Grilled Teriyaki Salmon


This is another wonderful no brainer dish. Just season some salmon slices (not more than 1cm thick) with hua diao wine, teriyaki sauce and black pepper. Marinate for for one hour, pop into an oven and grill for 25mins while adding more teriyaki sauce. Squeeze some lime juice and you’ve got a wonderfully yummy dish that the kids will love. I wish I can attach an “aroma file” to this posting.

10-minute Chye Sim

Chye sim is a very common vegetable that not many people like. It’s quite often used in char kway teow, but so little of it is used that you may not even know it’a there. The humble chye sim actually goes quite well with prawns and here’s how you can make a nice chye sim dish in just 10 minutes.


First, brown some garlic in oil and stir fry the prawns and the thicker chye sim stems. Once the prawns are partially cooked, add some oyster sauce. Once that is done, put in the leafy portions.


Toss them around until the stalks turn limp. Add some hua diao wine, a teaspoon of sugar and you’re done.


All this can be done in 10 minutes or less and your kids will be surprised that chye sim can be so flavourful.

Easy Omelette

A very simple but tasty dish here that takes literally minutes to prepare. All you need are eggs, mussels and chives.


I’ve placed everything together for demonstration purposes. When preparing this yourself, it would be much easier if you beat the eggs before you add in the chives and mussels.


Self-explanatory. Anyone who can fry an egg can do this. Don’t be afraid to turn up the heat. It’s probably not possible to flip over without tearing the egg. Just brown on both sides and drizzle some light soya sauce just before you plate it.


Tastes great with Thai sweet chilli sauce. This tastes more sweet and sour than spicy.


This is what the omelette looks like. It tastes great and the kids will love it.
