“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.
“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. :)
500g of medium sized whole prawns, trimmed
5-6 thin slices of Dong Quai (当归片)
1 tablespoon of Hua Diao rice wine
1 teaspoon of wolfberries
1 thick slice of ginger, peeled
Pinch of garlic salt
Pinch of brown sugar

“Delicious hawker food? Now home-cook it yourself! It’s yummilicious….”
Please allow me to pause for a post on my confinement food recipes, I couldn’t wait to share my new cooking of this famous Singapore hawker specialty food with you! Another Singapore hawker food, which I have successfully cooked at home (laugh)! Thank you for “LIKE”ing this on my Facebook Fan Page.

“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. :)
“Many people tried to cook this failed dismally, but it would never be you! Here’s my simple and dainty prawn dish for you.”
I never thought such delicious prawn dish could be assembled that simple, initially. It might not look as beautiful as what the famous restaurant presents, but you would be impressed by the taste, or the simple steps found in this recipe.
If you are interested to make this, here is the recipe.
Do feel free to cook this for the older kids. My girl liked it a lot! However, you may want to reduce the amount of wasabi paste to just 1 teaspoon or lesser. Don’t intimidate the children by its pungency, especially if it is going to be their first taste of this dish. Make them like it, they will love you more. :)
