Shrimp-stuffed Fish
Ingredients:
12 whole canned longan or 20 litchi fruits
2 ounces shrimp, peeled, veins discarded, minced, their tails saved for decor
1/4 cup canned water chestnuts, minced
2 button mushrooms, minced
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt and ground white pepper combined
3 or 4 lettuce leaves, to hold the fruit upright in the steamer
Preparation:
1. Check that there is no tiny pieces of pit in the fruit.
2. Mix shrimp, water chestnuts, and the mushrooms and mince a bit more until well combined. Then add cornstarch and salt and pepper, and carefully stuff a little bit into each fruit, being careful not to break it. Push tail piece into the end of the stuffing so that it extends and looks pretty.
3. Crumple lettuce leaves to that they hold the fruit upright in a steamer basket, their tails up. Cover the steamer basket and steam over boiling water for five minutes. Remove to a bowl, and serve.
