Remove stems from choy sum, then cut the bunch crossways into 3 pieces and wash thoroughly.
Fill a pot with water and bring to the boil.

Using tongs, immediately remove choy sum from water and place on a serving plate.
Drizzle with oyster sauce and sesame oil.
In a small pot, heat peanut oil to smoking point and carefully pour over choy sum.
Essence: Fresh, cleansing, simple and satisfying!
