Amoy Recipe Inspiration

Oriental Food Specialists Amoy Launch New Range

The popular oriental food sauce specialists, Amoy, have launched ten brand new products to the Amoy portfolio which are available exclusively in most oriental supermarkets across the UK. This post aims to give you some Amoy recipe inspiration!

Hong Kong based Amoy began producing soy sauce in Xiamen, China over 100 years ago in 1908! Unsurprisingly, it is one of the most recognised food sauce brands in Southeast Asia and the UK and their products originate from tried and tested recipes used by generations of consumers and chefs. Not only are Amoy’s products high quality, their range is designed to be convenient ensuring you can whip up some great recipes hassle free.

Below are the two recipes that I made in under 15 minutes:

Braised Soy Sauce Prawns Recipe

These Braised Soy Sauce Prawns were whipped up in only 10 minutes, including preparation – the marinade was simply divine.


  • 10 large prawns
  • 1 tbsp Amoy Minced Ginger
  • 1 tbsp Amoy Minced Garlic
  • 2 tbsp Amoy First Extract Dark Soy Sauce
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 hot chillis
  • Bunch of spring onions

  • Remove the outside of the prawns, add the cornstarch and mix well with the prawns.
  • Heat a little oil in a frying pan / wok and boil the prawns for 2 minutes in medium heat.
  • Add the Amoy Minced Ginger and Minced Garlic and the hot chilli and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add the Amoy First Extract Dark Soy Sauce and stir fry for a further 2 minutes.
  • Serve with the spring onions and chilli.

The First Extract Soy Sauce is made from the first pressing of naturally brewed sun light soy beans with no added MSG, flavour enhancer or artificial colours and adds real depth of flavour to your dish.

Fried Green Beans with Minced Pork

The prawns were paired with Fried Green Beans with minced pork using Amoy’s Minced Garlic and Mapo Sauce. This was my first time cooking with Mapo Sauce and it was amazing – it’s made from Amoy fermented salted soybean, garlic and chilli. An excellent sauce with a real kick!


  • 300g green beans
  • 150g minced pork
  • 2 tbsp Amoy Mapo Sauce
  • 1 ½ tsp Amoy Minced Garlic
  • 1tsp Amoy Pure Sesame Oil
  • 1 ½ tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp water
  • Sprinkle of sugar and ground pepper

  • Cut off the ends of the green beans and wash. Cut in half depending on the size you want.
  • Heat the pan with the oil. Shallow fry the beans for 5 minutes and drain with water.
  • Fry the minced pork. Once cooked add in the green beans and add the Amoy Mapo Sauce, sugar and water.
