Grilled by Mama with salt, pepper and olive oil.
Fried by Yours Truly. Batter prepared with cornflour, sea salt and pepper.
First time working with Squid; first time making my own batter. I was surprised at how tasty this came out! Totally yums, even if I do say so myself. Think the supreme freshness of the squid really made a difference. If only I didn't have to dodge as much spattering oil when cooking it. Haha. But after eating... I think worth it la. Damn tasty. =p
Having said that, I think should start ang moh deep frying more. I always deep fry my White Pomfret but that's Chinese-styled deep frying without batter; only seasoning. Now, I feel like exploring other deep fried dishes. Like maybe prawn fritters or fish in batter like those you eat when you order Fish & Chips.
Instant fries from the freezer, fried by Yours Truly.
Pre-packed garden greens that Mama bought.
My own sauce for dip!
I wanted to make Tartare Sauce but didn't have the ingredients on hand so I went with a sendiri-mari, pakai-hentam-aje sauce with whatever was at home. Mixed Mayonnaise, Tomato Sauce and Lingham Chilli Sauce together and, truth be told, I think it turned out A-W-E-S-O-M-E. I loved it! It went very well with my Calamari. Made good salad sauce, too. Haha. =p
And the preparation plus cooking time
for all that delicious goodness you see up there?
A mere half hour. Wheeee! =D
