Seafood Pomelo Salad

Who said that pomelo salad is a Thai dish? Today, I made a multi-cultural seafood pomelo salad for my company's no-agenda-lunch. Every month we have three members of the staff volunteer to be the guest chef. In today's NAL, I am one of the chefs.

My pomelo salad is extremely yummy and sold out quickly.

Thai pomelos - three (HK$78)
Japanese dry mini sardines - one pack (HK$38)
Indonesian cooked prawns - one pack (HK$50)

Thai fish sauce - any desirable amount (HK$8)
Thai mini limes - two (HK$12.5)
Hong Kong Cantonese XO sauce - one bottle (free item from my sister)

Glutinous Rice Dumpling 糯米餃

In today's dim sum lunch, this looks interesting. There is glutinous rice inside the dumpling. But I just can tell whether it is Cantonese or Shanghaiese. It's nice anyway.

Dumpling 糉

I missed dumplings in the last Tuen Ng Festival. Today I found it on the restaurant menu, so I ordered it. Actually you can eat dumplings in Hong Kong throughout the year, but more pupularly at Tuen Ng Festival. It is usually served with soy sauce and sugar, just up to your choice.

I have invented this special taste fried rice. I have marinated the chicken cubes with tandoori powder. So my fried rice has a combined Chinese and Indian taste.

Anna's comment: My brother bought me festival dinner. We went to the famous goose restaurant to enjoy roast goose. Cantonese eating roast goose is just like Beijingers eating Beijing Duck. If you happen to visit Hong Kong, don’t forget to try one. You can order one whole goose, half or a regular.
