Pan-Fried Radish Cake



This Pan-Fried Radish Cake or also known as Lo Bak Gao is the popular dish that you can get at most Dim Sum restaurants. For this recipe, I have added some dried shrimps and scallions for flavoring. As for the batter, I used the combination of rice flour, corn starch and potato powder. The latter will give a firmer texture. If you can't find any potato powder, then replace it with wheat starch.

Acar Buah Jeruk & Kering (Spicy Pickled Dried & Preserved Fruits)



These Acar Buah or Pickled Dried and Preserved Fruits are spicy, sweet, and sour. It's often served as accompaniment with other dishes. The flavor of these Acar Buah improves with time, so it's best to serve it a couple of hours later and can be stored in the refrigerator for about a month.

Grilled Fish Stuffed With Sambal



Grilling whole fish and stuffed with sambal paste is very popular in Malaysia. They are great with some steamed rice and perhaps a couple of stir-fried vegetables to complete the meal. For this recipe, I used Tai Snapper; some other good options are Hardtail or mackerel fish. The fish can be pan-fried directly in some oil, or in the banana leaves. I chose the latter because I like the lovely aroma from the banana leaf.

Mango Salsa



The weather was sunny in Vancouver the past few days, so, I managed to do some outdoor grilling. It was great! I made some mango salsa to go with my grilled prawns. The salsa is sweet and a little bit tangy. It complement very well with the lightly seasoned prawns. Do try my mango salsa recipe.
