originally i proposed to cook a mother’s day family dinner at home on 14.5.2017.
the 2 daughters now not available for dinner, so we decided to do homecooked family dinner another day.
he liked the claypot rice & wanted to take claypot rice again this evening..
So did wife! so i cooked a 3pax dinner instead.
though i did not garnish & take a great photo this evening, the claypot rice (above photo) was very good, as good as i did other times. ^^
i decided that though last minute, i should do something more than just claypot rice since it was mother’s day.
so i went to sheng shiong & got a 680g live lobster for S$41+.
i made lobster in superior broth 龙虾上汤焗 this evening. this the second time i made this dish & this time it was excellent.
but still very good c/w with many others la…
of course live lobster & done correctly & right texture not old or overcooked always very sweet, bouncy & tasty.
but also the superior broth 上汤 is the key!
i had chicken stock (chicken bones boiled with carrots), then added the lobster shells & reduced to very intense broth, very tasty & flavourful.
& my usual stir-fried vegetable dish.
this evening, i made romaine lettuce, my wife’s favourite!
like i told my son, best flavours dry water don’t add water (there’s water in the veg) just add some oyster sauce. of course one school said to sprinkle just a little water when 起锅, to create the wok hae…yet to try that though…
after dinner we had some cheese.
very nice cheese especially with the truffle honey dip. excellent!
son brought back a few type of chorizo from porto.
we started with the cheaper lot. but this lot really not too good. will open the better ones when when have more pax.
and the cheese & chorizo were perfect with the white port (which has the whiskey fermentation stopper added). this really excellent port!
we had that during our holiday in porto, and we all love it, so son brought back a bottle from porto for my wife.
a simple 3pax dinner put together for mother’s day, and a very good & enjoyable one!
