Tuna Crackers

Picture 1 of 4

Tuna cracker is  one of the most popular appetizers/snacks for parties or events. It is always a good starter while we are hanging around waiting for the opening.  Serving with appetite wine is a good combination too.  I love to serve tuna crackers because they are easy and fun to be made – and yet, delicious. Also, the tuna cracker itself is like an art of a chef’s presentation.

Salt-Pepper Chicken (鹽酥雞)

Picture 1 of 4

One of my favorite snacks is Salt-pepper chicken. It is a Taiwanese style popcorn chicken. We call it Yan Su Ji (鹽酥雞) in Chinese.  Salt-pepper chicken is one of the popular snacks that can be easily found in most Taiwanese restaurant(s) or boba milk tea stations.  Thus it is always my first choice of snack whenever I hangout with friends at some local Taiwanese restaurants here in LA.

I like this Taiwanese style popcorn chicken because of the salty and peppery favor & the crispiness of it,  as well as the tenderness of the chicken meat with enough marinated juices preserved.

Sweet Vinegar Pork Feet (豬腳醋)

Picture 1 of 3

A friend of mine just gave birth two weeks ago and this reminds me the sweet vinegar pork feet that cooked by my mum occasionally. I could still remember how much I love it by eating bowl and bowl of rice with the sauce.

This traditional Cantonese dish is served to women who are in first month of confinement after childbirth and it is believed to supply extra nutrition. Of course, this dish is also for those who love the sweet and sour vinegar taste like me. So I decided to make this dish for the first time.

Curry Chicken (咖哩鸡)

Picture 1 of 3

Curry is a famous daily food in Asia. Especially curry chicken is  top ranked because chicken can be served to all religions as some religions have restrictions on food. You can see curry chicken dishes everywhere in food stands, hawker stalls or restaurants. Common enough but very delicious.

When I was still a 3rd grader, my family loves to picnic at the beach. I remembered my mom always prepare curry chicken to bring along for picnic. Curry gave me full favor of spices, as well as my childhood family memories.   The curry chicken sauce is a good to serve with a variety of food, with rice,  bread, noodle or even Chinese pan cake.
