After the surprised seafood congee cooked by
my wild boar Daddy, I thought I will reciprocate and cook something nice for wild boar Daddy :p Found some medium sized shrimps in the freezer and with one salted duck egg , some curry leaves from the side garden and tada in the shortest time ever , I managed to whip up this artery clogging dish good enough the serve the Lordship :p The aroma of this decadent dish lingers on into my dreamland…hhmmm that good! Ask the wild boar..ooops Daddy I mean if you don’t believe me :p This is a great dish to serve when you have invited guests to dinner.
The salted duck yolk is the killer but we don't take it often so it is okay to indulge once in a blue moon. It does make the whole dish special. The aroma of the mashed yolk being sauted was great. Coating the shrimps shells was tongue licking good...haha I have no words to describe the estactic joy tasting this delicious, so tongue be it. Honestly the most important ingredient in this dish is the salted egg yolk. I can have the whole plate of shrimp delights all to myself and not wanting to share with anyone but I can't coz of the killer salted duck yolk . I love salted duck egg and I must not have too many in the house or I will kick the bucket sooner lol! Just kidding..
my wild boar Daddy and the piggies will keep an eye on this. I am only allowed to buy two each time .
look! how good those mashed killer are..
.....lusciously mouth-watering and the aroma hmmmm...great!
I stole one out just for my photo shoot session...haha I always
tax one before everyone has a chance to eat :p
can you see the killer yolk coated on the shrimps...
so tongue licking good lol! really! you have to lick the mashed
yolk off the shell.....
so tongue licking good is aptly used in this case
