Snow Pea Shoots with Oyster Sauce

When you order this dish at the chinese restaurant, it will cost you an arm and a leg for a tiny plate but dishing it at home only cost you an arm but you can enjoy 3 servings of what you get in the restaurant. It is an easy dish to cook, the only difficult part is to plucking the young shoots and discarding the woody ones.

1 lb Snow Pea shoots - use only the young shoots - wash and drain
2 tbsp oyster sauce
3 - 4 tbsp garlic oil

Put drained snow pea shoots on to a large plate.
Pour the garlic oil over the snow pea shoots, cover with splatter cover and microwave on high for 3 minutes.
Remove splatter cover and add in oyster sauce.
Serve hot.

Haha.....Agreed with joyces, it's true that having vegetables in restaurant is not as valuable as fish or meat. Snow pea shoots seems to be the most pricey vegetable in market in Hong Kong also, 3 times or even more than others
