  • 60 ml rice bran oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 cm knob of ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 6 shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 Tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 80 ml fish stock
  • 2 tsp fish sauce
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 spring onion, sliced
  • 1 handful coriander leaves
  • 1/2 red capsicum, sliced
  • Rice for steaming


  1. Place a wok or saute pan over a medium heat and add oil.
  2. When the oil is hot, add garlic, ginger and mushrooms and stir-fry for a couple of minutes. Add hoisin sauce and fish stock and bring the mixture to the boil.
