About this piece:
This bitter melon dish is a staple at my family's dinner table. This style of stuffing and braising this superfood originates in Hakka cuisine, but is commonly eaten by Cantonese families at home. There are many ways to eat this medicinal gourd, such as scrambled with eggs, but nothing beats the stuffed version with fish, mushroom, and Chinese black bean sauce. My paternal grandparents were Hakka people who settled in Guangzhou and prepared this for their children. Now I make this as a way to celebrate my family members and their tastes that resulted in this specific version of the recipe I was taught (dried squid instead of dried shrimp). Be warned, if you have not had Bitter Melon, it is an aquired taste!
