Chicken and Prawn Rice

Chicken and Prawn Rice...

Chicken and Prawn Stirfry One of my favourite Chinese meals is chicken and prawn fried rice that I order about 8 of 10 times I have Chines takeout so I set out to find an easy to prepare alternative that tastes just as good as the local Chinese takeout. It’s really important to have a very hot wok or pan when you start and to work quickly, making sure that the ingredients get a quick scalding that adds a bit of...

Cajun lemon chicken This is a great chicken dish that is great hot and cold the next day. The cajun spices with the lemon and crunchy quick stir fried veg are a treat. For a salad version of the recipe all you have to do is drape your cooled cajun chicken and peppers over your favourite leaves, give it another squeeze of fresh lemon and perhaps add a some freshly cut melon. This one is very easy and very versatile, fresh...

Kung Po Chicken

Kung Po Chicken...

Kung Po Chicken If you like spicy Chinese food, then Kung Po chicken is for you. This Chinese recipe is best made for a group of special people you have coming over because it is not cheap to make and uses some exotic items that you will have to go to a Chinese supermarket to get. It is so good and just not worth trying to substitute things for. It was a favorite dish of Last emperor in The 20th century and Chefs were...
Garlic prawns

Garlic prawns...

Steamed garlic prawns This is the easiest garlic prawn recipe you will come across and is extremely tasty. I love to serve it with a simple vegetable stir fry that has a large handful of bean sprouts tossed into it instead of carrots. They are steamed and by far the best steamers are the bamboo steamers that you get at any oriental supermarket. (for 2 on their own or 4 with another Chinese dish, try the pineapple duck) What...
Sweet and sour pork

Sweet and sour pork...

Sweet and sour pork Sweet and sour pork with this homemade sweet and sour sauce is just fantastic. I often have sweet and sour pork at Chinese restaurans but prefer strips of meat as opposed to cubes which seem to be most popular in Chinese retstaurants. The meat is thinner, ¬†more tender and is cooked in hot oil which makes the batter crisp. (2 servings on it’s own or 4 servings with another dish like the lemon...
Beef with asparagus and oyster sauce

Beef with asparagus and oyster sauce...

Beef with asparagus and oyster sauce Beef in oyster sauce is most often served on its own but adding asparagus or mange tout for that matter, makes it so much nicer. It’s really quick and best to use a nice piece of fillet. The asparagus still have a crunch to them which really appeals to me.. at least I feel I’m getting my vegetables and still enjoying the richness of the oyster sauce. (serves 2 with rice) What...

Prawn ball snacks...

prawn snacks These little Thai beauties are so indulgent and so delicious that this prawn ball recipe meant for 4 or 5 people can easily be consumed by 1 or 2 during a great DVD in the cold weather. You really need a food processor for the recipe but if you don’t have one and are willing to chop up prawns into tiny little pieces you will be just fine…. It will be worth it I tell you. It’s easy and quick...
Chinese chicken and corn soup

Chinese chicken and corn soup...

Chicken corn soup If you have never had chicken and corn soup at a Chinese restaurant or takeout you are really missing something. What I really like about it is hat I can add toppings to it like crisp bacon pieces and chopped spring onions to make it a complete meal. It is great as a starter before one of the quick and easy Chinese recipes. The part I found took a little practice was getting the consistency of the egg...
Curried beef Chinese style

Curried beef Chinese style...

Beef curries are really fantastic but take a fair amount of time and when I read this curried beef in a Chinese recipe book, I just had to try it. The very essence of Chines cooking is good fresh ingredients that are cooked swiftly on a high heat in just minutes so the thought of a great curry in just a few minutes really appealed to me. The sate sauce makes a huge difference to the flavour so if you don’t have...
