Prawn and chicken vermicelli salad


I made this seafood rice vermicelli salad and it's not just an appetiser or starter  for me.   It doubled up as another one-dish meal for my dinner and  although  it's light, it can be filling too ..... and what's more, it's really delicious!










This is indeed very scrumptuous and the plus point is there's isn't much oil in it.  Just what I like.  What about you? 

Ingredients
  • 100 gm rice vermicelli, soaked
  • 1 chicken leg, skin removed and deboned
  • 250 gm prawns
  • 1 small green capsicum, sliced thinly
  • 1 cucumber, seeded, trimmed
  • 1 medium size onion, sliced thinly
  • 1 bird eye chilli
  • 2  tsp finely shredded turmeric leaves
  • Chopped garlic and oil
  • Salt
Dressing    (Mix together)
  • 2 Tbsp fish sauce
  • 3 Tbsp limau kasturi/calamansi juice
  • 1 Tbsp warm water
  • 5 tsp brown sugar
Preparation
  1. In a pot of boiling water add in some salt, poach the chicken till cooked through, drain and shred the meat.  Set aside.
  2. Add in the prawns whole and once the shells turn red, dish out, remove the shells, devein and slice them into halves.
  3. Cook the rice vermicelli in some boiling water, drain and cut into random lengths.
  4. Place the vermicelli, prawns and shredded chicken in a large serving bowl.
  5. Mix in the dressing, onion, capsicum, chilli and turmeric leaves.  Toss gently to combine.  Top up with 4 tsp of chopped garlic and oil.
  6. Serve immediately.

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake ~ 2013

Traditional Mixed Nuts Mooncake was my dad's perennial favourite.  At that time I couldn't understand why this festive traditional mooncake was most enjoyed by the older folks.  But nowadays, I too have slowly acquired the taste for this sweet, salty and nutty variety.  These cakes are best cut in  small wedges, savoured by small delicate bites and not by the mouthfuls, and they are best enjoyed with a pot of hot Chinese tea.

Ondeh Ondeh Pandan Cupcakes ~ 香兰小蛋糕

Ondeh Ondeh are green coloured and pandan flavoured glutinous rice balls with gula melaka or palm sugar filling, coated with freshly grated coconut.  We call it 'Kuih'.  Ondeh Ondeh cake is entirely different from this 'Kuih'.
I don't know how the name 'Ondeh Ondeh cake' came about but I guess it's because of the colour and the ingredients which are somewhat similar to that of the 'kuih'.
This pandan flavoured Ondeh Ondeh cupcake is moist, soft and slightly spongy and the gula melaka filling blends awfully well with the pandan and 'santan'/coconut milk.  A wonderful tea-time snack or a delectable dessert, any time!
