Mizuna with Garlic and Fish Sauce


Prep time: 
7 minutes


Quick stir fry side dish, which gets a salty flavour from the fish sauce.


  • 1 bunch of mizuna, washed, drained and roughly chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 cm piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped into matchsticks
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  1. Place a wide and shallow pan or a wok over a high heat. Add the oil.
  2. Add the garlic and ginger and toss around until golden.
  3. Add the greens and stir fry continuously for one minute. The leaves should soften but remain crisp.
  4. Add the fish sauce and stir, then sprinkle with freshly-squeezed lemon juice and black pepper.
  5. Serve warm or tepid.
