Stir-fry Sweet Bean with Seafood

Last weekend when I was in Flushing, Queens to celebrated Chinese New Year ,I also did some food shopping at the same time in one of the biggest Asian market ..There are plenty of fresh vegetables ,seafood ,meat and fruits on sale.I almost want to buy everything on sale but I have to tell myself to stop dumping all the food on sale in my overloaded shopping cart. Yeah....I'm quite greedy!! One of the fresh vegetable I bought at the Asian market was sweet pea or some people called it's as sweet bean.Whatever it's called I find this type of beans taste really sweet ,crunchy and delicious!! For me this type of sweet bean is ideal for stir-fry only but of course ,you can use it to make fried rice,gravy and etc..


1 lb sweet bean or pea,snipe both end,discard and washed
10-12 medium shrimp,de-shelled and clean
1 large white cuttlefish,clean and cut
200 gm bay scallop
1/2 yellow bell pepper,sliced
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1 tsp chicken bouillon powder
1 tbsp oil


1:Heat skillet or pan with oil and minced garlic at medium heat.Use spatula to fry garlic until fragrant,add in bay scallop,shrimp and cuttlefish.Stir-fry seafood for 3 minutes before toss in sweet bean,yellow bell pepper,oyster sauce and chicken bouillon powder .

2:Stir-fry or toss all ingredients for 3- 5 minutes before check the seasoning.Dish out and serve warm .*do not over fried the sweet bean if you want retain the crunchiness .*
