Grilled Teriyaki Chicken Wings

Summer is almost over.It's the best time to do some grilling now before Fall,not too hot or humid.I bought some chicken wing on sale and decided to grill with teriyaki flavor.I also bought a ready make teriyaki sauce on sale at our local supermarket.To make life easier,I rub some salt ,sugar and pepper on the wings overnight in ziploc bag.I didn't marinate teriyaki sauce with wings instead I bash the wings with teriyaki sauce on the grill.
I cook the ready bottled teriyaki sauce with some sugar and corn starch until thick first before bashing on 60% cooked wings ,then grill again until golden brown or cooked.Mostly all Japanese restaurant cooked their own teriyaki sauce.It's much cheaper and taste better.
If you can't find any ready made teriyaki sauce,don't worried..let me share my recipe with you..simple and easy.




Teriyaki sauce:


1/2 cup soy sauce


1/2 mirin(sweet rice wine)


1/2 cup sugar


1 inch ginger smashed


3-4 cloves garlic(peel)


1/2 cup chicken broth or 3 tbsp chicken bullion powder


2-3 tbsp corn starch(for thickness)







Method:


1:Prepared a sauce pot at high heat,add in all ingredient expect cornstarch.Let it boil for first 10 minutes and reduce heat to simmer the sauce for another 20 minutes.Remove ginger and garlic.Prepared dissolved corn starch with cold water,add in the simmer sauce.Keep stirring until incorporate.Remove from the heat,let is cool down before store away in chiller.




Note:

You can use the teriyaki sauce on chicken breast,shrimp,seafood,beef or vegetable.You can find mirin in any Asian store at Japanese food shelve.

My Wilton's Cake Decoration

This week I graduated from Wilton's Decoration Course 2.So far I took three of four Wilton's Decoration courses.I find the course is really useful,helpful and excitement for me.If I didn't attend all the courses I have no idea how to decorate my cake,,hold the pipping bag,make beautiful flower or differentiate between the icing.Let's me present you with all my final creations here!
This cake is from Course 2 lesson.In this course I learned how to master the elegant new borders featuring rosettes, reverse shells and rope designs. It's also give mine cakes incredible dimension with the addition of bold color flow decorations. My instructor teach us how to create lovely new flowers like rosebuds, daisies, daffodils, mums and more. I use these flowers in a grand finale to attached to an impressive flower basket cake using the interwoven basket weave technique.




I used royal icing for all the flowers and color flow technique for the bird.
Of course I also used butter icing to makeup the cake and make basket weaves technique.
This cake is from my Fondant and Gum Paste Course.I choose Daisy as the Theme of my Fondant cake.
Personally,I find fondant and Gum Paste technique is much easier than the rest of the buttericing course I took.I learned intricate accents such as embroidery and lace, stringwork, garland and ruffle borders.You will discover the beauty of decorating with rolled fondant — for covering cakes with an immaculate smooth surface and shaping fun figures and elegant flowers.


This cake is from my Course 1 .Course 1 is the perfect place for me to start or appreciated the beauty of cake decoration . My Instructor show us the right way to decorate, step by step. I also share the fun with other students, who encourage me along the way. As I learn each new decorating skill, I will gain a sense of pride in mine accomplishments.
That why I took the following Wilton's course.The most important key to make beautiful and perfect cake decoration is to practise and practise!!.As they said practise make perfect!!.If you live in North America,I encourage you to take decoration class if you're interested in baking .I'm not advertising for Wilton's but personally I think Wilton's course is worth for you!.I guess maybe my instructor way of teaching is better than others instructor.Maybe?.You can look up at AC Moore,Michael's or Joanne for the classes offered!.To save $$$, I used the weekly coupon to buy the materials and tools!.Eventually I can use the tools ,pans and etc that I bought for my future baking,right?

Chocolate and Pandan(Screwpine Leaves) Mooncake

I make another batch of mooncake since the Mooncake Festival is around the corner,September 14th 2008 .This time I used Pandan flavor(Screwpine leaves) for the filling and chocolate flavour for the skin.I play around with the ingredients a bit.I add the dough with some chocolate powder to make it's more interesting than regular dough.I think the dough is too soft due to new sugar oil(sugar syrup )I just make.I understand the sugar syrup need to sit for months before I can use.To my surprised ,this flavor taste better than traditional ordinary mooncake.Too bad,I can only get Pandan flavor lotus from Malaysia,wish I can't find pandan flavor lotus in NYC.Yes,I can get lotus filling in NYC,maybe I should add some pandan flavor into it!.

Deep Fried Tempura Fish Maki

I have some leftover fried fish.What should I do with it?.Usually I don't throw away my leftover food.I modified or reheat it the next day to make another meal for myself.But this time,I decided to make tempura maki.This type of deep fried maki is really popular in any Japanese restaurant.Usually it's ideal for those who don't eat raw fish. Since I have the ready fried fish,all I need is just sushi rice,avocado,nori,tobiko and some Japanese mayo.
You can refer to this and this and this how to wrap your maki/roll






I coated the maki/roll with tempura flour batter before deep fried in clean oil for 10-15 minutes.Becareful when deep frying,do not let the nori break away or leaked in the oil.If that happend,throw away your roll.

Make sure when you cut maki,use a very sharp knife. After each cut,wipe your knife with wet paper towel or submerge your knife in a bowl of cold water.Then the sushi rice won't stick to your knife when you cut the next pieces.

This type of deep fried maki have to eat while the roll is still warm or hot .I like to eat this type of deep fried maki as it's with out sauce.I know some people like to dip with shoyu and wasabi.It's not really hard to make.You can use any leftover fried food for the roll/maki.

Homemade Red Bean Mooncake

I'm not a mooncake lover but love to learn how it make it for fun.I requested my aunt to teach me how to make mooncake when I was vacationing in Malaysia during Chinese New Year 2008.She show me her trick of making this sweet cake ,provided me with all her mold.Yes,she gave me a mooncake wooden mold and few doll biscuit wooden mold as gift.This is my first attempt making my own mooncake!!Let's get some information for those who have no idea what it's mooncake and why it's called mooncake.The Moon festival (also called the Mooncake or Mid-Autumn festival) 中秋节 falls on September 14th in the year 2008.In Malaysia and Singapore, it is also sometimes referred to as the Lantern Festival or "Mooncake Festival."This is the ideal time, when the moon is at its fullest and brightest, to celebrate the abundance of the summer's harvest. The traditional food of this festival is the mooncake, of which there are many different varieties. Ingredients:

*Sugar Oil*

1200 kg sugar

900 gm water

1 lime cut 3 pieces

*Dough*

600 gm flour

480 gm sugar oil

150 gm oil

1 tbsp alkaline water(kan sui in Cantonese)(air abu in Malay)

Note:

I bought some ready make lotus paste and red bean paste from Malaysia.My aunt gave me her recipe but I'm too lazy to make the paste since I can find ready make paste at the store.Anyway,I also found store sell ready make lotus paste in Chinatown,NYC.So there is no reason for me to make my own lotus paste!!.Yes,it's take alot of time as I know....phewwww!!

Mini mooncake,cute right ???.Too bad,the design on the cake is not clearly imprint.

_________________________________

Method:

1:Cook sugar oil in advance.Cook until the sugar oil turn caramelize or golden brown.To test the sugar oil texture and readiness,use a drop of cool water mix with sugar oil.If the sugar oil separate the water when mix with cool water,then it's ready.Store up to a year in a tight air container when it's cool down.

6:Bake the mooncake for 20 minutes.Prepare egg yolk for brushing.Removed the mooncake from oven after 20 minutes baking for brushing.Re-bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.Yield 10-12 regular size mooncake Note:

Accordingly to my aunt,DO NOT EAT mooncake immediately or the day after .Let the mooncake sit for 2 days before serve,it's taste better!.That right I try both day,and she was right!!I make some big mistake as you can see on the mooncake!.I dust my mooncake mold with flour,that why you can't see the mold design clearly.The second mistake it's the measurement conversion..I have hard time convert everything to cup or US measurement,so my dough was a bit too wet and the dough for individual wrapping is too much or too thick.It's supposed to be a thin layer just enough to cover the filling,now the skin is overwhelming.You can see my mooncake was out of shape.The 3rd mistake was the temperature!! I thought 130 C is 325 F!!Big mistake!! That the reason my mooncake look burn or well done!!..Well,as I said this is my first time making mooncake!! I learn hard from this mistake.I still have other lotus flavor..maybe next batch mooncake my skill will be better,hopefully...More mooncake to come.Stay tune!!

You can see my aunt lotus mooncake here!! .Big different right?.lol!!Pardon my inexperience skill:))

Shanghai Fried Noodles

Do you ever try Shanghai food?.I recalled years ago,the first time I ever try Shanghai food was at Joe's Shanghai in NYC.This restaurant have few branches in NYC.I fell in love with Shanghai fried noodles,the first time I taste it.My hubby love their Shanghai Fried Noodles too,he said it's the best fried noodles he ever eat!!This restaurant is Zagat rated ,you can google and see the review.I also find they have other famous and excellent delicatessen like Little Dragon Dumpling (小笼馒)..Anyway,I bought some fresh ingredients home and going to make my own Shanghai Fried Noodles Ingredients:

1 lb fresh shanghai noodles

500 gm tenderloin pork(sliced)

1/2 lb mustard green leaves(wash and drain)

20 clean and deviened shrimp

5-6 cloves minced garlic

3-4 shallot

*SEASONING*

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp soy sauce

2 tbsp thick soy sauce

2 tbsp oyster sauce

1 tbsp Chinese wine

2 tbsp sesame oil

1 tbsp chicken bullion powder

1 tbsp pepper powder

2 tbsp oil Method:

1:Cook the noodles in boiling, salted water until al dente – about 8 minutes. Use a sieve or collard to rinse under cold running water, drain well ,drizzling with some cooking oil,make sure it's not sticking together and set aside.

2:Prepare wok at high heat and add cooking oil,minced garlic and sliced shallot,fry for 1 minutes or until it's turn golden brown.Then add in tenderloin and shrimp,stirring continuously for about 2 minutes.Then scoop out on a plate ,set a side.
3:Add in cooked shanghai noodles,all the seasoning,fry for 5 minutes and mix well all the seasoning over the noodles.Then add in green mustard leaves ,cooked shrimp and tenderloin pork,stirring continuously for another 3 minutes before serve warm or hot.I like this noodles,coz it's not oiled in the package sitting on supermarket shelve for weeks.This noodles is suitable for noodles soup if you want something plain and blend.If you can't find Shanghai fresh noodles in any supermarket shelve,maybe you can replace with udon noodles but the texture is slightly different.Pr maybe you can make this noodles by yourself...you just need flour,baking powder and water!!
Don't mistake this dish as Hokkien_Mee 福建面!!.I know Emeril Lagasse of Food Network add hoisin sauce,corn starch and vinegar wine to this dish...I find it's too much and the flavour is too overpowering the noodles..Why corn starch??.Isn't the fresh noodles made from flour and it's quite sticky?. Anyway,it's your personal choice ...I submitted my Shanghai Fried Noodles to Ruth for this week Presto Pasta Night Roundup !!See you:)Note:
Adjust the saltiness and flavour to your own taste..Don't add too much seasoning,noodles tend to absorb liquid .

Tempura Matcha /Green Tea Ice Cream

I have the urge to make Tempura Ice Cream for the longest but never have the chance until I get a box of tempura flour and green tea powder.I bought a big container of green tea powder from Malaysia when I was there few months ago..So here come my Green Tea Powder mix with Vanilla Ice Cream=Matcha ice cream!!.) (抹茶) Matcha is a fine, powdered green tea used particularly in the Japanese tea ceremony, as well as to flavour and dye foods such as mochi and soba noodles, green tea ice cream and a variety of wagashi (Japanese confectionery).To make this dessert more challenging,I deep fried it with tempura flour. Japanese Green Tea/Matcha ice cream encased in pound cake, battered and fried. Ingredients for Making Matcha Ice Cream:

500ml vanilla ice cream

1 tbsp matcha

1 tbsp warm water

Ingredients for Tempura:

1 pack tempura dry flour

1 loaf butter cake (sliced) or sliced white bread.

3-4 cup oil for frying Method:

1:Soften ice cream at room temperature or transferring to refrigerator for 20-30 minutes.Do not allow it to melt completely.

2:Mix the matcha powder and lukewarm water in a cup and stir well to make a smooth paste.

3:Put half the ice cream into a mixing bowl.Add the matcha liquid and mix thoroughly with a rubber spatula,then add the rest of the ice cream.Put the bowl into the freezer for an hour.

4:Prepare sliced pound cake or white bread .Scoop out even balls of ice cream and wrap each slice cake or bread over the ice cream until well covered.Repeat this step until all matcha ice cream finished.Refreeze wrapped ice cream again for 30 minutes to one hour.

5:Prepare tempura batter following the box instruction.

6:Heat oil for deep fry at medium heat or 350F.Dip frozen wrapped matcha ice cream into the batter quickly and deep fry for 5 minutes or until the batter is crispy.

7:Remove tempura matcha ice cream from fryer ,cut and serve immediately. As you can see from the photo,the tempura matcha ice cream is melting away due to hot weather and deep fried process.
Too bad I don't have Rum or Grand Mainer.I prefer my tempura matcha ice cream burn with alcohol first before serve:0
Note:

I used white bread since I don't have pound cake.Of course,pound cake taste better :P..You can use any topping you like eg: whipped cream,chocolate sauce,strawberry sauce or alcohol.If you don't have tempura batter,use regular flour mix with baking powder,there you go...Stay tune for more Japanese dish!.
