Shaoxing Goji Chicken (花雕杞子雞煲)

by · 16 comments
Traditionally, this Shaoxing Goji Chicken is a claypot dish made in winter days. I reckon this dish can be enjoyed on any days throughout the year. It’s so tasty with splendid aroma, perfectly goes with steamed rice.

I like the colour contrast of this chicken dish. It’s so appealing to the family’s eyes. Once it’s served on our dining table, everyone was eager to dig in and taste.

This Singapore chilli prawn dish is one of my favourite seafood dishes. The prawns are succulent and taste so wonderfully good with the home-made delicious sweet chilli sauce. This dish is really quick and easy to make.

It tastes salty, sweet and sour with a hint of hotness. No worries, the hotness is very mild. My family found it’s just right. Having said that, you can adjust the amount of red chillies and ginger according to your preference.

by · 25 comments
When I first learned to wrap sticky rice dumplings (鹹肉糭) for celebrating Dragon Boat festival, this was the easiest method I went for. It's so much fun. The dumplings tasted so great.

Cantonese Sticky Rice Dumplings01

Sticky rice dumpling (Zongzi 糭子 in Chinese) is a classic Chinese food often eaten for celebrating Dragon Boat Festival. It’s mainly made of glutinous rice, stuffed with seasoned pork belly, salted duck egg yolks or many different fillings, then wrapped in bamboo leaves, cooked in boiling water.

My family especially loves the Cantonese sticky rice dumplings and would love to have them all the time through out the year, either for breakfast or lunch.

There are two camps of how to eat these dumplings, dipping with soy sauce or going with white sugar. So, guess which way my family loves to go for? Sugar. In fact, either way is fantastic and delicious.

Tomato is a healthy food, not very expensive and can be easily found throughout the year. Long time ago, I read an article on The World’s Healthiest Foods talking about the antioxidant function of lycopene that tomatoes contain:

Baked Lemongrass Prawn Parcel

by · 2 comments
This baked prawn dish is absolutely delicious as all the prawns (shrimps) are submerged in a rich-flavours and fragrant lemongrass marinade, enclosed and baked in a paper parcel. You can imagine how fragrant the prawns will be after the lemongrass aroma imparted into them.

Best of all, making this delicious dish is fuss-free. All you need is to marinate the prawns 15 minutes before popping them in a preheated oven.
