Stir-fried baby spinach with crispy whitebait

Mmmm.... tender bites of baby spinach with crispy whitebait!

The highlight of the dish... :)

Stir-fried baby spinach with crispy whitebait

  • 1-2 bunches of baby spinach
  • 1 big handful of Japanese (dried) whitebait
  • 100ml stock/water
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • shallot and garlic oil (made by frying shallot and garlic in oil till they brown)

  1. In a wok, heat some shallot and garlic oil then add the whitebait and pan-fry till they turn golden brown and crisp.
  2. Set aside the whitebait on a kitchen towel to remove any excess oil.
  3. With the remaining oil in the wok, fry the garlic till fragrant.
  4. Add the baby spinach and stir-fry for about half a minute.
  5. Add the stock/water and simmer till the spinach is cooked.
  6. Add fish sauce to taste.
  7. Dish and top with crispy whitebait.

Alicia loves the crispy whitebait and she ate them neat. :)

For toddler's consumption:
  • The whitebait from Japan is not salty and I highly recommend it for toddlers' consumption!
  • Make sure the spinach is of appropriate length/size before serving to prevent choking.
  • Serve the spinach and whitebait separately if preferred.
