-Bring a large pan full of water to the boil.
-Add the following to the pot:
1 tsp of sea salt
1 TBS oil of your choice
-Cut the ends off of 1 bunch of choy sum.
-Tip in the choy sum and blanch for 1 minute.
-Drain and shake dry in a colander.
-Pile the choy sum neatly on a serving dish and pile the following on it:
2 spring onions, cut into fine slivers
A 1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and cut into fine slivers
A small strip of red chili or red pepper for color, cut into fine slivers (optional)
-Heat 3 TBS oil (of your choice) over a high flame.
-When the oil is hot, ladle it carefully over the spring onions, ginger and chili.
-It should sizzle dramatically. (To make sure the oil is hot enough, try ladling a few drops on first, to check for the sizzle.)
-As soon as you get a vigorous sizzle, pour over the rest of the oil.
-Dilute 2 TBS of soy sauce with 2 TBS hot water.
-Pour over the diluted soy sauce mixture, and serve.
