Prawn and Avocado Salad

Prawn and avocado go very well together. I also like to add hard boiled eggs, roasted pine nuts and thousand island dressing. Serve with crackers.

Nb: If you don't have thousand island mix a little bit of chilly sauce to mayonnaise and mix well.

Dried Curry Prawn

Tony's dried curry prawn

I have always loved the dried curry prawns sold by Nasi Kandar restaurants. They use "Udang Galah" (Scampis) and sell each prawn for up to 10 ringgit depending on the size. I use Tiger Prawn or King Prawns and choose the biggest ones. I do not have the Nasi Kandar recipe so I experimented and came up with my own.

Victims whom I have fed this dish to have survived and some even complimented me on how good it is.

Ipoh Hor Fun

The "prawn oil" that gives the final product that reddish film.

Ipoh Hor Fun

My sister emailed me this recipe and suggested I gave it a try and then to put it on this blog. This is one of the simplest recipe I have tried. I boiled 4 chicken frames with some ikan bilis. Then I put in some whole prawn with shell. When the prawn is cooked I fish them out and peel off the heads and shell. I fry the prawn shell and heads to get the reddish oil which I add to the stock before serving. To the stock I also add rock sugar and salt to taste.

Surprisingly, one of the best Ipoh Hor Fun I have eaten is at the Changi Garden Market in Singapore.
