The Best Recipe to Stir Fry Bitter Melon

Bitter melon is a vegetable that probably every kid who grew up in southern China hated. It is nutritious and has lots of health benefits, so parents tend to force the kids. This is the recipe that my mom got me hooked on eating bitter melon; that is how delicious it is. Her secret ingredient is fried dace cured with fermented black beans or what we call 豆豉鲮鱼. It tastes kind of like jerky but made with fish, and it is packed with the umami flavor, which makes the bitter melon extra yummy.
