We have three different chilli condiments that add complexity and flavour to this dish, but as they’re all added at the same time, it makes it very simple. You can make your own XO sauce, or just buy some off the shelf.
The bamboo shoots are added for their texture (make sure you wash them well). You could also add some fresh vegetables for crunch. It’s important to remember that these recipes are only a guideline and that you can drive the flavours and textures yourself — just remember to look for balance and to always taste before serving.
