Recipe: Anchovies with Soy Sauce

Couple of weeks ago CheeseBoy was down with high fever. After much persuasion, I finally managed to drag him to the clinic. After an awesome home cook meal by yours truly and not so awesome medication, I tugged CheeseBoy to bed and started doing house chores alone.

While waiting for CheeseBoy to wake up I went through my Chef Wan cook book and found this recipe – Anchovies with Soy Sauce. I thought of giving it a shot especially since it’s so easy to prepare (Not very keen to cook a fancy meal after all the tiring house chores).

Anchovies (Ikan Bilis) – 300gm

Garlic 3, peeled and sliced

Red Chili 1, seeded and sliced

 How to Cook?

Add garlic, chilies, onion, soy sauce and lime juice and  stir-fry until well mixed

Finally, add in the sugar and mix well. Serve immediately
