Green Salad with Fuji Apples and Oven-Grilled Pork Belly with Pinakurat

No comments:

Dinners are special for my family; it's the only meal of the day we get to share food at the dinner table except for weekends and holidays of course. Last night was no exception. After my husband pick me up from work until we reached home, we couldn't decide what to eat for dinner. It depends on what's the fastest dish I can whip up in the kitchen. Pork barbecue was his answer and mine was some greens and apple salad.


Some of the ingredients are not available at home so we pass by the grocers. Some fruit, sack of rice and veggies are already in our cart and we are almost done shopping when we saw the shelf of sukang pinakurat.  The main ingredient of this Filipino dipping sauce was coconut sap or tuba and birds eye chilies or labuyo. I heard from friends that it's perfect for grilled dishes so we gave it a try.  It did not disappoint even if its smell is too strong for me. It does compliment the oven grilled pork belly though-sarap ng anghang di nangangagat.

For the oven grilled pork belly, I mixed 1 sachet of marinade mix to 1/2 kilo of meat and then oven grill it until it's well done. Very simple and quick but on other days when I have plenty of time, I create my own marinade mix from natural ingredients- mahirap yung laging instant di ba. For the salad, I had some romaine lettuce washed and roughly chopped, 1 medium size tomato cubed, a cucumber cubed and 1 Fuji apple cored, peeled and cubed, cut into bite size. For the salad dressing, I used the juice of 1 lemon and olive oil, salt, and pepper to taste. I pour the dressing just before serving the salad, this prevents the veggies from becoming limp-I like my greens crisp. Over dinner, we get to talk about what happened during the day at work and at school. Nothing beats family bonding like this.

Shrimp Corn Chowder

No comments:


I wanted to eat prawns, I love prawns but I know very limited recipes of this crustacean. Yesterday as I check for recipes for dinner, I found this and it’s a jackpot. My family loves it, I love it. I was uncertain how it would taste as I have not cooked this before but it was like magic. The corn loves the butter they are a perfect combo, need not use corn starch coz the potatoes have the starch leaking from it once cooked and the prawns oh yum. I can guarantee you that this is a delectable comfort food. It is very easy to cook and does not require too many ingredients. You will love this, your family will love this.

You will need:

3-4 cloves of garlic minced

1 small onion minced

A knob of butter

3 ears of corn cut off from the cob

2 medium size potatoes diced

Half kilo of medium or large prawns, skinned and deveined

5 cups of fresh full cream milk

1 cup of water
In the cooking pot melt the butter, add garlic until fragrant, add onion until translucent. Add corn including the cob and the potatoes. Pour milk and water, cover and let simmer. Boil until potatoes are soft. Add prawns and cook for 3-4 minutes, make sure not to overcook the prawns. Add little water if it gets too thick. Serve hot.
