    It was one of the best prawn recipes I have tried for a very long time. The sauce was a little dry, so next time maybe will add a little more milk. Salted duck eggs are a little hard to find here in Darwin, you have to get to the Sunday morning market very early before they sell out. Do you know how to prepare salted duck eggs?

    Thanks, Clunk. During my kampong days, my late mother used to prepare salted duck egg herself. She will boil one packet of salt with abt 1-2 litre of water (depending on how many egg u are preparing) then soaked the duck eggs in the salted water in a glass container when it turn cool, and seal it for at least 1 month. I still remember she will seal the container with the day calendar (those we tear daily) to remind her of the date. That is the best salted egg I ever tasted in my life.

    Seafood fried Tong Zai Noodles (筒仔面)



    Special Chiili sauce (My secret recipe )

    #8a


    Ingredients:
    •Dried Tong zai noodle boiled and rinsed with cool water and drained
    •100g roasted pork
    •1 squid
    •8 fish balls
    •1 packet fresh mushrooms
    •3 eggs
    •100g fresh green vegetables
    •Chopped garlic
    •Pepper
    •Fish sauce
    •Oyster sauce
    •½ tbsp Oil

    Chili : (mix)
    •4 chilli padi, cut into small pieces
    •3 calamansi, squeeze for juice, and small slices of the skin
    •1 tsp chilli sauce
    •1 tsp ketchup
    •1 tsp soy sauce
    •1 tsp chichalok

    Method:
    1.Add oil in wok with high heat
    2.Add chopped garlic, stirfry for 1 min
    3.Add roasted pork, stirfry for 2 mins
    4.Add squid, fish balls, stirfry for another 2 mins
    5.Push the ingredients away from oil in wok. Add eggs (Usually I don’t stir the egg in a bowl first, I will stir them in the wok, I found this make the eggs taste better, personal preference)
    6.Add mushrooms and vegetables and add noodles on top of the vegetables, add fish sauce, oyter sauce and pepper, cover and simmer for 2 mins (this action ‘excretes’ water from the vegetables and mushrooms so that it will absord by the noodles. I usually have more veges than noodles or mee hun, so that the noodles wouldn’t feel so dry)
    7.Stir and mix well and simmer for another 2 mins.
    8.U may repeat step 7 depending ur liking.

    Enjoy ur weekend!
