It had been a great start this year for us and with many more potential food projects in making.

Lemongrass Prawns Hokkien Style

This dish is a very special dish, why?

My late dad taught me this dish, yes my late dad. He is a real cook and I think he learned from his aunt when he was young… I think. I seldom see this dish serve in any restaraunt which is strange. Yes it is my late dad’s recipe. This dish main ingredient is prawns and lemongrass. You need to cut lots of lemongrass to prepare this dish but not as difficult to prepare a dish called “ikan perut”and this dish is flavoured with fresh turmeric. So I recommended that Chef Steven Cheng to try this recipe and this is how it turn out.


400 gm large prawns
20 stalks lemongrass
1 inch fresh turmeric
1 big onion
4 bulbs garlic
3 chilli padi
1 cup coconut milk (1/2 cup double cream)

Unshelled the prawns and clean properly
Marinate the prawns with a pinch of salt and pepper
Thinly slice the heart of the lemongrass. Take about an inch.
Minced turmeric, onion, garlic and chilli padi
Deep fry the sliced lemongrass untill fragrant. Take them out.
Fry the minced onion,turmeric, garlic and chilli padi till fragrant.
Add in prawns, once cooked and in lemongrass.
Add in coconut milk and add in seasoning.
(* if you want a drier dish add in less coconut milk. )


This dish is lovely and smells so fragrant. This dish is specially prepared by Chef Steven Cheng.

Golden Pumpkin with Crab Meat Sauce

Yet another new and yet a simple dish that I am going to post today.

Pumpkin dish? I guess a lot of people include myself had tried to avoid pumpkin cause do not know what to do with it. It is hard outside and can also be hard inside if it is not ripe. I cannot resist this pumpkin cause I was so attracted to the colour, golden yellow. In Malaysia, we do a lot of frying in our dishes from fruits such as bananas to vegetables such as yams. So I decided to slow fried the slices pumpkin till there are cooked.


While waiting for the pumpkin to cook, I prepare the sauce to top the cooked pumpkin. Here I use fresh crab meat, slice mushroom and sticks of carrot. Heat up the wok with one tablespoon of cooking oil, fry some garlic then add the carrot, mushroom and crab meat.

Add a pinch of salt and white pepper, a tablespoon of oyster sauce, a teaspoon of dark soya sauce, a tablespoon of chinese wine and 4-5 tablespoon of water. Once boiled, add 1 tablespoon tapioca water to concerntrate the sauce.

Once the pumpkins are cooked, place them on a serving plate and top it with the cooked crab meat sauce.


Ingredients:

350g Yellow Pumpkin
100g Cooked Crab Meat
20g Sliced Mushroom
10g Carrot Sticks
1Tspn Oyster Sauce
1tspn Dark Soya Sauce
1tspn Chinese Wine
4-5 Tspn Water
1 tablespoon Tapioca Water
a pinch of salt and pepper
