12 things: new recipes

Tried a batch of (mostly) Asian recipes in the last few weeks.

I need my Asian fix at least once a week and I was tired of making the usual stirfries. So I found recipes from the Asian "masters" if you like (Neil Perry and Kylie Kwong) and cooked up some Asian delights. This white cut chicken is the best tasting chicken I have ever made - so ridiculously tender and all it required was 14 minutes of poaching followed by 3 hours steeping in stock.
Week 33 - White cooked chicken with spring onion and ginger sauce
Week 34 - Spicy Sichuan Noodles
Week 35 - Chicken, rice and broad bean soup
Week 36 - Soft boiled crunchy eggs with spicy salt
Week 37 - Crisp lemon fish
Week 38 - Salt and pepper chicken wing
The other recipes also fared well. The spicy sichuan noodles were the Asian equivalent of a spaghetti bolognaise - oh how I enjoyed slurping that down! The soft boiled eggs were twice cooked; first boiled then deep fried,  how unexpected was the taste; crunchy on the outside but goooey on the inside (yum!). The soup and fish were so called 'healthy' dishes so to compensate, I served up some naughty deep fried goodness in the form of S&P chicken wings.

What have you been cooking up lately?

I love Hainanese chicken! Don't think I've ever had a soft-boiled crunchy egg. And I always enjoy really crispy wings:) The Food Network channel here used to show Kylie Kwong but not anymore and I do like her show. O well...

Trishie you could probably start a resto with these beautifully cooked dishes. Stu is so lucky! I really need to learn how to make the spicy sichuan noodles. We live so close to Chinatown that I usually just buy them whenever a craving hits :)

Spicy sichuan noodles - my grandma makes that the BEST. Actually I think it's best but I'm not sure because the hot sauce she adds burns away all of my taste buds

OMG--those soft-boiled crunchy eggs with spicy salt look freaking AMAZING! I LOOOOOVE a good soft-boiled egg, but to add the crunchy texture and the spicy with the salty, that sounds FAB. I MUST try this out! Googling the recipe now! :P

Trishie,

Did you make all these yourself ?? Your plating is wonderful - I believe that design and aesthetics is half of what makes a meal delicious. I've been trying to find a recipe for that "split fish" dish - could you send me yours? This is really lovely.
