My new and unusual cooking attempt over the past weekend. 🙂
I will call this a meat roll since I don’t know if there is actually a name for it. I learned this from a Taiwanese cooking programme, but I made some modifications to the recipe. It was served with fries and Caesar salad (my all-time favourite salad!).
My meat roll was made using bacon (as an outer wrap), seasoned chicken fillet (the second layer) and vegetables in the middle. Since bacon is normally salty, the chicken meat was seasoned very lightly only with salt, pepper and oil. Vegetables wise, I used french beans, carrot and enoki mushrooms. Nice!
This was my first time using bacon in my cooking. I am not a vegetarian (and I can never be one because I love seafood) but I also don’t fancy meat, especially pork. So, this is definitely a rare dish!
And I fried them, including the fries!
Thanks to Philips Airfryer – the latest addition to my range of kitchen appliances! It is a brilliant product that enables frying of food without using oil! DS and I can now enjoy healthy fried food once in a while when we feel like having something different from my usual cooking! I also love the fact that is it very easy to use, and my kitchen does not become oily after frying. Basically, it’s hassle-free!
Here are what I have tried.
It’s so nice to be able to enjoy fries and fried chicken wings without feeling guilty about it! The fries smelt really great, and were as good as those deep-fried ones.
Oil-free prawn crackers (aka keropok in Malay language). Just took 2 minutes to fry!
But of course, there are also limitations to what the Airfryer can do. One good example is that it is not suitable for frying food with batter, such as tempura.
I have yet to use the Airfryer much and in fact, I don’t really expect to use it very often in my cooking, but it is certainly a great product to have when it comes to satisfying our occasional craving for fried food . 🙂
