Recipe: Cantonese Lobster

Chinese Food Cantonese Lobster  Recipes Ingredients :

  • 1x 1kg cooked lobster, shell split, claws cracked and sac removed
  • 75ml peanut oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 71/2cm fresh root ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 125g lean pork, minced (ground)
  • 250ml Chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine or dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon monosodium glutamate (MSG), (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour (cornstarch), blended with 2 tablespoons water
  • 4 spring onion (scallions), chopped
  • 2 eggs

Chinese Food Recipes Instructions:

1. Chop the lobster into pieces and set aside.(You can, if you wish, remove the shell but it is traditional to cook this dish with the shell on).
2. Heat half the oil in a large, deep frying-pan. Add the garlic and stir-fry for 1 minute. Add the lobster pieces to the pan and stir-fry for 3 to 5 minutes, or until they are heated through. Transfer to a warmed serving dish and keep hot while you make the sauce.
3. Heat the remaining oil in the same frying-pan. Add the ginger and pork and fry until the pork loses all its pinkness. Pour over the stock and bring to the boil. Combine the wine or
sherry, soy sauce, monosodium glutamate (MSG) and sugar, then stir the mixture into the pan. Stir-fry for 1 minute. Stir in the cornflour (cornstarch) mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens and becomes translucent.
Stir in the spring onions (scallions) and cook for 1 minute, stirring.
4. Turn off the heat and beat the eggs a few times just to combine them. Gently pour over the mixture, stirring and lifting the sides of the mixture to allow the egg to run over and under.
When the egg mixture becomes creamy and slightly ‘set’, spoon the sauce over the lobster. Serve at once.

Recipe: Silver Dollar Pancakes

Makes about 18 3-inch pancakes
Printable Recipe

Simple and delicious.  Kids love them, both the young and the “old.”  But then who wouldn’t love a “Silver Dollar!”

200g of plain flour ( 2 cups)
2 TBS of coarse polenta, or yellow cornmeal
1 TBS baking powder
2 tsp of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
1/2 tsp salt
2 large free range eggs
500ml of buttermilk (2 cups)
5 TBS of sunflower oil
more oil for greasing the pan

Whisk the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, soda and salt together in a mixing bowl.  Beat the eggs until light and fluffy in another bowl.  Whisk in the buttermilk and the oil.  Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and add the liquid ingredients all at once.  Stir until just combined, without overmixing.  The batter will have small lumps.

Heat a griddle pan or heavy skillet over medium heat until a drop of water skips across the surface.  Lightly grease with some oil.  Using a ladle, spoon batter onto the griddle in scant 2 TBS measures, leaving a few inches between each pancake.  Cook until bubbles form on the surface and the edges are dry, with golden brown bottoms.  Flip over and cook for about 30 to 45 seconds longer until golden brown on the other side.  Keep warm in a low oven until ready to serve.  Repeat to use up all the batter.  Serve hot with butter and plenty of real Maple Syrup!

Top Lunch Ideas

Making a packed lunch for yourself or your children everyday can get really dull! To liven it up a bit, here are a few suggestions of foods to include which are tasty and nutritious and you just might not have thought of…

  1. Pack a mini-salad. If a salad alone is not enough to fill you up then compliment your sandwich with a tasty side dish. Go for simple cucumber and tomato or add some extras like avocado or peppers.
  2. Get your vegetable intake up. Veggies are a great way to fill up and give energy, and eaten raw they retain all their natural nutrients. Try grated carrot with raisins or beetroot simply on its own – have the Fairy Liquid on standby however as it stains like mad!
  3. Five a day. Make sure you include foods which contribute to your 5 a day count. Fresh squeezed juice, a piece of fruit or how about natural yogurt with berries added to it.
  4. Avoid the bread. If bread makes you feel bloated then switch to wraps or pittas instead to stave off hunger. Cold pasta or rice salad is another great alternative. Get a rice cooker if you don’t have one already to quickly make rise or set a timer to make it each morning. has rice maker reviews.
  5. Super soup. Home made soup packed with healthy ingredients is easy to transport in a flask and is great for dieters and the health conscious. Warm and filling, soup can match your mood from chicken broth to curried veg!
  6. Go for quick meals. If you work from home or can get to a proper kitchen then how about a jacket potato with a variety of toppings. Easy to pop in the oven and no time at all to plate up.
  7. Left over central. In cold weather a hot meal at lunchtime is very welcome so if you have access to a microwave then why not use up your dinner leftovers the following day. If the food goes bad composting is a good habit to get into. If you have a backyard it is as simple as buying a composter and throwing leftovers in there. has detailed composter reviews.
Cut Down on Treats

no treatsThere’s no need to diet – just cut down on treats healthy food and healthy recipes. Here food recipe is delicious, we hope you will enjoy this There’s no need to diet – just cut down on treats on food healthy recipe blog.

I don’t know about you, but I find it pretty much impossible to go on a diet. When you enjoy eating food and you’re a fussy eater, there’s nothing more difficult than trying to cut out all the things you love from your daily meals.

You don’t really need to diet to lose weight and stay healthy though – you can just limit the amount of sweet treats and unhealthy snacks in order to do that. You can just look at this site here and see how ridiculous some of the diet plans are.

Rather than starving yourself or embarking on the not-so-appetising cabbage soup diet, why not just reduce the number of chocolate bars you eat each week or just try to snack on crisps a bit less?

You might want to start taking your own lunch into work, made with homemade bread – then at least you’ll know what ingredients and how much salt goes into making it.

Sandwiches are a fantastic thing to have at lunchtimes, as they’re bound to fill you up properly and if you go for decent bread and healthy fillings, they’ll help you lose some weight in the long term too.

Just take a look online at some sandwich recipes to get some inspiration, then put together the healthiest bits and pieces you can and presto, you’ve got a healthy snack for lunch!

Another way to create healthy snacks is to dehydrate fruit and eat those for snacks. They don’t spoil and you still get lots of nutrients. The best way to efficiently dehydrate food is with a food dehydrator. Check this site’s page on food dehydrators here for a good list of options.

If you need a sweet treat to get you through the day, fruit is definitely the way forward. Just stock up on some apples and bananas, or whatever else takes your fancy, and munch away whenever the moment takes you!

Nuts are another fantastic thing to have to hand, so long as there’s very little salt on them – they’ll tide you over to your next meal without a doubt!

8 slices of bacon, smoked or unsmoked, with the rind removed

Toss together and then spread out, with the cut side of the tomatoes up. Season well and sprinkle with half of the thyme leaves. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until tender. Keep .

Heat the grill to high. Grill the bacon for 3 to 4 minutes, until crisp, turning halways through the grilling. Remove and then toast the bagels under the grill, until golden brown. Spread with half of the butter and keep warm.

Beat together the eggs and milk. Season well. Heat the remaining butter in a nonstick skillet over medium to low heat. Once it begins to foam, pour in the eggs and leave for 30 seconds. Use a wooden spoon to stir briefly, leave to cook again, repeat until the eggs are just set. Remove from the heat.

Recipe: Lemon and Sultana Cookies

Makes about 30
Printable Recipe

You can use dried cranberries or blueberries instead of the sultanas, or chopped walnuts or pecans. A lovely soft buttery cookie with a sweet/tart lemon glaze.

350g plain flour (3 1/2 cups)
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
140g of butter, cut into small bits (9 1/2 TBS)
175g caster sugar (3/4 cup)
85g sultanas (generous half cup)
100g of lemon curd (scant 1/2 cup)
2 free range eggs, beaten (medium)

For the icing:
100g sifted icing sugar (3/4 cup)
2 TBS fresh lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 200*C/400*F/ gas mark 6. Butter 3 baking sheets, or bake in 3 batches. Set aside.

Sift the flour, soda and baking powder into a bowl. Drop in the butter and rub into the flour mixture with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar and sultanas. Beat together the eggs and lemon curd. Stir into the dry mixture to make a soft dough. Drop by heaped TBS onto the baking sheets, leaving plenty of space in between for spreading. Using wet fingers tamp down gently on top of each biscuit to flatten it slightly.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until well risen and golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the baking sheet for a minute or so before removing to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.

Whisk the icing sugar and lemon juice together until smooth and then drizzle this over top of each cookie.
