Recipe • Steamed Tofu and Prawns with Special Sauce
I was given the opportunity in this collaboration between Dancing Chef™ (Singapore) and Singapore Home Cooks (Facebook).
Using Dancing Chef™ Laksa paste and Hainanese Chicken Rice paste to create dishes other than the usual bowl of laksa and chicken rice.
I’m sharing my first featured dish today as well as the recipe, using Dancing Chef™ Hainanese Chicken Rice paste. This is the base ingredient for the special sauce.
Dancing Chef™ pastes contain no MSG, preservatives or artificial colouring, making them a natural product. And this dish is also suitable for young children, making it a dish for the whole family to enjoy!
