Lobster Salad

Lobster Salad

My wife had a bit of a lobster craving over the weekend after my suggestion to pay Billings Gate a visit. Unfortunately, Billings Gate we did not go, but lobster we still got. So, instead of the usual boiled lobster with dipping sauce, I decided to make a nice little Lobster Salad. A little sweet and spicy with a hint of fresh lemon makes this dish a great starter.

The thing about Malaysia being a colonial country is the fact that the British has left quite a number of legacy now engrained into to Malaysian way of life.

Over the years, there has been … Read entire article »

Steamed Eggs

Steamed Eggs, simple recipes and dead easy to prepare. However, to make the perfect one requires a lot of practice. The Japanese has a similar dish called chawanmushi.
