Coconut Prawn Fritters

Just a little afternoon snack  (and light dinner) I felt like having yesterday. Although I was actually craving for Singaporean Chili Crab. Yups, just not the right season (and country) for that. The prawns I got from the hotel’s kitchen, are from Dalian, I think. Nice to have a little of seafood again after a while…..

I shouldn’t be posting recipe in details because it’s soooo easy to cook.  Just make sure the prawns are cleaned & deveined, split in the back, marinate shortly in salt, pepper, lemon & garlic, rolled in flour, dipped in lightly whisked white egg, rolled in dessicated coconut.

Deep fried in oil until it turns color to beautiful yellowish. Place on paper towels to soak the remaining oil.
Ready to be devoured with sweet chili sauce dipping…….

Grilled Fish ala Jimbaran Bali

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

 

One of our favorite dish that we always have whenever we visit Bali. It’s probably the combination of beautiful ambience overlooking a beautiful beach stretched far into the horizon, toes burried in the white sand, fresh coconut juice off the shells and everything else that makes the grilled fish in this Jimbaran Beach  taste beautifully sweet and succulent.

The recipe is modified from Business Bali online. A pretty good recipe, although we can tell there’s a subtle flavour that’s missing. Probably those coconut shell charcoal grill taste. Very possible. I subs red snapper with grouper fish, which is more common here.  *in case you forget, we live in a middle of a grassland  😛 *
