  • 300 g enoki mushroom 10oz
  • 1 tablespoon neutral cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoon minced fresh chili, or homemade pickled chili garlic sauce
  • 2 tablespoon light soy sauce
  • ½ tablespoon oyster sauce see note 1 for the vegetarian option
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • Scallion or coriander(cilantro), finely chopped


Prepare the mushroom

  • Use a knife to trim off the root section of the mushroom. Gently separate it into bite-sized bundles.
  • Wash in a large bowl of clean water. Drain then pat dry with kitchen towel/paper.

Fry the sauce

  • In a wok/pan, fry minced garlic and minced chili (or homemade pickled chili garlic sauce) in oil over medium heat until fragrant.
  • Add light soy sauce, oyster sauce and sugar. Mix well.

Steam the dish

  • Place enoki mushroom over a serving plate. Scatter the sauce over.
  • Bring water to a full boil in your steaming setup (see note 2). Carefully put in the plate. Cover with a lid and leave to steam for 4 mins.
  • Garnish with chopped scallion or coriander(cilantro). Serve immediately.



1. If you wish to make this dish vegetarian/vegan, replace regular oyster sauce with vegetarian oyster sauce which is known as “mushroom vegetarian stir-fry sauce/素食蚝油”. If none of these is available, increase light soy sauce to 2½ tablespoon
2. The steaming set-up can be a bamboo/metal/plastic steamer, or a wok/large pot with a steamer rack (You may also use a small bowl to support the plate).
