You dont need a recipe, very simple to make..stuffed snake beans with fish paste ( add some chopped waterchesnut and season with salt, sugar and pepper) , lay bottom with a small piece of cabbage (as not to stick to the plate)..arrange like snake shape, steam for 10mins..
Pour pumpkin gravy ( pumpkin puree, chicken stock and seasongs) on stuffed snake beans..This year is water snake, so this dish look like water snake swim on golden river, hehehe..
* this dish was inspired by a dish that serve in a restaurant..
