Oh my God, I am old! It’s my birthday yesterday, and I’m a year older again. But don’t worry, I won’t grow old another 300 years; I promised myself. I am determined to look like this forever hahaha, oh or maybe I should look 10 years younger. Anyway, nothing exciting happened. The boys have been super busy all week so we decided to celebrate on Saturday, not that it’s important. The way I love to celebrate is probably drowning in a big tub of ice-cream with hot fries on the side. I also want to watch a new horror movie, the Boy.
Summer kills my appetite. I’m seriously not interested in so many of my favorite dishes at the moment. I’m yearning for something simple, minimal and natural. I don’t even want to have cake for my birthday; instead I want a big, whole, chilled watermelon and a bottle of diet coke. Cooking needs to be simple, because I seriously can’t concentrate in the hot kitchen. The only good thing coming out of the summer fever of mine is the motivation to be simple and quick at cooking.
Today I make Spicy Seafood Meatballs for lunch. I save some for Yaseen’s after school snack, and Sadik will like to have it for dinner. There are 5 ingredients in this recipe; I’m not kidding. Well, if you count oil as well, then there are 6 ingredients. It takes about 15 minutes to both prep and cook. And the result is the plateful of oozing hot, spicy seafood meatballs that you can dunk in delicious dips.
Spicy Seafood Meatballs
200 gm kingfish steak
200 gm peeled and deveined prawns
1 tbsp Thai Red Curry Paste
Oil for deep fry
Combine fish and prawns in the chopping board and roughly chop them with a knife. Do not chop them too finely because the little chunks will make the meatballs super juicy.
Transfer the chopped seafood in to the bowl, add Thai Red Curry Paste, egg and flour. Mix well.
Preheat oil in the deep-frying pan. The oil should be medium hot.
Form the bite-sized meatballs in your hands and drop them in hot oil. Add about 4-6 balls at once and do not overcrowd the pan. Fry for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with Thai Sweet Chili Sauce.
