Cold Crab Pasta Salad Recipe – Using onion raita as salad dressing

This Crab Pasta Salad Recipe was inspired by the Onion Raita I made earlier. Like what I’ve mentioned in my previous post, the raita is a very flexible side dish which you can eat with biryani or use it as a salad dressing like what I’ve done here. Normally when we buy Greek yogurt from […]

Watermelon Feta Mint Salad Recipe

It is Christmas Eve today but the festive atmosphere is obviously missing. Christmas is supposed to be my favourite occasion but I feel so drained of emotions these couple of days – I don’t even know what’s going on sometimes. Maybe I’m just trying to run away from reality – even if it was just […]

Okra Salad Recipe (with prawns)

Previously I always tried to avoid the okra or what’s better known here in Singapore as ladies’ fingers. They have this gooey slime that just doesn’t appeal to me. And it’s only recently that I’ve sort of developed a liking for these pod vegetables. Having survived an episode of illness/surgery probably does change a person’s […]

Kewpie’s Roasted Sesame Dressing and Smoked Salmon Salad

I made this Smoked Salmon Salad during one of the festive dinner parties I hosted a few months back and all of my guests loved it. Not because the smoked salmon (store-bought), vegetables (raw) or olives (pickled) were fantastic but because they enjoyed the smooth and nutty dressing that came with the salad. Lol. So […]

Soba Noodle Salad Recipe and Kewpie Sesame Soy Sauce Dressing

I first came across this new Kewpie product when I was doing grocery shopping at Fairprice sometime last year. It was retailing at about S$5.80 per 210ml bottle. Bought one bottle, tried it and just loved that savoury & nutty flavour that made salads taste really yummy. Couple of months later, I was shopping at […]

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 […]

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. […]

Sweet & Spicy Crab Stick Salad Recipe

I don’t normally fancy those packet imitation crab sticks that much because they are just like artificially-flavoured & artificially-coloured fish cakes. However, when I came across this crispy crab stick crackers at a temporary makeshift snacks stall in my neighbourhood, I thought it would be fun to try making the same at home. And yes, so I […]

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 […]

Pasta Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing Recipe

Every now and then, I like to make a salad for dinner on the first or second weeknight especially after a weekend of non-stop indulgence which is all I crave to detoxify myself from inside out, lol. For this pasta salad recipe, I made a wholegrain mustard dressing that was inspired by a side salad I had […]

Tempeh, Tofu & Avocado Salad Recipe

This is another rendition of my Egg, Bacon & Avocado Salad Recipe that I just made up on the spot the other day for lunch after I came back from gym. While I decided to keep the hard-boiled egg in this, I substituted the bacon with firm tofu and tempeh (fermented soybeans) hence making this a […]

Thai Chicken Salad Recipe

Recently I had been experimenting with Thai food again like pad thai, tom yum soup and this very appetising salad which I had it on its own as a light brunch. The aromatic and pungent smell of the ginger was balanced out by the sweet, salty, sour and spicy flavours of the other components in the […]

Pan-fried Chicken with Rockmelon Salad Recipe

Recently I had been trying to experiment with different combinations of fruits and vegetables to make a variety of healthy sides just so I wouldn’t have to repeat the usual. Inspired by my favourite parma ham and rockmelon pairing, I just wondered if the melon would go with a simple pan-fried chicken breast. Seemed really plain especially when […]

Tuna Steak with Beans & Pasta Salad Recipe

The husband prefers a higher protein diet these days because of his regular body-building and weight-lifting workouts. When we found really affordable tuna steaks from Fassler Gourmet the last time we were there, he’s totally into tuna now because it’s meaty in terms of texture and it’s a great source of lean protein with very little […]

Pan-Seared Scallops & Crispy Bacon Salad Recipe

I can never resist Hokkaido scallops that are always plump, succulent and sweet. Though they are a bit pricey for home cooking, I really don’t mind treating ourselves every now and then. And I think the best way to cook them is to pan-sear them quickly on a hot pan so the insides remain tender […]

Gado Gado Recipe

I remembered there was a time when I was in Primary 4 when the form teacher mentioned that tempeh (fermented soy beans) has high nutritional value but my classmates weren’t sure of what tempeh was except me because it was an ingredient that my Granny loved to cook with and I grew up eating. I […]
