A simple fried noodle dish that you can eat for lunch or dinner.
For my dinner hosting a Japanese guest, I’ve made this appetizer to kick off the evening, which has later been featured @ PetitChef. Comparing to my previous Ceviche, I’ve added green apples for an uplifting touch & topped it off with caviar.
These sinful orangey balls help to enhance the flavour of food, especially when they’re mashed, smeared generously over your dish & then sautéed in a hot wok. While most places serve with shells, I prefer mine peeled & deep-fry with batter to let the egg-yolk “envelope” each prawn. For the dare-devils, here’s my version of Salted Egg-Yolk Prawns with Shichimi.
A long time family favourite. This recipe was handed down to me by my mother-in-law. There are several versions of chilli crab recipes in Asia. This Malaysian version is sweet and savoury and the egg adds a beautiful texture. I have this for lunch or dinner and served with steamed rice and friends have been requesting for this recipe ever since.
This delicious Thai-style soup has coconut milk, prawns, mushrooms and spinach. Chicken may be substituted for the prawns. Either way, I love this soup anytime!
This spicy condiment is delicious with either fried or soup based noodles, with grilled meats or use it as a base for cooking chicken or vegetable dishes.
A very traditional paella with chorizo, chicken, peas, squid, mussels and prawns. The saffron and chorizo give this one-pan meal a gorgeous red hue. A paella pan is recommended.
A delicious Kelantanese specialty and usually served with choices of sides such as Kelantan Ayam Percik, Sambal Kelapa, Solok Lada and Ikan Goreng Tepung.
I love the experience of eating fish head curry with my fingers and off banana leaves. If you're adventurous, try sucking the eyeballs! You can also use fish steaks instead of a fish head. Ready-blended fish curry powder is available at the supermarket or wet market.
I found some really nice & cheap mussels at the supermarket & was in a mood for some unhealthy indulgence. I love those at Mos Burgers but at a price of S$3.30 for 5 pieces, it's much more economical to D.I.Y. The tray of mussels I bought today was just S$1 for 500g. There were about 18 pieces. Wow! Of course, I've no doubt the quality difference but at just a dollar for some fresh mussels, it's good enough. After all, I'm gonna deep-fry them anyway.
