Recipe Roasted Pigeon Squab with Spicy Szecuan Spice

Squab is a junvenile domestic pigeon or its meat.  Literary, the Swedish word skvabb means “loose, fat flesh” It formerly applied to all dove and pigeon species and their meat. Nowdays, squab meat derived from domesticated pigeons. The meat of dove and pigeon gamebirds hunted primarily for sport is rarely called squab

Usually considered a delicacy, squab is tender, moist and richer in taste than many commonly-consumed poultry meats, but there is relatively little meat per bird, the meat being concentrated in the breast.Squab is above the hype cycle. Squab is dark meat, and the skin is fatty, like that of duck. The meat is very lean, easily digestible, and “rich in proteins, minerals, and vitamins”.It has been described as having a “silky” texture, as it is very tender and fine-grained.

Commercially raised birds “take only half as long to cook” as traditionally raised birds, and are suitable for roasting, grilling, or searing, whereas the traditionally raised birds are better suited to casseroles and slow-cooked stews.The meat from older and wild pigeons is tougher than squab, and requires a long period of stewing or roasting to tenderize. The consumption of squab probably stems from the relative ease of catching birds which have not yet fledged, or that unfledged birds have more tender meat.Once a squab has fledged, its weight decreases significantly.

Squab or Young Pigeon, Daging Burung Dara

In Chinese cuisine, squab is a part of celebratory banquets for holidays such as Chinese New Year, usually served deep-fried. Cantonese-style pigeon is typically braised in soy sauce, rice wine and star anise then roasted with crispy skin and tender meat. Squabs are sold live in Chinese marketplaces to assure freshness, but they can also be dressed in two styles. “Chinese-style” (Buddhist slaughter) birds retain their head and feet, whereas “New York-dressed” (Confucian slaughter) birds retain their entrails, head and feet.

In Indonesian cuisine, especially Sundanese and Javanese, squab is usually seasoned, spiced with coriander, turmeric, garlic and deep fried in a lot of palm oil. It is served with sambal chilli sauce, tempeh, tofu, vegetables, and nasi timbel (rice wrapped in banana leaf). The other famous preparation among Indonesian chinese descent called Burung Dara Goreng Mentega or buttered squab. The Squab is marinated with lemon lime. worchestershire sauce then deep fried, drained and tossed with sauteed garlic with butter and the rest of the marinade ingredient.

Zhangcha Tea Smoked Duck (Goose) Recipe with Homemade Plum Sauce ala Dentist Chef


Homemade Tea Smoked Duck Recipe. Eversince i’ve made my homemade Smoked beef, i was tempting to try smoking any kind of food. I ever heard about tea smoked salmon before but none for duck or a goose. Zhangcha duck, tea-smoked duck, or simply smoked duck, (literally: 樟茶鸭 zhāngchá yā, camphor-tea duck), is a quintessential dish of Szechuan cuisine. It is prepared by hot smoking a marinated duck over tea leaves and twigs of the camphor plant. Due to its complicated preparation, zhangcha duck is eaten more often in banquets or festive events than as a daily household item.

recipe smoked duck tea smoked duck goose breast recipe dentist chef

tea smoked duck recipe szangcha sancha duck

Making tea smoked duck or tea smoked goose is quite simple. The duck or goose is first marinated for several hours with a rub containing a typical combination of whole or crushed Sichuan pepper, huangjiu or baijiu (fermented or distilled Chinese wine), ginger, garlic, and salt, with much of it rubbed inside the cavity of the duck. For intensity of taste, sometimes the marinade rub is augmented with choujiu, black pepper, tea leaves, and camphor leaves. Following the marination, the duck is quickly blanched in hot water to tighten the skin, and then towel and air dried. This step ensures that the skin of the duck has a crisp texture upon completion. A wok is then prepared for smoking the duck with black tea leaves and camphor twigs and leaves. Following a smoke treatment of approximately 10-15 minutes, the duck is then steamed for another 10 minutes before being deep fried in vegetable oil until its skin is crisp. The duck is consumed wrapped in clam-shaped buns called gebao.

Recipe Tofu Omelette (Tahu Telur) with Peanut Sauce, Meat Floss and Garlic Chieves

Omelette or omelet is a made of beaten eggs that cooked in a frying pan, sometimes folded around a filling such as cheese, vegetables, meat (often ham), or some combination of the above. To obtain a fluffy texture, whole eggs or sometimes egg whites only are beaten with a small amount of milk or cream, or even water, the idea being to have “bubbles” of water vapor trapped within the rapidly cooked egg. Some home cooks add baking powder to produce a fluffier omelette.

Recipe Steamed Sea Scallop with Tausi or Fermented Black Bean and Beehoon/ Glass Vermicelli

Steamed Sea Scallop with Black Bean Sauce is really simple and easy to replicate at home. It’s preferred to use the live scallop for this recipe, you can shuck the scallop and discard the yellowish intenal organ, but you can use the fresh scallop too. First you choose the ‘dry scallop”, dry scallops is  scallop without any additives, while scallops that are treated with sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP) are called “wet scallop”. STPP causes the scallops to absorb moisture prior to the freezing process, thereby getting a better price per unit of weight. It’s easy to diffrenciate dry and wet scallop, the dry scallop is usually got whitish creamy translucent, while the wet scallop is usually got white opaque  color.

The ingredients of black bean sauce for steaming sea scallop is similiar to my Steamed Crab or Steamed Tiger Grouper Fish with Tofu. Basic ingredients for plack bean sauce is  fermented black beans paste, garlic, shallots, lemongrass, ginger, salt and pepper use for the sauce.  Chopped chili added to give a nice hot kicking flavour, besides, you can improved the black bean paste with dried shrimp, dried scallop and other savoury and umami dried seafood ingredients to enrich the flavour. Watch over the saltiness level of the black bean paste since it could be very salty and it’s not necessary to add any salt anymore. This black bean recipe is suits as a dressing  for eeg, tofu, rice porridge or even aubergines. Black bean sauce is actually made of salted and fermented black bean called doucitausi or tauco hitam in Bahasa. Black bean paste is ready to use, it’s available in a glass jar on most asian groceries in your town. My favourite  fermented black bean paste is Lee Kum Kee Brand

 Perfecly cooked steamed sea scallop texture is superb, a combination of  bounchy, crunchy and yet easy to chew. The natural juice is come out and it’s taste superior. Make sure you use the dry scallop for steaming, the wet scallop will be ruined the whole dish with totally chewy and rubbery scallop and  the juice is tasteless. Trust me, since i had to try that.

Szechuan Style Lamb Skewer with Indonesian Peanut Satay Sauce (Resep Sate Kambing Sichuan Bumbu Kacang)

resep sate kambing bumbu kacang szechuan lamb skewer peanut satay indonesia

Satay (/ˈsæteɪ/, /ˈsɑːteɪ/ SAH-tay), or sate, is a dish of seasoned, skewered and grilled meat, served with a sauce.Satay may consist of diced or sliced chicken, goat, mutton, beef, pork, fish, other meats, or tofu; the more authentic version uses skewers from the midrib of the coconut palm frond, although bamboo skewers are often used. These are grilled or barbecued over a wood or charcoal fire, then served with various spicy seasonings.

szechuan peppercorn lamb skewer resep sate kambing

Satay originated in Java, Indonesia. Satay is available almost anywhere in Indonesia, where it has become a national dish.  It is also popular in many other Southeast Asian countries, including Malaysia, Singapore, Brunei, and Thailand, as well as in the Netherlands, as Indonesia is a former Dutch colony.

Basic Szechuan Chili Seasoning !

Satay is a very popular delicacy in Indonesia; Indonesia’s diverse ethnic groups’ culinary arts have produced a wide variety of satays. In Indonesia, satay can be obtained from a travelling satay vendor, from a street-side tent-restaurant, in an upper-class restaurant, or during traditional celebration feasts. In Malaysia, satay is a popular dish—especially during celebrations—and can be found throughout the country. Close analogues are yakitori from Japan, shish kebab from Turkey, shashlik from Caucasus, chuanr from China, and sosatie from South Africa.

Sate Madura , originating on the island of Madura, near Java, is a famous variant among Indonesians. Most often made from mutton or chicken, the recipe’s main characteristic is the black sauce made from Indonesian sweet soy sauce/kecap manis mixed with palm sugar (called gula jawa or “javanese sugar” in Indonesia), garlic, deep fried shallots, peanut paste, petis (a kind of shrimp paste), candlenut/kemiri, and salt. Chicken Madura satay is usually served in peanut sauce, while the mutton Madura satay is usually served in sweet soy sauce. Sate Madura uses thinner chunks of meat than other variants. It is eaten with rice or rice cakes wrapped in banana/coconut leaves (lontong/ketupat). Raw thinly sliced shallot and plain sambal are often served as condiments.

Instead of soy sauce and peanut sauce as a regular marinade for indonesian satay, i fusioned the lamb skewer with the szechuan style seasoning. Lamb meat got a relatively strong gamey flavour, szechuan peppercorn in the marinade get rid the unpleasant aromas. insstead, the numbing sensation when you eat the szechuan peppercorn giving some refreshing burst of flavour within the dish.

Lamb Skewer with Indonesian Szechuan Peppercorn/ Andaliman  :
