3 servings and about $16 per serving.
This is my first home cook meal after my vacation. Didn’t feel like to cook anything. Didn’t have any food in the refrigerator either, this morning I went to buy groceries. It was raining like crazy, so I didn’t think too much just grabbed whatever I saw and ended up missing so many things. Anyway, I bought 2 lobsters today and meant to make lobster with ginger and scallion for dinner, and then I realized that as not enough for dinner. I didn’t want to make too many dishes, so I tried to find some noodles to cook with the lobster. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find enough of anything to cook with it. So at the end I used 2 different kind of Maifan to make this dish.
2 Lobster about 3.5 pounds
Ginger 5 slices
5 whole Scallion
Shallot 2 big cloves
½ small size Onion
Cut ginger, scallion, onion and shallot into shreds.
Cut lobster into smaller pieces. Drain all the lobster juice to a separated container and take the fat out too for another dish.
Precook maifan in boiling water according to the direction on the back.
Add about 1/3 cup of corn starch to the lobster, and deep fry in hot oil for about 4-5 minutes. If you are cooking with a home gas stove like me, don’t cook too many pieces at once. Cook a few pieces at a time will be easier.
Leave about 3 tbsps. oil in the skillet, add scallion, ginger, onion, shallot and 3 tbsps. XO sauce and Sauteed for 3 minutes.
Add maifan along with 1tbsp soy sauce and 1tbsp oyster sauce and mix together.
Add lobster and 1tsp chicken bouillon powder to the maifan and continue to mix everything together. At the end add 2 tbsps. Cooking wine and mix.
在龙虾里加约1/3 杯玉米淀粉, 并在热油中油炸约4-5 分钟。如果你是像我这样的家用煤气炉做饭, 不要一次炸太多。一次炸几块就容易多了。
留下大约3汤匙油在锅里, 加葱、姜、洋葱、红葱和3汤匙XO 酱炒3分钟。
