Stuffed bell pepper with tuna mix

October 26, 2008

You can ring my beeeelllll..ring my bell.pepper..hehehe…yes something new this time..its bell pepper. Saw this recipe on one of my “party and appetizer” cook book. And as always, i did something different from the original recipe. With the ingredients that i have (left of over from previous cookings..hehe). Well, i roast the bell pepper that i bought this morning at Tmn Tun (wa..not cheap eh, different color different price ba..ish) anyway, its 3 for $4.50. Depends of its size as well..hmm.. So i bought green, yellow and red.) Until they’re hangus (burned, skin turned black) then let it rest and covered (so that when it cools down, its easier to peel off the skin) As you can see, i only use quarter of each of the pepper (i wanna try out first, not sure whether its nice or not..i mean..presentation wise..hehe)..

Tuna filling..well this is easy. I just buy one of those canned tuna flakes in water and mix it with mayonnaise, finely chopped onions and garlic, water chestnut and some wasabi paste.Simple kan?..hahaha..Here comes the difficult part, spreading the tuna filling and folding it. To actually fold nicely and to be able to hold its form is something that i did a few times today. The first time i did it…hmm..doesn’t really look presentable ba, i mean.it look kinda chunky. Then i tried again, to cut it and trim the sides and to make it thinner. Yup, boleh sudah..so the trick here is to thinly cut it pepper and never over spread the fillings. ­čÖé Try it yourself. You might not like it..hehe..cause its so time consuming ba. This will definately cost a lot if i were to include this in my catering menu..hehe..sorry ar. ­čÖé┬áSince i’m not working today, so i guess i just give it a try lo. But, one thing for sure, the next time if i were to do this again, i’ll get myself bigger bell peppers :p easier ba to fold. Don’t you think so? Let me know if you really did this appetizer yeah? Enjoy!

Prawn skewers with trio mayonnaise

October 16, 2008

Right, as promise on my prev, prev and prev blog (if u got baca properly..hehe) that i’m supposed to make prawn lollipop kan..hmm…some how tak jadi la.haha..well as you can see, its not that lolli after all..hehe..i don’t have that cornstarch to bind them (the prawn mix) together ba..ish..so i use normal flour saja..anyway..jadi jugak la, i mean the taste wise. Hemm..So, the ingredients are, prawn, water chestnut, onion, spring onion, rosemary and 1 whole egg. To marinade, i add a little sesame oil and oyster sauce lo, thats all. ­čÖé

First, with the prawns kan, which i bought today (after my rpm @ uptown),i think was the cheapest that icould find,in fact, thats my usual place where i get my prawns (though the lady boss never┬árecognized me..heh) its about $9/500g of course got more bigger and expensive one la..but┬áobviously not┬ánecessary┬ásince i’m going cincang (minced in malay)it anyway..keke..so yeah, so i peel and deveined the prawns one by one. Fyi, i just use half of what i’ve bought, saving it for another starter (coming soon..this time, its going to be Prawn with thai mango salad..hah!.) ┬á

 

 

Done with the prawns, then i add the remaining ingredients in lo (water chestnut, onion-diced, spring onion-finely chopped and rosemary -snip snip heheh). Then i move on to the sauces, which is the mayonnaise mix in 3 different ways (sweet-orange, sour-lime and spicy-wasabi). This is very easy, simply zest the lime┬áand orange with their juices (make sure that the juice is less than the amount of mayonnaise, otherwise it will change the consistency of the sauce) and for the wasabi, just add in the japanese horseradish lo. ­čÖé

For presentation, i just add some black sesame which i bought today also at cold storage (and its organic punya ba, ish you think its cheap ar..hmm..i also forgot how much sudah). As you can see, i used bamboo skewer. You can switch that with skewers made from sugar cane or even use rosemary’s stem. Hmm..will definately try again to make into a ball shape..sigh..
