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.
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”.
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.
