Shrimps Stir-Fried With Fresh Lily Bulbs and Sugar Snap Peas
Edmond LUK, registered dietitian (Canada) and Training and Development Officer of Hong Kong Dietitians Association said, "Natural flavourings such as garlic, shallot, ginger and spring onion enhance the flavour of the dish. As such, there is little need for salt, which is good news for people with hypertension. Fresh lily bulbs are high in potassium, which can help regulate blood pressure, although people with kidney dysfunction should use caution."
