Sautéed Prawns in Yuzu Sauce (柚子蜜煎大虾)

“Not much an appetite to eat? I have cooked these juicy shrimps with some tantalizing citrus sauce to whet your appetite.”

This recipe I saw in a TVB cooking show (created by a popular HK celebrity) represents an interesting variation on the conventional sweet & sour flavor of the prawn dishes. This recipe incorporates the rich and refreshing marmalade, and good thing is, you probably need not to purposely buy this ingredient for the dish, it might already been seating in your drink pantry all these while… What this recipe add is the Honeyed Yuzu (called it Yuja in Korean) marmalade that uses to make drinks. read more

Mini Shrimp Toast

“My creation of shrimp toast, have it like crunchy bread squares, or luxury version of French toast with shrimp paste topping.”

This cute and handy open-face toast is often a hit for snack/ tea time when small and light bites are needed, and minced shrimp is the shortcut tips of the busy day. However, all shrimp toasts are not created equal, mine is tailored to taste homely with regards for your health… less oil, less fry.

Children will love it, if you serve with an addition of salad cream or mayonnaise. It creates kind of refreshing bites together with the soft and moist shrimp paste in the palate. But for me, as a regular diet-watcher, no cream, of course, I sprinkled a touch of Italian herbs and coarsely grounded black pepper when served. read more

Chicken Wing in Honeyed Char Siew Sauce (密糖叉烧汁鸡翼)

Simply easy, simple savoury

One of my readers was asking for a recipe of 密汁鸡 (Pronounciation in Mandarin as “Mi Zhi Ji”) in my FB Fanclub. Without her further elaboration on the dish title, I assumed she wanted the honeyed chicken. However, I had an urge of making the honey char siew flavour version instead, last weekend. So, I cooked this for this time, and I promised to cook the other honey chicken next time, ok (smile)?

Well, it’s still worth cooking this recipe even if it’s not the desired recipe as it was so delicious! For the sake of the appetite of your kids, cook this, anyway. They will certainly love the sweet savoury taste! read more

Pan-Fried Salmon in Homemade Teriyaki Sauce

Easy Japanese recipe of Teriyaki Salmon – 照り焼き鮭

Today’s second day of new year, 2010.

I was still in the new year mood, having a new resolution of gastronomy, I started exploring in different kind of cuisine. Yesterday, I had an urge for cooking Japanese food for the next dinner, which was today’s. So, I went to NTUC Fairprice Finest to get the necessary ingredients as this store is located not far from my place and it has quite comprehensive selections of Japanese food ingredients and condiments, made of both locals and direct import from Japan.. Yeah, I wanted to make a Japanese cuisine for dinner for my loved ones! read more

Fusion-style Chicken Chop

“When ‘East meets the West’ Chicken Chop… Check it out!”

It was unexpectedly tasty.. I loved  Western food, and was pretty head cracking for how to make my cooking much more impressive than usual, just for the special occassion like Christmas celebration.

I was just trying out casually, without any firmer clue in mind, I used ‘common sense’ to do the seasoning on my chicken chop, and hoped it will not taste too far out from imagining. To play even safer, and also worried the taste of my Western dishes wouldn’t be good enough for the meal, I even bought an instant mushroom and white wine sauce packet from the store, thought this savoury sauce (which I have tried before) could go along with my chicken chop, just in case the chop tasted too bland :p.. read more

Aromatic Pan-Fried Five Spice Meat Cake (香煎五香肉饼)

“The very own homemade meat cake to be marked 100% by your kids!”

Just like what my reader, Anne, told me that her son rated her cooking with 100 marks, for some pork dishes cooked with my recipes. I created this pork meat cake,and hope Anne (and any of you) could try and receive compliments from her loved ones again (winking smile)! My little one did praise me for making this meat cake for her.. As for her who does not really like pork, she loved this meat cake so much! This meat cake creates aromas in the bites. And I loved it with a touch of five spice flavour, not too strong but enough to taste its fragrance. However, not many children like five spice flavour, if your kid doesn’t, omit the five spice powder and substitute with some ground white pepper. Yeah, just call it a pan-fried meat cake dish will do (smile). read more
