Fried XO Pork

“Use of air-fryer to roast the pork, before stir frying in wok to complete the dish.”

It was an impromptu idea to making of this dish. Just wanting to cook a dish tasted robust and yet able to feed everyone at home. I thought it was easy to cook, and pleasant to taste.

Sounded deceptively complex, but in fact, the dish was easy and quick to assemble. I air fried the sliced meat to create some crispness to it before actually cooking in the wok. Air frying did help the seasoning sauce to fully absorb into the meat during the process. It also made the entire cooking less hassle with shortening of the wok-time. More

Grilled Mixed Herbs Salmon & Tomatoes (Air-Fried)

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. :)

Oh yes, this super easy and delicious fish dish is meant for the busy parents, working couples and moody simplistic personnel. Yes… It took merely 20 minutes, from preparation to cooked. You didn’t even need to marinate it. Quick yet healthy. If you liked, serve it with steamed rice, too! I did, at times. :D More

Cheesy Mashed Potato with Cream Sauce Gravy

“It’s a mashed potato well filled with gravy and delicious toppings.”

It looked like a mashed potato cake to me. It could be served as snack for tea, a side for dinner, and even a main for lunch. Homemade cheesy mashed potato is delicious.

I used the store-bought gravy pack which needed some assembly to be done. From Ikea food market. Yes, just to try out. It was tasty, indeed. (*Actual pic of the cream sauce pack was posted in my Instagram or FB page’s comment) More

Grilled Curry Cheese Prawns (Air-Fried)

“Curry with Cheese? Yes. One of the less-usual but the best combinations for a seafood dish.”

Actually this cheesy curry prawn dish could be cooked in various ways (of course), on a grill, in a frying pan, in air-fryer (with its non-stick grill pan), or even in a wok! This time, I chose air-frying. Yes, it was easy, no doubt. Its grill pan made the cooking even easier as it’s non stick. It was easier than having it cooked on the mesh basket. Get one and it would make all your grilling (fish, chicken, meat, etc) much easier.

For this recipe, I used an instant curry pack bought from supermarket. Any brand of these ready-packed curry pastes would do the job, but if you want to know which brand was used for this particular cooking, I used Singlong instant fish curry paste (*actual picture of the pack posted in my Instagram, and FB page under comment).

(It’s all about air-fry….)

It’s not impossible to fix up a scrumptious and healthy sandwich breakfast without going through extensive cooking process in the busy morning. Air-fryer might be an option.

I made an egg sandwich with creamy avocado with an air fryer. Of course, some would still find it easier to do the conventional way, on the stove. Either way, this recipe works. More

Singapore IT show was happening since two days back, and I got a great deal on a XL digital air fryer as an upgrade to my existing smaller one. I thought it would be a good to start using it to make some delicious food as soon as I could, as a form of reward to him. :)

This stuffed potato was delicious, suitable for all ages, and could be served as party snacks, or as a meal! With the help of air fryer, the potato was nicely baked. Its potato skin was crisped to its perfection. And, this recipe is surely a great way to hide away the vegetables! More

Seaweed Crisps (Air-Fried)

“One of the easiest air fried CNY snacks”

Yes, I considered this the easiest and relatively healthier snack for the Chinese Lunar New Year celebration, adding on to its healthier cooking method, air frying.

This snack could be made in various ways and flavors. No doubt, those added with seasonings taste better, at the same time, less healthy. I reckoned homemade with minimal (better types of) ingredients. Mine? Moderately good, in term of taste and nutritional value, good enough to let your older toddler to enjoy it. :) More
