3 sauteed garlic squid with egg yolk

the 3 dishes were not comparable with foc in the looks department of course.

still, though i used frozen prime ribs from sheng shiong, i think flavour & texture wise it almost approximates the kurobuta ribs at foc, so it was very good ribs.

this a new preparation i created, will post the recipe later.

i charred/browned the pork ribs before the fine braising in a 95degC oven for 5hrs.

so pork ribs were very tender, and i also created a very tasty marinade.

i tried to brown the ribs again after braising, so it blackened a bit from the marinade.

not decided yet whether this step is necessary. if i do it then i will wipe off the marinade first.

the sauteed garlic squid had too much sauce need a bit of adjustment. taste was quite good though nothing special.

i didn’t think foc squid dish was special in any case, but still a good dish to have for group dinners & will try to improve it.

paella was very tasty, rice texture was ok but maybe should make it a bit harder in the middle

i vary it a bit from my seafood risotto dish par excellence.

instead of frying the prawns & squid in butter, i just added to the rice before putting in a 210degC oven.

& i added some butter to the rice at the end of cooking & turning off the fire.

sotong was also tasty & just right.

the dish could not compared with the really excellent seafood risotto par excellence i made previously which almost approximate miky’s.
