My blog is evolving into a food diary! Here's what we ate for dinner tonight.
To balance out the meat dishes, I did a really plain stir-fry using butter lettuce, minced garlic and sunflower oil. It's light and crispy.
I was surprised to see these huge squids at the fishmonger on Wednesday. They were at least a foot long! Remember I recently dreamed about giant squids at the fishmonger? It's funny how my dream became a reality. Well, I didn't want a huge squid, so I picked the smallest one which was still almost a foot long. I decided to make calamari rings for dinner. Preparation is very simple. Just season with salt, curry powder and some pepper. Toss the cut pieces into a small bag of flour and shake until nicely coated. Panfry quickly and serve.
I panfried a piece of salmon steak and garnished with teriyaki sauce. Salmon steaks are so tricky to fry. By the time the skin and outer layer gets burnt, the centre still displays a shade of blushing pink. So frustrating! I ended up breaking it into pieces to ensure that every part is cooked through.
Here is the comfort food - braised pork ribs. In my enthusiasm to comfort CH, I cooked too much and now we have some leftovers in the fridge.
