Chinese Fuzzy Melon
Note: Don’t be fooled the Chinese Fuzzy Melon is not a melon, and can be prepared much like zucchini.
“Once heard that fuzzy melon is rarely found outside the Asian markets. If you do get it, try to consume it fresh and avoid storing it. The longer it is stored, the more its pleasant flavour will be lost. Before cooking, rub off the skin of the fuzzy melon with a small knive lengthway, its hairy skin is too thin to be removed by a peeler. Then cut it into slices or cubes. Because of its mild flavour, the melon is usually stir fried with meat, shrimps, ginger and shallots.”-Taste Hong Kong
Have a great week!
