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.

“Dong Quai” Prawn

“Prawns in simple & quick cooking tonic Dong Quai soup, cook this during rainy or cold night, hearty and healthy.”

Dong Quai (“Dang Gui“, in Mandarin), or its Medical name, Angelica Sinensis, has a unique pleasant sweet taste. This Chinese herb is also known as female ginseng. However, it could be taking by the whole family, including my little boy. :)

5-6 thin slices of Dong Quai (当归片)
1 tablespoon of Hua Diao rice wine

Air-Fried Garlic Prawn Pasta

“You don’t need to pay restaurant price to get your no-frills ‘restaurant’ pasta”

In order to assemble quick and hassle free dinner, as I had to do up my rum raisin chocolate lava cake for supper, at the same time, I decided to air-fry a pasta dish.

Of course, you may cook this recipe as my usual ‘wok’ way, I just wished to save up the stirring and monitoring time in the cooking process so that I could fix up a supper dessert concurrently. Air-frying my pasta without the need of stir frying and watching out process, I was able to assemble our dinner within 15 minutes, and accomplished the two courses, from preparing to serving, both pasta and lava cake, within a total of 25 minutes.

Salted Egg Yolk Prawns (黄金虾)

“How can you miss the ‘Laughter‘ during this festive season?! Eat ‘Ha‘ (Prawn in Cantonese), and let it smother you with laugther and most of all,… the wealth.”

One of my readers, was checking out salted egg yolk prawns recipe, and I couldn’t remember that I had actually posted the recipe since a while ago (laughing). Oh well, I did tell her about it, just few days back. And this time, I am going to post another version of salted egg yolk prawns, for the healthy you, and all, for this coming Lunar New Year, of course (smile)!

I’ve also create an auspicious dish name for this dish, in Chinese, 黄金炒虾. It simply means stir-fry prawns with ‘gold’. The name emphasizes on the ‘gold‘ this time. Chinese likes good and symbolical things or words relating to gold, wealth, happiness, laughter, good luck, and etc, during the festive. I hope you like the dish and its name. :)
