5pax Dinner for KH & LL, our long-time Friends on 20Dec2017

5pax dinner dishes

we have a friend couple KH & LL who helped us a lot when we were younger, long time friend since 1990.

recently we connected up again, and they came by for a quiet dinner, just 4 of us & my son joined in dinner so 5pax.

i made the simple & nice dishes – claypot rice, tofu prawns, steamed minced pork, wine chicken & HK steamed red garoupa & a fried vegetable.

claypot chicken rice

claypot chicken rice was the usual very flavourful, well smoked, very tender chicken, flavourful pork & liver sausages from hong kong…a very delicious claypot rice dish.

my friends really enjoyed this claypot rice.

i made my usual steamed minced pork with light soy sauce.

this evening though, my light soy sauce was not the best grade. it was darker, and flavour made a difference.

anyway still a smooth, very tasty dish. just that a top grade light soy sauce would have made quite a big difference in flavour.

my tofu prawns had very tasty stock, nicely infused tofu & succulent prawns.

i stirred in the egg a bit early. so the look was less attractive w/o the drawn out egg after reheating when friends arrived for dinner. have to do this when just about to serve the dish…

otherwise, it was still a very tasty dish.

i made the usual wine chicken – recipe here – which everyone liked.

chicken very tender & tasty & stock was marvellous.

i also had a hk steamed red garoupa. didn’t take phot as it was served later during the dinner.

had really great evening with our friends, sharing & memories. will do this again soon. ^^
