Hong Kong-ers just love Japanese food… Sushi joints, japanese styled buffets, Yakitori shops… You’re bound to see a queue in front of these restaurants!
And so, I decided that the main would be TEMPURA PRAWN!
Of course, some
“Green”, or rather, “White” is needed for a balanced diet. Tofu with sesame dressing!
And here’s some protein! Grilled mackerel!
So anyway, back to the Tempura Prawns..
So, how did I make the above? For the tempura prawns, first step…
Covering the prawns with batter. Which I self-made with Tapioca Starch and Flour. Of course, if you’re lazy, or want better results, you can always go the easy route and just buy some “Tempura batter”!
A second easy step… Deep-frying!
As for the grilled mackerel, this was just simply done by pan-frying it… The tofu is really the easiest. Just buy some ready-to-eat tofu, dress with some “roasted seasame sauce” which you can find in all supermarkets, and that’s it!
Oh, but cooking must include some failures. Here’s one.. A way over-steamed Chawanmushi!
So that’s it! Instead of queing at all those japanese restaurants for hours on end, why not try a Japanese dinner at home?
