Ready : 15 mins [Prep : 5 mins † Cooking : 10 mins] Printable Recipe


Simple is as simple does” is the best way to describe this quick and simple stir-fry dish. Cabbage, despite it cold appearance and rather bland taste, really does pack a whole lot of nutrients (Google and U’ll see). But, if U treat it with the right simple ingredients and seasonings, U will get a plate of delicious healthy goodness; divulging the pure natural sweetness of the Cabbage. Plus, it’s cheap and can be kept for a long period of time in its raw form !! Here’s The Viand’s take on Simple Stir-Fried Cabbage (with dried shrimps).



  • Soaked (just to get rid of any impurities) and washed Cabbage (Green Cabbage NOT Napa Cabbage), cut or, do like The VainD, simply hand-torn to bite size. Get rid of the top part of the middle stem, can be tough.
  • Coarsely chopped soaked dried Shrimps.


  • Light soy, Sugar, Salt, a touch of Oyster sauce, a dash of Sesame oil and a splash of Shaoxing Wine. All to taste. ** Note : Just dash/pinch of everything, if U prefer a stronger intensity of an ingredient flavor, simply add a little extra of that ingredient/spice – no rocket scientific measurement here. Always taste your Seasoning !!!



  • Step 1 : Start by sautéing the dried shrimps on medium/low heat till aromatic. Dish out to drain off excess oil. Set aside.
  • Step 2 : With the same oil sauté some chopped Garlic till aromatic on medium/low heat. Crank up the heat, add the Cabbage and stir well. Add a little water and let it sit for a little while, just till the Cabbage soften slightly (but not too soft/soggy, should be a little crunchy). Add all the Seasoning Ingredients. Give it a few more quick stirs (just to combine everything) and viola, ur plate of natural sweetness “Simple Stir-Fried Cabbage (with dried shrimps)” is ready to be served hot.
