Instead of normal Chinese stir-frying with oyster sauce, let switch to Thai style using Nam Pla (fish sauce) for a change. This is a simple and easy dish that can be ready in a flash.


1 bunch fresh asparagus, sliced into 2 inch length
1/4 carrot, sliced thinly
6 small squids (clean and cut into bite size)
3 cloves garlic, chopped coarsely
1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce (Nam Pla) (to your taste)
1 teaspoon sugar
3 tablespoons of water
2 tablespoons cooking oil


1. Heat 2 tbsp oil and sauté chopped garlic until fragrant.
2. Add in asparagus, stir fry a while then add in carrot and stir well.
3. Add in fish sauce, sugar and a little water if it becomes too dry.
4. Now add in squid, stir-fry for about 1-2 minutes, or until squid curls up. Don’t overcook squid, as it will become rubbery.
5. Test for taste, adding more fish sauce if not salty enough. But if too salty for your taste, add a little more sugar. Dish up and serve immediately.
