Now that CBB is out, my love for cooking has increased exponentially. Why? Because whatever time I spend in the kitchen now is luxury. I mean, I do have some other bit of me-time throughout the day, but those 30-minute sessions alone with my Medela don’t count.
I used to plan menus weekly so I know exactly what to cook, but nowadays plans get thwarted by cries for milk, clean diapers, hugs and comfort. So when I found a tiny pocket of time to cook, I jumped at the chance. With the thick bee hoon I ordered over the weekend, I decided to cook Jason’s favourite XO sauce noodles.
He loves everything with XO sauce, but XO sauce alone is not enough. I always find XO sauce on its own lacking in flavour.. ironic as it may sound, but to me XO sauce tastes quite boring despite its premium ingredients. One secret ingredient I like to add to my XO sauce dishes is crispy shrimp floss. I got mine from Yue Hwa, but you can also use any other shrimp floss or even fish floss. It’s a really good booster to savoury dishes. Try it!
