/2 tsp sugar
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1 Tbsp rice wine
    • 1/2 cup vegetable stock or dashi stock (fish stock)


    1. Cut cabbage into 1 inch by 2 inch pieces.
    2. Heat wok with oil over high. Add ginger then shrimp. Stir for 1 minute, then add cabbage and continue for 1 more minute. Stir in carrot, bamboo shoot, and peas.
    3. Combine sauce ingredients and add them to the vegetables. Cover and simmer on low for 3-4 minutes.
    4. Add cornstarch to thicken, stir, and serve immediately.
