SMÖRDEGSPIZZA MED HAVGUS 12 OCH MANUKA HONUNG

På sommaren lagar jag ännu mer mat än vanligtvis, och då är det bra om man har lite enkla recept som ändå är riktigt goda. Till denna använder jag mig bland annat av osten Havgus 12 från Arla Unika och MGO Manuka honung. Osten gör det hela riktigt smakrikt, och honungen är god samtidigt som MGO Manuka honungen sägs ha välgörande egenskaper. (den innehåller methylglyoxal (MGO), ett bioaktivt ämne som anses hindra bakterier från att fastna på celler.)

Smördegspizza ingredienser

  • 1 paket smördeg eller så gör du din egna
  • 5 skivor skinka (kan uteslutas)
  • 100 gram Havgus 12 från Arla Unika
  • 2 schalottenlökar i bitar
  • 1 dl Krossade tomater med 1 dl raps eller olivolja
  • 8-10 cocktailtomater, delade på mitten

här gör du

  1. Värm upp ugnen till 175C.
  2. Lägg smördegen på en plåt.
  3. Blanda krossade tomater med 1 msk olivolja och bre ut över botten.
  4. Skär skinkan i mindre bitar och sprid ut över smördegen.
  5. Dela schalottenlöken och lägg på den.
  6. Sprid ut cocktailtomaterna.
  7. Hyvla stora bitar ost över hela botten.
  8. In i ugnen ca 15-20 minuter.
  9. Ta ut och ringla honung över.

FRIED RICE, SÅ OTROLIGT GOTT

När jag kokar ris så gör jag alltid för mycket ris, så att vi kan ha Fried Rice nästa dag. För även om du kan använda dig av nykokt kris, så är alltid kylskåpskallt ris väldigt mycket bättre att laga Fried Rice med. Detta receptet är gjort med inspiration från Din Tai Fung. Eftersom mina barn har levt halva sina liv i Kina, så saknar de ofta mat därifrån, detta var en rätt min son alltid beställde när vi var på Din Tai Fung.

MORMORS KÖTTBULLAR

Så här brukar jag laga mina köttbullar, och jag serverar dem alltid med lite brun sås, potatis och lingonsylt. Detta är också receptet som min mormor använde, ett helt vanligt och riktigt gott köttbullerecept! Hon brukade alltid rulla dem till riktigt små köttbullar, jag rullar dem ofta mer medelstora, men de är alltid som godast när de är små. Jag lagar oftast en dubbel sats när jag ändå håller på. Köttbullar är ju alltid gott.

Laga en riktigt god ost och skinkpaj.

Till detta receptet har jag använt mig av en helt vanlig klassisk pajdeg. Den funkar att fylla med det mesta, och är lika god när den är nys uttagen ur ugnen som när den stått i kylen och du värmer upp den igen. Man kan baka pajen i en porslinsform, pyrex, stengods, engångs aluminium eller i gjutjärn som jag gjort här. Med gjutjärn får man ett härligt frasigt skal, därför gillar jag ofta att använda mig av det till just matpajer.

Mama Ma Lin Fried Chicken With Green Peppers

This is a dish that is supposed to be done with pork, but most of the time I use chicken instead. The first time I did it with chicken was because they didn’t have any pork in my little shop in Shanghai when I lived there. Since then I must have cooked the dish at least a 100 times with chicken, so I suppose we are just used to it… This is one of my kids favourite dishes.

Ingredients for 4-5 persons if you eat it as a full meal.

500 gram chicken filet

100 gram salted peanuts with no shell

3 egg whites

80 gram of cornstarch (or 16 tsp.)

2 decilitre chicken stock

4 teaspoons rice wine

4 teaspoons Chinese soy sauce

1 scallion the white part

1-1,5 teaspoon of ginger powder

1-2 thinly sliced garlic

3 teaspoons of white sugar

1 green pepper seeded and cut into little pieces

0,5 -1 Chili flakes

1, Cut the chicken into little pieces.

2, Beat the egg whites and mix with 60 gram of corn starch.(12 teaspoons)

3, Add the chicken, mix it and set aside.

4,Mix the stock with 4 teaspoons of cornstarch, rice wine, soy sauce, scallions, ginger, garlic and sugar. Set aside.

5, Heat some vegetable oil in a wok or a big frying pan. Add the chicken and stir fry for a minute to seal in the juices.

6, Remove, drain and set aside.

7, Pour out the oil and reheat the wok.

8, Add the green peppers and fry them for a minute. And then you add the chicken.

9, Stir the sauce to blend it and add it to the wok.

10, Add the peanuts and chilli flakes.

11, Let it all boil until the chicken is done.

Remove and serve as a dish with noodles.

Or serve it as one of many dishes.

Enjoy!

Chinese New Year Dinner

Since I moved to China the first time in 2002, Chinese New Year has been a part of my life. And I am a bit sad to confess that we actually celebrate Chinese New Year way more than the other New Year. I am not sure why, we just do. For my kids China will always be home just like Sweden is. And I think it is nice for them to take part of both cultures. And as you might have noticed, a big part of my heart is still left in Shanghai. Chinese New Year is also called Spring Festival or Lunar New Year and it marks the first new moon in the lunisolar calendar. The Chinese lunisolar calendar is based on cycles of the earth and the moon. The legend tells a story about the villagers that chased away a beast called Nian with red colours, noise and bright lights. So there is the reason behind everybody wearing something red for the festival and the firecrackers. Today most people don’t use firecrackers anymore as it is bad for the environment. Each year is named after one of the 12 Chinese Zodiac animals. And 2020 is the year of the rat.

Beer can chicken at our friends place. The can has beer and herbs in it, and the chicken gets a nice flavour. When you put it on the grill, make  sure the lid is on. It takes 1-1,5 hour. And you can add some rub on the outside.

Per made a nice sauce made with some cream, syrup and some stock. And a salad and potatoes. 91C04C5C-5B0E-4213-B926-2ED3FC59581765825F02-48D5-40E6-8C22-C9DD8C49E0A5


Dinner at our place

We had some friends over for dinner, and Lars was in charge over the starter. Carpaccio, an old classic that we haven’t eaten for 10 Years. I wonder why, it is so nice!! He added parmesan, ruccola and olive oil. And lots of pepper. As a main, chicken in the owen with jus as they say in France.

Recipe for the chicken;

1 corn chicken (or as many as you like)              

Mix butter with crushed garlic, and put it under the skin of the chicken.  Salt and pepper all around.                                          

Put it into the owen for 45 minutes on 225 C, and then 30 more minutes on 175C. Make sure the chicken is totally cooked!

The “jus”

Simmer the chickens sauce with red wine, salt and pepper until it becomes a bit thick.

We served the meal with potatoes and sallad.

And the sallad on the side that was really really nice!!

Recipe for the sallad;

Make a vinaigrette first;                                

2 tbl spoons pumpkin seed oil
1/2 dl sake or mirin
1 1/2 tbl Spoon rice winegar
1/2 dl japanse soy sauce
1 1/4 dl olive oil
salt and pepper                                                

Mix it all really well

For the sallad;                                              

150 gram fresh haricots verts
4 apples that you peel and cut into pieces
2 shallots
3 table Spoons sugar
1 tbl spoon olive oil
1 tbl spoon butter
1 small bag spinach leafs  (70 g)
1 bag  mixed sallad (150 g)
2 dl walnuts

Mix the apple slices with the sugar. And fry them on medium heat in a mix of butter and olive oil until they are golden.

Mix the sallad with the vinaigrette. And add the fried apples last.

 


Home made dumplings

My kids prefer home made dumplings, or Jiaozi as they say in China.  I have to make them a few times every month.  And I always have one of the kids to help me with them. Because it takes some time to make them..

Favourite filling; minced chicken, cabbage, spring onion, garlic, fresh ginger. But the sauce is mega important!! Japanese soy sauce, rice wine and squeezed ginger all mixed together. Yum!! IMG_9888
