Stir-Fried Dried Squid and Vegetables (NO Knife! Kitchen Shears) - Video Recipe

We received some dried squids when we visited the nearby shrine for our son's Omiyamairi (the first shrine visit) and my darling's Yakubarai (ceremony to drive away evil spirits). I decided to make a dish out of them.

It turned out to a very tasty and delicious stir-fried dish, goes great with white rice. Oyster-sauce flavor, with a hint of chive is obviously addictive. Very filling with lots of bean sprouts ;)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAHg88WH8To

You don't need a knife but use kitchen scissors / kitchen shears!

Of course, you can use regular squids.

FYI: Hatsumiya-Mairi (初宮参り) or Omiyamairi (お宮参り) is one of the traditional celebration events for Japanese babies. Whenever a newborn is over a month old, we bring the baby to a nearby shrine for a greeting (giving the invocation).

NO OVEN! Cheese Tart in a Frying Pan - Video Recipe

You don't need an oven :)
Crunchy crust and moist cream cheese filling. yummy!!!


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJgR90_-W_4

Just make sure you pan fry it on a very low heat or it can burn easily.



---------------------------------
NO OVEN! Cheese Tart in a Frying Pan

Difficulty: Easy
Time: 1hr + cooling time
Number of servings: 8inch (20cm) frying pan

NOTE: Ingredients are listed in both American and metric measurements. However, please use a kitchen scale (metric measurements) to get a perfect result.

Ingredients:
((Crust))
50g (4 tbsp.) butter *room temperature
3 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 egg yolk
100g (1 cup) all-purpose flour
((Filling))
100g (1/2 cup) cream cheese
3 tbsp. granulated sugar
100ml whipping cream
1 egg
2 tbsp. lemon juice
a few drops of vanilla extract
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour

Directions:
((Crust))
Cream the butter in a bowl. Add sugar and mix until white and creamy. Add egg and mix well. Sift in flour then mix well with a spatula. When the crust starts to crumble, use your hands to mix together until formed. Press the crust evenly into the bottom and up the sides (about an inch high) of the frying pan. Lightly prick the bottom of the crust with a fork.
((Filling))
Microwave the cream cheese at 500w for about 30 seconds until soft. Put in a bowl and mix until creamy. Add sugar, whipping cream, an egg, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and flour in order and mix well until smooth.
((Cooking))
Fill the cream cheese filling into the crust. Cover and cook on very low heat for about 30 minutes. The bottom of the crust burns easily, so you may want to place the pan on a wet towel to cool down the pan a little bit after every 10 minutes or so. Cool completely and chill in the fridge before removing from the frying pan, or the crust can crumble.

You can bake in the oven at 180C (350F) for 30~40 minutes.

30 Shumai wrappers (or wonton wrappers)
filling
* 250g (8.8oz.) ground pork
* 100g (3.5oz.) chopped prawn
* 50g (1.8oz.) canned scallops
* 50g (1.8oz.) canned crab meat
* 4 tbsp. chopped long onion
* 2 chopped dried Shiitake mushrooms
* 1 tbsp. grated ginger
* 1 tbsp. sesame oil
* 1/2 tbsp. sugar
* 1/2 tbsp. soy sauce
* salt and pepper
cooking oil
green peas if you like

Directions:
1. Put the ingredients for the filling in a bowl and mix well by hand (hand is better but using a spoon is okay) until all ingredients are combined and smooth.
2. Place the filling in the middle of the wrapper. Then form an "o" with your left hand and push the filling into the "o" to shape into a little cylinder. Drop onto a counter to flatten out the bottom. Use a spoon to fold in the edges. Top with a green pea if you like. (please watch the video)
3. Heat cooking oil in a frying pan. Place the Shumai and cook on high heat until the bottoms become a bit brown. Add 100ml water, when it becomes to a boil, cover, and steam on med-low heat for 10 min until cooked. Uncover and cook until the water is gone.

Serve with a mixture of soy sauce and a little yellow mustard if preferred.
