    Dinner 2020

    Scored myself some beautiful, large, live, wild caught shrimp. Cooked with a lemon (zest and juice), olive oil, garlic, ginger and chilli sauce. Served with tagliatelli. Finished with black pepper (freshly ground, of course!)

    I had a Nyetimber when I was back in England last year. It is extremely good!

    Breakfast 2020!

    Wontons in peppery soup with Emilia sonchifolia.
  6. It's not related to dandelion, but to sunflowers. But yes, mildly peppery.
  7. Here's one I knew about but only saw in the supermarket for the first time today. Simplified Chinese 一点红; Traditional Chinese 一點紅 (Mandarin: yī diǎn hóng; Cantonese: jat1 dim2 hung4). Emilia sonchifolia, lilac tasselflower or cupid's shaving brush. Mostly used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), but the leaves and shoots are edible. Note: The literal meaning of the Chinese is "one spot (of) red", which is blatantly untrue, as the 280 grams of greenery I bought contained not one, but two reddish flowers.

    Dinner 2020

    Squid with fermented black beans, garlic, ginger, chilli, oyster sauce and snow peas - a local traditional pairing. Served with orzo - a not at all local or traditional pairing. But it worked.

    Breakfast 2020!

    Jiaozi with "Super Hot" Sriracha. The sauce wasn't that hot - to my ravaged palate.

    Dinner 2020

    This picture is not of my dinner last night. Although dinner worked out just fine, photographing it was a disaster, which is a pity because the dish actually looked good. This is a steamed sea bass and last night I steamed another. If you try to imagine the cucumber in the picture is steamed shrimp, you may get an inkling of how last night's version looked. The chilli and green onion on the fish was the same, but I used ginger in the slashes instead of the garlic shown here. I also omittted the soy sauce, only using Shaoxing wine. I served the fish and prawns with asparagus and rice. I forget what I served the the one pictured with - it was August 2016.
