Singapore Series- Chilli crab

There’s not much I can tell you about this post. I’m not sure where we were (I think the restaurant is called Ponggol Seafood) and I definitely didn’t order. All I can say was that everything was delicious and fresh (especially the seafood) but the highlights for me were definitely the chilli crab with mantou (fried bread that was crispy and sweet on the outside and baby soft on the inside) and the buttered lobster *drool*.

Some close ups.

Clockwise- amazing meat from the buttered lobster, tiny squid, plate of buttered lobster and the fresh prawn just caught from a prawn pool just outside the restaurant.

You must definitely try the seafood while you’re in Singapore!

Green and Gold

What is more patriotic than green and gold and especially with the addition of BACON! I’ve been having cravings for zucchini slice and I thought I’d make it for a BBQ I was going to. A few years ago, I grew so many zucchinis I didn’t know what to do with them. I fried them, grated them into patties, made zucchini balls and I also made a lot of zucchini slice. It’s a very popular recipe and everyone I know uses the same one. Here it is for you guys:

Ingredients
  • 5 eggs
  • 150g (1 cup) self-raising flour, sifted
  • 375g zucchini, grated
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 200g rind less bacon, chopped
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 60ml (1/4 cup) vegetable oil
Method
Step 1
Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease and line a 30 x 20cm lamington pan.
Step 2
Beat the eggs in a large bowl until combined. Add the flour and beat until smooth, then add zucchini, onion, bacon, cheese and oil and stir to combine. Pour into the prepared pan and bake in oven for 30 minutes or until cooked through.
