wife made truffle oil capellini this evening on 18.1.2017. ^^
both wife & i made mentaiko & truffle oil pasta quite a few times.
this lagi the best!
the best truffle capellinin we had was at portico prime recently on 2.1.2017.
wife added the usual truffle oil, little seasalt, a bit extra virgin olive oil, little mentaiko & tossed.
the winning difference is the salmon.
this a japanese mentaiko marinated salmon from isetan at shaw house.
salmon was top draw, and the combination of taste was just wonderful! ^^
topped off with some cut nori – seaweed…
really nice, tasty salmon.
& the slight salty salmon enhanced & brought out the flavours of the truffle oil pasta.
she tried some cheap black lumpfish caviar.
nice too but not comparable with the salmon take.
& also tried with some mixed japanese dried flakes….ok…nicer with jap sushi rice.
i am in love with wife’s quinoa salad.
always looked wonderful, and taste perfect!
i tried ika sugatayaki, which just means whole squid grilled.
anyhow, taste was better than the last but squid was also slight overcooked.
as wife said, need to grill for shorter time about 12mins then torched it.
this was a really fun 3pax dinner with wife & daughter at home.
