Alhamdulillah, it is our third anniversary today.
It has been three most wonderful years of sharing our love, joy and happiness together. May our beautiful life continues with the blessing of Allah all way through.
I made sotong goreng tepung (crispy deep fried squid) with chevre cheese and sweet chilli sauce for appetizer.
I used the similar flour combination as oven fried chicken but omitted the marinating part with cream. The squid was dried, dipped into the flour and fried until they turned golden. Sotong goreng tepung has always been our favourite, we just couldn’t get enough of it every time
For main menu, I prepared this country chicken and deep fried king prawn with creamed spinach.
I fell in love with Whitney Miller’s country chicken and creamed spinach, the menus that brought a total change of her life for winning Masterchef USA. But I couldn’t find the recipe anywhere on the internet
So again, I used the oven fried chicken recipe but pan fried the chicken with some olive oil 4-5 mins on each side. Use chicken breast for this recipe and make sure it is not too thick. For creamed spinach, I used the recipe here. I was happy that eventually both turned out very well
I made butterfly cut on the back of the prawns, seasoned them with some black pepper, garlic powder and salt. Then I deep fried for 2-3 minutes before serving them hot with the chicken, spinach and pomegranate (buah delima).
I also made this vanilla slice for the dessert using a recipe from Masterchef Australia‘s webpage.
I may have made some mistake as my slice was not as good as shown, but rather thick with pastry and kind of heavy too. The custard was good though
We successfully had a beautiful candle light dinner with table for three
May The Love That We Share Last Our Lifetime Through. Happy anniversary my sweet sweetheart.
I love you with all my heart ♥
