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.
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!
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.
Yes, it's my birthday! To thank all my friends & bloggers for their warmth wishes @ Facebook & to reward readers for their support to this site, I’m gonna introduce you to one of my family's favourite dish. This is also the fave food of one of the China’s Four Great Beauties, Xi Shi (西施). She is said to be “so entrancingly beautiful that fish would forget to swim & sink away from the surface when she walks by”.
People lose their appetite for a variety of reasons: stress, illness, fatigue etc. Nevertheless, we need nourishment to recover. Wherever I'm indispose or have no appetite, I'd normally prefer a soupy diet. A Consommé or rice porridge usually satisfies me best. Today, I’d like to introduce to you my home-made Oriental “remedy” that’s nutritious & at the same time, stimulating & perks up any moods. This colouful dish attracts any fussy kids too.
A delicious Kelantanese specialty and usually served with choices of sides such as Kelantan Ayam Percik, Sambal Kelapa, Solok Lada and Ikan Goreng Tepung.
These tasty spring rolls are packed with vegetables, seafood and pork. Perfect for a party or weekend lunch. Most major supermarkets sell frozen spring roll pastry.
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.
