Baked Salted Egg Prawns and Calamari

The salted egg craze has been around in this part of the world for a while now. The craze for this trendiest ingredient has gotten so out of hand that anything from croissants, french fries, potato chips to ice cream, everything can now be salted egg yolk-ified. 

I am more of a conservative person and still prefer my salted egg with seafood (think salted egg crab at KEK Tze Char and salted egg calamari at Diamond Kitchen) and I made mine on the Weber Barbecue.

Salted egg prawns and calamari on the grill achieves the same crispiness and the "airfryer"-healthiness. Who needs more oil when you can bake with the grill? Especially for all the ladies out there, try it!

Orh Yee (Hokkien Heritage Yam Cake Recipe)

Those who follow my blog long enough would know that I grew up at my grandma's place as my mum passed away when I was five. My cooking passion stems from the way my grandma would cook for the family.

My grandparents came from the Fujian province in China. On special occasions like Chinese New Year or birthdays, grandma would cook us Hokkien dishes like Kong Bak Bao (Braised pork bun), Mee Sua (Wheat flour noodle) and Prawn Rolls. One very unique heritage dish that she used to cook for us was fried Orh Yee (Steamed Yam Cake).
