  • If you don隆炉t have Chinese Cooking Rice Wine,  you can use other strong spirits instead. For example, Tequila and Chivas Cognac, they both worked perfectly.
  • A lot of people always ask which brand to use as they find it difficult to choose when confronting in front of so many different brands. Amoy and Lee Kum Kee are both long established & reliable brands in Hong Kong. 
  • XO sauce is created in 1980s in Hong Kong, it is a spicy seafood sauce. You can also find it in Wikipedia. You can use it the same as Chili sauce (with noodles or in cooking), e.g. Stir fried broccoli with fresh scallops and XO sauce.
