Fusilli Pasta with Tuna and Sweet Corn

This is another quick lunch. It is fast, easy and simple.

Corn and tuna is a great combination. My kids loves it!! 

Fusilli Pasta with Tuna,  Sweetcorn 
Recipe source: adapted from Baby Sumo

80g fusilli pasta ( i used mixed spinanch and carrot fusilli )
1/3 can tuna (i used can tuna chunk in olive oil)
1 shallot, finely chopped
6 cherry tomatoes, halved (i did not add this)
A handful sweetcorn (you can use canned or frozen)
2 quail's egg ( i did not add this)
Salt and pepper, to taste
2 tbsp EVOO (i used olive oil from can tuna)

( i added 1 tbsp mayonnaise and 1/4 tsp condensed milk)

To do:
1. Boil quail's egg for 4-5 minutes in simmering water, according to your preference. Then transfer to iced water,  the cold water sets the membrane so the egg can be easily peeled. Halve the egg. (Note: If making for packed lunch, it would be better to hard boil the quail's egg)

(i did not  add quail's egg)

2.  Cook pasta according to pack instructions in some salted water with a few drops of olive oil. Drain and run under cold water to stop pasta from cooking further.

3. Place pasta in a large bowl, and drizzle with 2 tbsp EVOO. Add shallot, tuna, sweetcorn and toss well. Season with salt and pepper. (i mixed tuna with mayonnaise)

4. This can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container in the fridge. Suitable as pack lunches.

Shark Fin Dumpling ~鱼翅饺

This Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow), is one of my favorite dumpling. Although it is named Shark Fin Dumpling, but they contain no actual shark fin in it. Some say the look and shape of the dumpling does look like shark fin and other do include in imitation shark fin, though. I am lucky to have spotted this long hibernating in the book shelf chinese dim sum book ‘香港地道小吃’ translated as 'Hong Kong Authentic Tapas' Well, Do, you find this look like Shark's Fin?? 看看形状像不像鱼翅呢??  Filling for the ingredients are prawn, mince meat, carrot, yam bean and black fungus. Get ready the filling and the wanton wrappers. This is the parade of my Shark's Fin dumpling ... lol Homemade parchment paper liner. Arrange them neatly into the bamboo steamer. HOT! HOT! From the steamer!! Loaded with filling ..YUM! ENJOY~ Shark Fin Dumpling (yu chi gow) (Scallop dumpling /Cilantro dumpling - depends which filling you using) Recipe adapted from  ‘香港地
