QUICKIE #2: POACHED SHRIMPS W/ CHILLI SOY SAUCE CONDIMENT


Came across these shrimps at the car park of Stutong Commecial Centre. Mostly on late afternoons or weekends, you'll find vendors selling local vegetables and the likes from their parked vans. These farmed sea shrimps of moderate size are at RM15 per kilo, quite a bargain considering it was RM16 about 15 minutes earlier!

Boil enough water in a wok to cover the shrimps. Add 2 tsp. of salt, 1 tbsp. of oil and 3 stalks of flattened lemongrass. Let the water boil for 5 minutes before putting in the shrimp. Cover the wok and poach the shrimps for 3 - 4 minutes before turning off the flame. Let the shrimps sit in the water for another 5 minutes before taking off the lid and serve.

The condiment sauce consist of chopped chilli, limequart juice with zest, light soy sauce and fruit sauce (Teochew calls it Kek-Eu), which is a citrus flavored oil.

That was lunch.

As the name implies, it's all about nothing! Kongkaying is like grasping in the air - more like hot air with occasional fartulence. Hopefully, something aromatic will come out of it! If not...

May the Farce be With You!
