Add a little flavour to your Kitchen with Symphony & Jeremy Pang

As Jeremy Pang’s Salmon Bites in XO Onion Sauce was so tasty we decided to share another recipe from his debut cookbook, Chinese Unchopped.

Bringing you Flash-Fried Cabbage with Dried Chillies and Sweetened Soy – perfect as a side dish alongside an Asian-style banquet or for a vegetarian main.

You can see exactly how Jeremy Pang cooks up a storm in a Symphony Kitchen below.

Flash-Fried Cabbage with Dried Chillies and Sweetened Soy

Serves: 4 | Preparation Time: 10 minutes | Cooking Time: 5 minutes


          • 3 garlic cloves
          • 1 whole sweetheart cabbage
          • 1 medium ripe tomato
          • 5-10 large dried red chillies
          • 1-2 tablespoons vegetable oil

The Sauce

        • 2 tablespoons rice wine
        • 1 tablespoon chinkiang black rice vinegar
        • 1 tablespoon light soy sauce
        • 1/2 tablespoon granulated sugar
        • 1/4 teaspoon dark soy sauce
        • 1/2 teaspoon salt


          1. Finely slice your garlic cloves, chop your cabbage into large chunks and cut your tomato into eighths.  Combine your sauce ingredients in a small bowl.


          1. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable or garlic oil in a wok over a high heat until smoking-hot.
          2. Add the dried chillies and garlic to the wok and stir-fry for 30 seconds, then add the tomatoes and cabbage and stir-fry for another 1 minute, keeping the heat high.
          3. Pour your sauce into the wok, bring to a vigorous boil and stir-fry for a further 2-3 minutes, until the cabbage is tender but still crunchy and the sauce has reduced by a third.  Serve.
