Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat a wok over a high heat until hot, then add the oil. Once the oil is hot, add the shallots, black beans, garlic and ginger, and stir fry for 1 minute. Then tip in the peppers and stir fry for 1 minute.

  • STEP 2

    Add the wine or sherry, chilli bean sauce, soy sauce, sugar and stock or water, and continue to cook over a high heat for 5 minutes, or until the peppers are soft and most of the liquid has evaporated.

  • STEP 3

    Stir in the sesame oil, give the mixture several turns to mix well, turn out on a serving plate and leave to cool. Can be made up to 2 hours ahead. Serve at room temperature.

RECIPE TIPS
SALTED BLACK BEANS

Salted black beans are small black soya beans fermented with salt and spices to preserve them. You can find them in Chinese grocery stores, or black bean sauce is a good alternative.
