Ginger & Chilli Celtuce

Stir fried celtuce

Look at what I found at the grocery today. It is celtuce! This is the first time I am able to buy it in Australia. It is nothing exotic back at home. But it was a little pleasant surprise to find it here.

Celtuce is kind of lettuce, also known as stem lettuce. People eat its long stem. You will need to peel its hard skin first and eat the tender part inside.


Celtuce (1), red chilli (1), pickled chilli (1), garlic (1 clove), ginger (same size as 1 clove of garlic), salt and canola oil (1 tablespoon).

What to do:

  1. Get rid of leaves of celtuce and peel it with knife. (It is not an easy task)
  2. Slice the peeled celtuce stem and run through it with tap water.
  3. Slice red chilli, pickled chilli, garlic and ginger.
  4. Heat 1 tablespoons of canola in a wok over medium heat, add Slice red chilli, pickled chilli, garlic and ginger, fry for 1-2 minutes. Then add sliced celtuce, fry for another 1-2 minutes and season to taste. (Make sure celture is still crunchy)
  5. Serve with some rice.
