My way of surf & turf, meat in squid. Cooking the relatively bland squid dish with a good recipe is essential. I have mine which I think goes really well with just a plate of steamy hot rice! Even for someone who doesn’t like squid, you wouldn’t be resisting it!
Having to bake so many cakes Regularly, I was kinda feeling lazy. It might also be lacking of surprise element to the birthday celebration.
Making a sushi cake not only special, sushi is also our favorite food, especially with salmon as its filling. Hence, I decided to make this as a birthday surprise, at the same time, our quick and simple dinner meal. I thought this was the best simple celebration to mark this day.
Yields 8″ sushi cake
3 cups of Japanese rice (I used Calrose rice)
1 tablespoon of icing sugar
1 tablespoon of Apple vinegar
1 teaspoon of Mirin
Planning for any gathering, or feeling like fixing a feast for your loved ones? For the seafood connoisseur, here’s my easy and delicious all-in-one seafood treat.
This is especially great to cook for a group epicureans to get together. Chatting, laughing and having great food together… Great food, great home cooked food, but minus the hassle of cooking up extensive dishes. You would still be able to impress your guests with this lucious meal. :)
Yes, pasta is one of our staples at home. We all loved pasta, of all kinds. Yet to find out the best pasta brand, I used dried pastas which were easily available in the market, most of the time. I preferred organic pasta, if given a choice.
Clams, are also my favorite seafood. I personally thought clams are versatile and easy to handle. Minimal condiments would be needed to bring out its full flavor. So, cooking pasta with clams is no weirdo to many people. It simply is a brilliant idea as the pasta would just soak up the natural taste of the clams, making every strand of noodle taste extra flavorful.
Crisped and browned on the surface, but tender and moist inside. That’s how my grilled Salmon was. I usually cooked this way when I wanted to have pasta or noodles in sauce, or rice with other saucy dishes.
I wouldn’t serve as it is as a main course, if I did not make a sauce to go along, even though it wasn’t dried at all. I just thought it would be a bit plain.. unless to make some wet sides eg baked beans, gravies baby corns, mashed potato with sauce, etc. Salsa or cheesy spinach might be good, too. Those would do.. Alright, I should do the Western main course style the next time. :)
