Home cook dinner

It has been quite a while since I post recipes. Recently we have been eating out a lot, going away on weekends so yesterday we make it a point to have dinner at home. Below was what we had yesterday:

Clock wise from the top, prawns in oyster sauce, lettuce with garlic, french beans with eggs and ikan kembung in "tau cheong" sauce.

Here is the recipe:

Prawns in oyster sauce (Hubby helped to stir while I supervised and prepard the sauce)

1) Prawns - to your liking, I bought medium size (around 14 of them)
2) Chopped shallots, ginger, garlic, red chilies (I skip this because of the kids), spring onion
3) Sauce - 2 tablespoon of oyster sauce, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of corn flour, dash of soya sauce, 3 tablespoons of water.

a) 3 tablespoons of oil
b) Grilled the prawns, remove prawns from wok
c) With the remaining oil, stir fry chopped items(2) until fragrant
d) Mixed the prawns and stir fry for another minute
e) Pour in sauce and saute for another minute, dish out

Lettuce with garlic:
This is pretty simple, heat the wok, put in 2 tablespoon of oil, put in chopped garlic, stir fry, put in lettuce and 1/2 teaspoon of salt, stir fry for a minute and dish out.

French beans with eggs:
a) French beans, chopped
b) 4 eggs, beaten, dash of soya sauce and 1 teaspoon of sugar

Heat the wok, put in 2 tablespoon of oil, stir fry french beans and put in the beaten eggs, tossed them like you are frying eggs until both sides is golden brown.

Ikan kembung (any fish) in "tau cheong" sauce
a) 4 ikan kembung
b) 2 onions, sliced
c) Some ginger, sliced
d) 1 tablespoon of "tau cheong"
e) Sauce: 2 teaspoons of sugar, 1 teaspoon of corn flour, dash of soya sauce, 2 tablespoons of water

Heat the work, put in 2 tablespoon of oil, stir fry (b&c) until fragrant, put in (d), stir fry until fragrant, put in a small bowl of water, put in (a), cover the wok. Flip the fish after 2 minutes, cover the wok for another 2 minutes, pour in sauce and stir, do your tasting here, if it's too salty, put in dash of sugar ("tau cheong" can be quite salty"), dish out.

Your dinner is ready and remember to cook your rice har.... got a few incidents I cooked all the dishes but forgotten about the rice.. he he he..
