Salted Egg Prawn Recipe 牛油黃金虾

This dish needs no further introduction 😉 It’s one of our local favourites and a must-order dish at any tze char stall which I also think is tasty and moreish enough to join the ranks of chicken rice and chilli crab as our national dish. Who doesn’t love salted egg, really? And with the combination […]

Prawn Aglio Olio Recipe

I can’t believe I’m now down with chickenpox (again) even though I already had it when I was younger. Most likely the previous occurrence wasn’t a full blown one so it’s back again after 20 years. Anyway the doc asked me to keep away from seafood but since I had so much prawns left in […]

Shovelnose Ray in Black Bean Sauce Recipe

I was looking for the regular stringray at the supermarket as I wanted to make BBQ Sambal Stingray but I ended up with a meaty slab of shovelnose ray instead, lol. What a find, as I don’t normally see it that often. It resembled shark meat which I had tried cooking with before so I […]

Smoked Salmon Yu Sheng Recipe for Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year has been a quiet one for me last week so I’m quite relieved that today is already 初五 (5th day of CNY). Though I started the day at the doctor’s getting my X-ray done for a knee & foot injury, I’m happy to see that most shops if not all have resumed […]

Spicy Stir Fried Tempeh with Crab Meat Recipe

Sounds like a weird dish eh? Well, my newest creation is kind of similar to my earlier Sweet & Spicy Tempeh & Tofu Stir Fry Recipe, both of which were inspired by my favourite sambal goreng dish. This time, I added a touch of fusion element by combining Asian & Western flavours. The tip is to use fresh crab […]

Thai Style Seafood Salad Recipe

I accompanied Dad to the temple the other day and then treated him lunch at his favourite Thai restaurant. Every time he would order seafood salad as a side to share and I could see how much he enjoyed that explosion of flavours – sweet, sour, spicy and salty – that really tickled our tastebuds and triggered our appetite. […]

Seafood Bee Hoon Soup Recipe

I really like making my own fish or assorted seafood soup at home because I can use a fish of my choice (most of the time cod as it’s not fishy) and top with as much ingredients as I want to make it into a hearty, wholesome yet very healthy meal. All we need is a […]

12 Easy Chinese New Year Recipes for Good Luck & Prosperity

With Chinese New Year just around the corner, everyone must have made or are making plans for the reunion dinner and/or CNY lunch. Some probably prefer to eat out to save the hassle of cooking and washing up. Some would probably turn to buffet catering to feed a large family. There is also the option of having […]

10 Easy Dinner Party Recipes That Will Wow Your Guests

The last week of December had got to be our busiest moment of entertaining guests, feasting and of course, fuelling my ultimate passion in cooking for others. The husband and I hosted three dinner parties on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day – the last two weren’t even pre-planned in advance! And we created a buffet (no […]

Soy Sauce Fried Batang Fish Recipe

Fish are really getting more and more expensive these days. Whenever I go marketing, it just pains me to buy that tiny slab of fresh cod (1 person’s portion or the most 2) at $10 a piece. The husband always comments that my cooking is more expensive than eating out, lol which I don’t deny […]

Seafood Marinara Spaghetti Recipe

I never really fancy bottled pasta sauces that much because they are often flat in texture (I like my sauce with bits and chunks) and contain way too much sodium. For my Seafood Marinara Spaghetti Recipe, I use diced tomatoes with no salt to create the sauce base and then just season it with enough salt […]

Mango Prawns Salad Recipe

I made this simple Mango Prawns Salad with inspiration from my other recipe, Cajun Spiced Salmon with Mango Salsa that was featured in Singapore’s Shape Magazine months ago. I loved the flavour of the Cajun spice mix that was further accentuated by the sweetness of the mango. The tartness & acidity from the lemon or lime juice just balanced […]

Sardines in Tomato Sauce with Onions Recipe

Inspired by what Gran used to do with a can of sardines when I was little. For convenience sake, it is all too easy to just heat up a can of sardines and eat it as it is but with just a little bit more work to dress it up with more fresh ingredients, canned […]

Singapore Chilli Crab Style Prawns Recipe

Singapore Chilli Crab is no doubt one of our iconic local dishes. While I do like to indulge in the chilli crab from Jumbo Seafood every now and then, nothing beats the flavoursome chilli crab that my maternal grandma used to make. I came across Violet Oon’s chilli crab recipe a while ago and it […]

Oven-Baked Salmon with Soba Noodles Recipe

  Soba or buckwheat noodles are a great choice of carbs to cook with because they have this somewhat nutty flavour and hence don’t really need complicated seasonings to dress it up. This is another healthy recipe that doesn’t require much prep work. I chose to oven-bake my salmon but of course you can pan-fry them […]

Fried Rice with Crispy Salmon, Lotus Root & French Beans Recipe

I absolutely adored this fried rice not only because the salmon was crispy but because the salmon imparted a wonderful aroma to the rice without making it taste fishy. The crunch from the lotus root and french beans simply added more textures too. And I chose brown rice over white rice for its high fibre and low-GI properties. An easy […]
