I always have difficulties when comes to think what should I cook for dinner. My mind will be blank and I will keep staring at the stuffs I have in my fridge or I will go round and round the market hopefully I can get something that my whole family will like. And these were what I got from the market in less than 30 minutes...small fresh prawns, squids, fish, meat, few kinds of vegetables etc. Oh yes, I grabbed almost everything...LOL!!!
So then, here came something different for dinner last night! "At least it's not rice again" ...that's what my little girl commented..:p
Saw this (kind of) recipe on a TV series, and I was, okay..I'll make that! Well, not bad at all, they were all been walloped up! It's alittle messy when comes to clean up the squids, you know the kind of gooey and slippery all over the hands....but I enjoy rubbing them though...haha!
These are what you have to prepare....(enough for 4 persons)
