Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine oil and garlic in a large, heavy skillet or wok and cook over medium-high heat until the garlic sizzles and releases its aroma.
  2. Add the spinach and cook for 1 minute; gently turn to expose all the leaves to the heat.
  3. Add the fish sauce, pepper, and water, tossing well, then cook (turning often) until the spinach is wilted and tender (1-2 minutes).
  4. Transfer to a deep platter, sauce and all, and serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.
