Festive Prawns Wrap Pinwheels (时节虾风车卷饼)

“Recipe & Food that makes life easy”
“使生活变得轻松的食谱和食物”

Like how we live in this modern and action-packed world, most of us have to juggle between work and life. Hence, it has increasingly become a challenge to enjoy a nutritious meal at home. With people today preferring more inventive food options that allow them to get hands-on and creative with their meals, wraps are gaining popularity as “the choice” of nutritious convenience food.

Constantly innovating to encourage creativity in food preparation, Mission Foods has launched a new Supersoft formula to its best-seller – the Original Wrap wraps. The Supersoft wrap is softer, more flexible, and has a buttery mouthfeel for a wholesome meal experience. Better now, this super soft wrap can be served as warm or cold wrap, and still remain soft.

Louisiana Seafood Boil

“Are you ready for a feast?”

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. :) 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).

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. :)

Most importantly, with similar ingredients and steps from my previous recipe, it is never a chore to cook this for your reunion dinner and/ or gathering with friends and relatives. Yes, to the cook, it would not be a difficult dish to prepare. As to the diners, this dish should be great, too, as you do not have to peel the prawn shell during your meal. If that’s what you hate about eating prawns, they are all shelled in this recipe of mine! More
