Quick and light fridge clean-out Fennel Salad

Flaked Seabass, Fennel & Confit Tomatoes Salad

Would you eat something you have not tried before? Or do you prefer sticking to things you are familiar with?

I’m always looking for new ingredients to try, crazy me. I get uber excited when I see something new. Which can (and already did) get out of control. My kitchen and fridge are filled with STUFF begging for me to use them. A bad habit that I’m slowly getting rid of and learning a new habit to only stock up the fresh produce when the fridge is empty. It has been working quite well and it’s quite surprising that the fridge clean-out recipes turned out better than expected. Continue Reading →

Baked Eggs in Pomodoro Sauce and a TV appearance

February 28, 2014 by Shannon Lim | 12 Comments

Baked Eggs in Pomodoro SauceI’d bookmarked this Baked Eggs in Pomodoro Sauce recipe from Quay Po Cooks sometime ago. QPC had been so fortunate to watch Chef Fabio Viviani (Top Chef Season 5) demonstrate this simple and delicious recipe at his restaurant. I can imagine Chef Fabio’s suave personality charming all the female audience at the demo. Continue Reading →

Zucchini Noodles (Zoodles!) with Sundried Tomato Pesto

Zucchini Noodles with Sundried Tomato Pesto

I know there’s a lot of hype about going raw, paleo or whole30. Let’s not start with the labeling. As long as it is whole food & real food, you can’t go wrong there. As I’m wheat intolerant, grating zucchini into noodles (so it’s zoodles?) is a great noodle substitute for me. Yes it’s zucchini noodles, it can be eaten raw or if you don’t like the raw veggie taste, blanch it with hot water. Oh but that’s extra work.. so why don’t you try eating zucchini raw for a change?  Continue Reading →

Kafta Stew (Middle Eastern Meatball Stew)

Lebanese Kafta StewIt has been raining non-stop 2 weeks ago. the monsoon season has started. I just love rainy days, watching the rain drops on the window or hearing the rain drops on the roof. so soothing and comforting.. just like stews.

To me, there’s something comforting about stews even on hot days. I guess being brought up in a tropical country, we are used to having hot soups, porridge and stews anytime of the year. Continue Reading →

Chicken Mandy, Gulf style recipe

Every time I had an outing with my Arab friends, no matter which part of KL we are, we will end up having our meals at Half Moon restaurant at Serdang, that serves amazing Yemeni dishes.They just refuse to go to other Middle Eastern restaurant. In their opinion, Half Moon serves the best Middle Eastern food in town. Period. Yes, I have to agree. Best and cheap. But can’t say much their customer service though. And we almost order the same rice dishes – Mandy, Haneth or Kabsa and their amazing must have flat bread. I will always steal a bite or two of the bread. If I’m not wheat intolerant, I could have easily finish the massive flatbread myself. Continue Reading →

Som Tam (Thai Green Papaya Salad)

Som Tam (Thai Green Papaya Salad)

Grandpa loves to give away his papayas (pardon the pun) everything I visit. and I’ve made many visit since last year, hence papaya overload. He has 3 papaya trees in his backyard which he is extremely proud of. I do not understand why he loves planting just papaya and sugar apple trees in his huge backyard, I love other fruits too like mango, rambutan and passion fruits. Maybe I’ll sneak in a mango tree next time I’m back.

Last weekend, I took back an unripe (green) papaya to make Som Tam (Thai Green Papaya Salad). Continue Reading →

A few years later, here I am in the presence of one of Fifteen’s brightest protegé – Aaron Craze, thanks to Asian Food Channel’s Culinary Masterpieces with Aaron Craze: Rude Boy Cooks‘ Tour.

Nasi Daging Kedah & Air Asam Tomato

With Malaysian Food Fest blog event, I’m really enjoying the new knowledge about the cuisine from each different Malaysian state. I realised I didn’t know anything about the food from Kedah & Perlis – the 2 north western states on Peninsular Malaysia. Even though Kedah is neighbouring state to my hometown Penang, I hardly travel to Kedah except going to Langkawi Island. I don’t think I’m very good neighbour, huh? Continue Reading →

Happy Deepavali to all Hindu friends.

I am thankful to have the very talented Sri from Love2Cook Malaysia to share with us a delicious Diwali recipe. When I stumbled upon Love2Cook Malaysia earlier this year, I couldn’t stop browsing through the gorgeous mouthwatering Malaysian food and bakes. Despite her busy schedule in preparing for Deepavali, the ever so lovely (& huge chicken lover) Sri has so kindly cooked up a scrumptious chicken dish: Chicken Kurma. Do head over to Love2Cook Malaysia to show Sri some love for this Deepavali festival.

I’d better not take up much space, let’s have Sri’s gorgeous food take over from here.
