Salt & Pepper Oyster Mushroom (椒鹽豪菇)

Picture 1 of 6

A friend of mine who is a vegetarian asked me to prepare some vegetarian dishes sometime in our post. I remembered one time we went to this local vegetarian restaurant and she introduced many good vegetarian dishes. They definitely didn’t taste like the “real deals” but I enjoyed them very much. One dish I like the best was the “Salt and Pepper Oyster Mushroom”. The dish is an imitation of the Salt & Pepper Chicken, but instead of using chicken, the mushroom was used as an substitution and it is so good.

This was my first time of making this scrumptious vegetarian dish and apparently I need more practice and time to master it. I over-fried the basil leaves twice and finally I got it right.  Do not use too high heat or it will burn the basil leaves. However I would need her advises in mastering this dish. For my friend and all my vegetarian friends, this dish is specially dedicated to you all.

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.

3 Cups Chicken (三杯雞)

Picture 1 of 3

3 cups Chicken, this dish always gives me 3 kinds of feeling, the joyful of smell, sight & taste. Loving the number of 3, when translated into Cantonese it actually means a good sign of life ”生” so I like this dish (ya… superstitious).  This dish is a heritage of Taiwan, it is very popular dish almost every family know how to cook it. Especially, the “3 cups” actually refers to the sauce, and it can be cooked with any kinds of meats, even with seafood.
