Light marinate chicken thighs, stir fry onions, add celery (it was on the counter), out. Chicken, add in veg, sauce, finish with slurry.

    Eat with pan fried noodles, repeat. Bride liked it better second go, as did I. I got the oily part of the original dish right :) but there still seems something missing.

    Side note, Richwell Market on Dempster does not sell Jimmy's Sate sauce though they have two kids of Lee Kum Kee and one by Yeo's. There are also Korean style BBQ sauces and a few bottles of Sweet Baby Ray's for good measure.

    Gary, did you get those noodles from Richland or somewhere else? I was at H Mart today and had trouble finding noodles that thin in their case-o-noodles...

    I don't remember. Though I have bought that type noodle at both Richwell Market on Dempster and H-Mart Niles. Both have them in stock every time I look. They are ubiquitous, typically found refrigerated.

    If not this exact type/brand similar.

    Finally spotted Jimmy's Sate Sauce at Starlight Market on 28th/Wentworth, right below Furama. Image

    Assuming you mean for Bullhead stir-fry and not my cover girl measurements, not sure, I did not measure. I should have taken concise notes, easier to move flavor direction, but did not.

    Next time I use Bullhead I will measure, take notes, share. But, as my wife just got a no lizardfish Tramp Stamp tattoo it might be a while.

    Tai Nam on Broadway just south of Argyle has the Bullhead Shallot sauce cans.

    Fresh lizardfish is available at 88 Marketplace. It's the species known as bumalo, or Bombay duck.

    Thanks for the report. I haven't come across it yet, but it's good to know it's around.

    I haven't tried it yet, but hope to soon. I'll report back.

    Wow, that looks eerily some sort of Maesri curry paste . . . probably not, though, right?

    Good eye! I was so focused on the ingredients I forgot to take a picture of the front of the can. It's Maesri all right, but not exactly curry paste. Maesri Namya Noodle Sauce.

    Good stuff! I made a very enjoyable meal with quite a high lizardfish content: 1) Rice noodles with Maesri namya sauce, straight from the can, diluted and simmered; 2) Smashed cucumbers and pickled daikon, both in a sauce containing Bullhead BBQ and Lao Gan Ma fried chili in oil; 3) Steamed baby bok choi, simmered briefly in diluted namya sauce (mostly to heat it up, though it took on quite a bit of flavor); 4) Hard-boiled egg, not tampered with.

    I like the sauce a lot. It's definitely fishy, but mellowed with coconut and sugar. There's a definite chili kick at the end, but not too extreme. Making a bowl of noodles with namya sauce is about as fast and easy as it gets, and the results far exceed the effort. I'll try to always have a can or two in my cupboard.
