Lak-Zi Sauce

Lak-zi sauce can be found in many oriental kitchens although I think not everyone prepare it but I believe most authentic Chinese restaurants will have it. The reason is that this sauce is good to cook with many type of meats and seafood and create a lot of possibilities. Most chefs will prepare their own and thus most restaurants will have slight different taste. I tried cooking this sauce with fillets, seafood, meats. beancurds and I quite like them. This sauce also good as dipping sauce for fried chicken, fried nugget and fried beancurd.

I will prepare some and keep it, as it is my solutions to a lot of cooking when I need to prepare something fast. I even mixed it with my instant noodle and some minced meat and vegetable to have a nice meal fast.
