This homey dish,Stir-fried Prawns with Eggsis very popular in Chinese restaurants.It's so quick and easy to make at home.Best of all,it's absolutely tasty.

Fried Prawns with Eggs01

The prawns/shrimps used must be very fresh.Although I can't find any live prawns here,the frozen,raw ones are still good for making this dish.

This dish is like cooking scrambled eggs with prawns.Both of the smell and taste of the eggs with prawns are so good and tempting.No wonder many Chinese people love this dish.

This dish looks simple and easy to make.But frying smooth and silky eggs needs some practices and experiences.Is there any trick to help?

In Chinese cooking, steamed live fishis my first choice,not only because it's easy and quick,but also I can enjoy the fresh and natural taste of the fish.

Amongst all kinds of fish,salmon is my most favourite.I'd go for salmon sashimi without second thought.If there's no salmon available for sashimi or have too much salmon leftovers,this salmon cake recipe is a saver.I can't over state how tasty,nutritious and healthy these salmon cakes are.

Thedumplings in soup (上湯水餃)are really flavoursome as you'll have more ingredients and more texture in the fillings if you enjoy it in a traditional Hong Kong noodle restaurant.

Dumpling Soup03

Every time I went into a noodle shop in Hong Kong,I'd definitely order either wontonor dumpling noodle soup.Are there any big differences between these two noodle soups?The fillings of both are mainly pork mince and prawns.But for dumplings in soup (上湯水餃),there are some extras,wood ears,mushrooms and bamboo shoots.More ingredients mean more delicious.

Dumpling Soup01

Wood ear has a crisp texture.So you can imagine how balanced the texture of each dumpling you'd enjoy of every bite.When it comes to making your own dumplings in soup,you can skip anything except the wood ears.I just feel wood ear is the signature ingredient that makes these dumplings so special.

Mango pudding is our family's favourite dessert in summer.Especially in Australia,we can easily find juicy and sweet mangoes.Bowen (aka Kensington Pride,KP) is the best we think,so I usually buy Bowen mangoes to make dessert or just take them as it is after dinner.

Speaking of this mango pudding,a special ingredient is used in this recipe,that's evaporated milk.Yes,Hong Kong style desserts often use evaporated milk.Evaporated milk is handy,creamy and full of milky aroma.Only a bit of evaporated milk will make the pudding colour stand out,more attractive than just using milk or cream.

This steamed chicken with Sand Ginger powderdish is very simple and delicious.  It's a traditional Chinese dish,best served with steamed rice and ginger and scallion dipping.

Steamed Chicken with Ginger Powder01

Simple is the best.You can't imagine how nice the taste of this steamed chicken was.The chicken meat is so tender and silky smooth,steamed to just cooked.If you like the traditional,popular Chinese steamed chicken (白切雞),you have to try this dish as well,if you haven't.

Try to use organic or free-range chicken if you can to ensure the best result.Having said that,I used corn-fed chicken this time.So,that's why my steamed chicken was in bright,lovely yellow colour.The end result remained wonderfully good.

Beef Short Ribs with Radish

by ·1 comment
Thisbeef short ribs with radishis very delicious,comforting and nourishing.We like it to go with steamed rice.You might like it to go with noodle soup.It's all up to you.

Radish is used to be very expensive down under here.Recently,there are many beautiful radishes sold at a very cheap price,just under one dollar per kilo.They are young,juicy and sweet.

During Chinese New Year,I definitely go for making radish cake(or making radish cake in Instant Pot) for celebration without any doubts.I often like making many other different savoury dishes with radish throughout the year whenever I can get a beautiful radish for a cheap price.
