Salmon with Brown Mushrooms

Salmon with Brown Mushrooms

I don't know what to call this dish.
It is not solely stir fried nor pan fried.  It is a bit of both.
Well, who cares...hahaha. As long as it is delicious.
It is indeed delicious, my husband said it three times that 
he prefer the salmon to be cooked this way instead of grilled.

Salmon 310 g (cut to chunk size)
Brown Mushrooms 6 pieces (Sliced)
Garlic 2 cloves (minced)
Cooking Oil - 1/3 cup
Some Butter

1) Heat up the Cooking Oil with Butter and then add minced 
    Garlic and stir for 1 minute.
2) Add Button Mushrooms and stir until slightly soften and 
    arrange the mushroom to cover the whole pot.

 3) Quickly add the Salmon.  
     Arrange nicely on top of the Button Mushrooms.
4) Once slightly pinkest, turn the Salmon to the other side and              Button Mushroom on top of the Salmon.  Don't freak out 
     if you couldn't turn all the Button Mushrooms to the other side.
5) Sprinkle with some Salt and Coarse Black Pepper and 
    dish out once cooked.

In fact, I kind of like this dish also and 
I hope you will like it.
Happy Cooking and Have  A Good Day.

say it.  Her results were superb and we are happy and
proud of her.  Wishing you all the best.

Some Butter for greasing

1) Beat or blend all the ingredients except butter until smooth.
2) Slightly grease the non stick pan with butter over medium fire.
3) Pour 1/2 cup of the batter to the pan and move the pan
in circular motion to coat the entire pan with batter.
4) Cook for 30 seconds or until the edges of the batter bubble
slightly and slide a spatula under the edge and flip to the 
other side to cook further 15 seconds.

Nutella Raisin Puff - Air Fryer

Nutella Raisin Puff - Air Fryer
Today whole day I am hibernating inside the house.
No joke, just lazy to go out.  Need some rest.
Been not resting well since back from Bangkok and
Ipoh trip.  Made this for breakfast for my daughter, 
her friend and myself.
So easy to make.
I would like to thank to my school mate Dorothy Lim
gifting to me this Nutella with my name on it.
My family and friends are fascinating with my name on it.

I am using my Air Fryer to make this.
If you don't have air fryer, you can use oven as an alternative.

 Some ready made Puff Pastry
Some Raisins
1 egg for egg wash (beat slightly)

Note: Thaw the puff pastry to room temperature
but not too soft, otherwise difficult to handle.

Method :-
1) Place 1 piece of the puff pastry on a working board.
2) Spread with Nutella and add few raisins.
3) Combine opposite both end of the puff pastry and
press slightly at the middle.
4) Spread with egg wash (on the top pastry only).
5) Air Fry at 200 Degree Celsius for 5 minutes or
Bake at 190 Degree Celsius for 8 minutes.
 * Remember to heat up the Air Fryer or Oven
before baking it.

The Nutella Raisin Puff was delicious as highlighted
by my daughter and her friend but the picture
of the Nutella Puff after being baked does not do it justice.

You can see there are two puff pastries.
On the foreground has raisins and the top does not have 
because my daughter does not like raisins.

Wishing all have a happy weekend.

Foil Pack Prawns with White Wine

Foil Pack Prawns with White Wine 
 Cooked this dish since we have white wine bought from our recent trip to Perth.

16 pieces of medium size prawns (cleaned, peeled and leave tail intact).
Some Spring Onion (cleaned and julienne).
1 cup of white wine.
4 slices of lemon (don't put so many because more lemon will make the dish bitter).
4 cloves of garlic (sliced).
Some chili flakes.

 Get ready all the ingredients.

Make 2 layer of foil.

Place all the prawns and top with lemon, garlic and sprinkle with
some pepper, salt and chilli flakes.
Pour 1 cup of white while.

Roll the 3 side edges to seal closed and place on a hot grill pan.
(Notel : Remember to have the hot grill pan ready)
Remember to use a knife to poke 4 small holes to let the steam out.
Grill for 10 minutes.

Yummy scrumptious delicious prawns.
Full of wonderful flavours.
