Steam Asparagus With Fish Paste

This is another healthy dish which used Asparagus and fish paste as the main ingredients. Besides that I also add in a few vegetables to mix with fish paste for nutrition value. Asparagus is a good supply of minerals - calcium, iron, carotene, phosphorus, potassium and sulphur - and vitamins. Green asparagus contains twice as much Vitamin C as the white variety and a high percentage of Vitamin A. So remember do not over cooked it.

Ingredients: (serves 2)
1 Packet of Asparagus, about 8 spears
$2 Fish Paste, about 100g
¼ Carrot, finely chopped
3 Water Chestnut, finely chopped

¼ Chicken Granular Stock
1 Teaspoon Cooking Wine
1 Tablespoon Cornflour
1cm Young Ginger, finely grated

1½ Tablespoon Abalone Sauce
1 Teaspoon Mince Garlic
30ml Water
Some Cornflour Water Mixture.

1. Boil some water in a flat based pan with some salt and oil. Blanch Asparagus for about 2 minutes then risen well with cold water.
2. Next coat the cool asparagus with some cornflour, wrap 1 tablespoon of fish paste mix at the middle of the spear.
3. Continue with the rest until all the paste had used up.
4. Next place the prepared asparagus on plate and steam for 5-7 minutes depend on the thickness of the paste wrapped.
5. Preheat another pan with some oil; saute minced garlic until fragrant, add in the abalone sauce follow by water and cornflour mixture to make a thick sauce.
6. When done pour sauce over the steamed asparagus and serve.
