XO Sambal Stuffed Squid (XO叁巴酿鱿鱼)

Post & Recipe in English and Chinese (中英食谱)
“Love this, if you like it; Like this, if you hate it. 喜欢的会爱上它;讨厌的会喜欢它.”

My way of surf & turf, meat in squid. Cooking the relatively bland squid dish with a good recipe is essential. I have mine which I think goes really well with just a plate of steamy hot rice! Even for someone who doesn’t like squid, you wouldn’t be resisting it!

有别于一般传统的水陆佳肴,这是我的呈现方式,猪肉酿鱿鱼。最主要的,是在于如何把最单调乏味的鱿鱼配上美味的食谱。我的烹调方法就自认为最配饭的!即使是不喜欢吃鱿鱼的你也会吃上好几口的!

Braised Seafood Mee Sua (焖海鲜面线)

“Get hooked on my seafood treats with crisped Mee Sua.”

Mee Sua, or you call it vermicelli, a Chinese noodle dish which you eat it especially during birthday to symbolise longevity. Mee sua simply means long noodle thread (面线). Usually, mee sua is made into very thin strand, and it’s brittle when cooked. The apperance of Mee Sua is normally in whitish colour, and to be sold in to a box of 5 – 6 bundles. This type of Mee Sua is good to make into soup noodle.

I did not use the usual whitish bundles in this recipe, in fact. I used the crisped (pre-fried) type. Never heard of it? I have first spotted this crisped version in the wet market, last Sunday when a lady was buying 2 packets of it at the same store. She recommended it to me over my hesitation with the noodle choices, and commented that this crisped Mee Sua gets softened quicker than crisped Ee-fu noodle, to shorten the braising time. It’s also easier to chew, especially for younger children.
