Mixed Seafood with Oyster Sauce

Try this Chinese-style seafood medley for lunch or dinner today -- the MIXED SEAFOOD WITH OYSTER SAUCE.

Serves  3
Prep Time  30 minutes (includes seafood preparation)
Cooking Time  10 minutes


  • 750 g seafood (any one or a combination of crabs, prawns, squid, clams, mussels, etc)
  • 3 pcs red onion, diced
  • 3 stalks spring onions, chopped
  • 1 pc medium-sized ginger, sliced into strips (the ginger is added to lessen, if not eliminate, that fishy taste)
  • 7 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 3 pc green chili pepper (siling haba), chopped (lessen if you only want it mildly spicy)
  • 3 tsp olive oil
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Seafood Preparation:
  • CRABS - cut into 2 or 4 sections if very big. Steam crabs for 5 minutes.
  • PRAWNS - Steam prawns for 5 minutes. (You can steam it with the crabs. :-D)
  • SQUID - Clean squid and cut into 1 inch long sections or cut into rings.
  • CLAMS/MUSSELS - Boil until the shells open. 

  1. You can opt to remove the shrimp, crab, clams and mussels from its shell for easy cooking and eating.
  2. When cooking squid, use the 1/20 rule. Cook it not more than a minute or, for 20 minutes. Anything in between makes it rubbery and tough.
  3. Do not overcook the seafood to avoid dry texture.
  4. Careful in adding the salt for seasoning, the Oyster sauce is already salty.

Cooking Procedure:
  1. Using a big wok, sauté in olive oil the garlic until golden brown.
  2. Add ginger and onions, sauté for a minute more.
  3. Add water and bring to a boil.
  4. Add the seafood, except the squid.
  5. Boil for 5 minutes.
  6. Add the oyster sauce.
  7. Season with salt and pepper.
  8. Add the chopped long green chili.
  9. Mix well and simmer for 1 minute.
  10. Mix in the squid and cook for an additional minute.

Happy eating! Enjoy your weekend! :-)
