Home Valentine 2pax Dinner for Wife on 14Feb2021

made 2pax valentine day dinner on 14.2.2021.^^

this a yearly tradition…2020 edition here. 🙂

  1. crabmeat chawanmushi

  3. crabmeat donburi with prawns, scallops, miso salmon belly

this year not as good as 2020.

my chawanmushi texture not right…my recipe was doing for 5-6pax…the adjustments not enough for 2pax..so a bit viscous…

flamed jumbo prawn could be better.

donburi though was good, flavourful and the miso salmon belly seared scallops were great! 🙂
