So this is my first shot of a complete foodstyling and photography by myself. I am very excited to do this a bit more and hope you guys enjoy a trip down some pretty cool recipes. I will give some tips & tricks along the way and some plating instructions.
So enjoy my number 1!
Todays dish is one of my all time favorites and also delicious with sushi/basmati half and half rice. I didn’t put in too many unnecessary grams or ml because this way you learn to taste and cook for yourself. It’s really easy.
Chicken, Buttermilk, Korean Flour (or reg), Panko, Veggies (Cauliflower, Spinach, Shallots, Garlic, Spring Onions, Coriander, Shiitake, Celery), Sesame Oil, Oil (for deep-fry), Butter, Soy Sauce, Oyster Sauce, Nanami Togarashi, Fish Sauce, Limes, Mie Noodles, Japanese Mayo
Chicken Prep – Use filet as it’s the best part and fries real nice
Batter up – in Buttermilk/Egg (half and half with 1 egg – then korean flour (regular is corn flour works too but its crisper with the korean one as it gets even crisper – then back into the buttermilk (double batter) – at last into Panko (Asia Shop)
Batter – Flour – Batter – Panko
Deep Fry it up (Classic Veggie Oil) and throw the finished ones (golden brown) into a pasta colander or even better a sieve so the oil can drip off (forget the dish towels and crap – sticks to food is disgusting and wasteful)
Cut up Coriander, Cauliflower, Fresh Spinach, Celery, Garlic, spring onions, shallots, shiitake mushrooms
The amount is about a handful of each vegetable (you can substitute with different veggies but keep in mind that they should harmonize)
Fry the onions and garlic in a mix of oil, sesame oil and butter golden.
During that time cook up Mie Noodles in hot water
Throw in the rest of the veggies and season to taste with soy sauce, oyster sauce, nanami togarashi (or regular chilli), fish sauce and lime juice
Throw in the Noodles with bit more butter and mix it all up in a Wok (ideally)
Fry everything up so the noodles get a bit crisper (turn slowly)
Cut up a bit more Coriander
Serve the noodles on a plate sprinkle with fresh coriander and decorate the fried chicken bits on top
Drizzle Japanese Mayo over the top of everything (this you cannot substitute but you can get it at any asia shop)
Serve in smaller portions (looks better) and get seconds 🙂
