"The Longevity Vegetable" - It's Sweet Potato Leaves! Beneficial for Vision, Digestion, and Blood Pressure Control. Middle-aged and Elderly Should Eat it Regularly!


Introduction: It is recommended that middle-aged and elderly individuals, especially those over 60 years old, eat this vegetable regularly to improve their physical condition and memory.


After the "Minor Heat" comes the scorching "Major Heat." As the saying goes, "During Major Heat and Minor Heat, steam and boil your food." This phrase accurately describes the characteristics of this hot season. It feels like being in a "steam sauna," hot and humid! Therefore, in such hot and humid weather, our daily diet should be light and nutritious, and cooking methods should be more suitable for steaming and boiling.


As we all know, deep-sea fish are very nourishing. Especially for middle-aged and elderly individuals and children, eating deep-sea fish regularly has many health benefits. Today, we recommend a highly nutritious deep-sea fish - the Dragonet (commonly known as the Mandarin fish or Sicklefish). It is one of China's traditional and precious fish varieties, known for its tender meat and rich content of protein, DHA, and various nutrients, making it highly favored by many. Regular consumption of this Dragonet can supplement protein in the body and help strengthen physical fitness. Moreover, it provides essential nutrients (DHA) to the brain, which is crucial for enhancing memory.


Every 100 grams of Dragonet contains approximately 17.7 grams of protein, while 100 grams of milk contains only about 3 grams of protein. So, instead of just drinking milk, it's better to eat more deep-sea fish! Today, Chef Cai Cai wants to share a new way of cooking Dragonet, boneless, and free of any fishy taste. It's tender and flavorful. For those who like it, let's try it together!


Chef Cai Cai's Tip: Regarding Dragonet, there are some related considerations, which I've mentioned at the end of the article. Before eating, remember to check them out.


[Steamed Dragonet with Enoki Mushrooms]


Ingredients: One Dragonet, a small handful of enoki mushrooms, a small piece of ginger, two spring onions, five cloves of garlic, one teaspoon of oyster sauce, one teaspoon of soy sauce, one tablespoon of peanut oil.


[Cooking Steps]


Step 1: Peel the skin off one Dragonet, clean it, and cut it into small pieces. Finely chop five cloves of garlic, rinse a small piece of ginger and two spring onions, and set them aside. (Note: The flesh of Dragonet is similar to that of Barramundi. Please pay attention when purchasing.)


Step 2: Mix the shredded onions, ginger, and Dragonet pieces in a bowl, marinate for 15 minutes to enhance flavor and remove any fishy smell.


Step 3: Next, add one teaspoon of oyster sauce, one teaspoon of soy sauce, one tablespoon of peanut oil, and the chopped garlic to the wok. Stir-fry until fragrant and then remove from heat.


Step 4: Wash the enoki mushrooms and arrange them at the bottom of a plate. Place the Dragonet pieces on top of the enoki mushrooms, and then drizzle them with the garlic sauce.


Step 5: Steam the dish for 8 minutes after the water boils. Finally, sprinkle some chopped spring onions and serve.


[Chef Cai Cai's Warm Reminder]


What foods should not be eaten with Dragonet?

Dragonet should not be eaten with beer, persimmons, eggplants, or hawthorn to avoid stomach pain, diarrhea, poisoning, or gout.


Who should avoid eating Dragonet?

Although Dragonet is delicious and nutritious, it may not be suitable for everyone. People who are allergic to seafood, suffering from acute gastrointestinal problems, or experiencing gout flare-ups, as well as individuals with physical injuries, should avoid consuming it.
