My Cooking Journey #6: Spinach Soup, Steam Egg, Coke Chicken Wings

by - Friday, January 16, 2015

Dinner for last week was very simple. We were on a mission of spring cleaning and de-cluttering the house, so there's not much time to cook. Here goes.

Spinach Soup

Ikan Bilis (washed)
Dry Scallops (washed and soften)
Water (the amount of soup you want)
Egg (beaten)

1. Heat some cooking oil in the pot.
2. Add in garlic, ikan bilis and scallops and stir fry till fragrant.
3. Pour in water and let it boil for 15min. Turn to small heat and let it simmer for 1 hour.
4. Strain the soup to remove the ikan bilis and scallops.
5. Turn heat up, add in fishball and spinach and cook till both cooked.
6. Add pepper to taste.
7. Off heat. Pour in egg and stir. Serve.

You may add some salt to taste. I did not add any salt because there there's already saltiness from the ikan bilis and scallops.

Steam Egg
2 Eggs
200 ml water / stock
Salt and Pepper (Optional)

1. Beat 2 eggs and add in the water or stock.
2. Strain the egg mixture into the steaming plate.
3. Cover with cling wrap or a lid during steaming.

The rule of thumb for the steam egg is 1 part egg to 2 parts liquid. In my case, my eggs are 55g each, so liquid used is about 200ml. Straining the egg mixture and covering it while steaming will give you a smooth texture. I used the ikan bilis soup base from the above spinach soup instead of water. This adds flavour to the egg and hence I omitted the salt. Before eating, you can also add some soy sauce and sesame oil over the egg.

Coke Chicken Wings

1 tsp Light soy sauce
1 tsp Dark soy sauce
1 tsp Sesame oil

8 Mid-wings
2 slices of Ginger
2 cloves of Garlic (no need to chopped)
200ml Coke

1. Marinate the wings in the marinate for about half hour.
2. Heat up some oil in the pan. 
3. Add in ginger, garlic and wings. Fry the wings till brown.
4. Pour in the Coke.
5. Let it simmer for about 15 mins till the sauce is reduced and thickened.

Big J shares all the dishes with us and we limit him to only one piece of chicken wing. Small J shares the soup and egg.
