炸芋蝦

中國人過農曆新年有一個傳統, 於年尾臨近新年將至的日子,會由家中長輩開油鍋炸一些賀年食物,如煎堆、油角、茶泡等,取其家肥屋潤,金銀滿屋之意。而其中一款炸物 “炸芋蝦” 相信很多人都會喜歡的,在以前製作芋蝦很多人是採取手切方式,工序上會是比較繁複及花時間,但因現在有一些刨絲的工具幫忙,所以可大大減輕及縮短製作時間,而製作芋蝦材料非常簡單,但有幾個要點須留意的是: 1 . 芋頭須選取輕身而粉質多之荔莆芋 2 . 須橫紋刨絲,留意不要順紋,因橫紋會比較鬆化些 3 . 芋頭刨絲後須用筷子鬆開,鋪放於一大托盤上,這樣可使芋絲略為吹乾身4 . 酒須平均噴灑入 5. 加入之糯米粉不能過多,太多會使芋絲黏結難以鬆開 6. 炸籬須與油一起加熱透才放入芋絲, 這樣芋絲才不會黏著炸籬難以脫離 7 . 五香粉與芋頭非常配合,如喜歡可加入少許,但因它比較搶火,須留意芋絲有可能未炸透便呈太深色。只要留心以上幾點,相信一定能得心應手。在此僅向大家拜個早年,祝身體健康,萬事如意!

Preparation: 10 minutes

Cooking: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

250g taro

1/8 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp sugar

white sesame seeds

1 tsp Chinese rice wine (double distilled) or Japanese cooking sake

coriander ( leaves only, wash and dry with towel)

1/2 tsp chicken powder

2 tsp glutinous rice flour

Oil for deep frying

Method:

  1. Wash and dry taro thoroughly, then peel and grate taro at right angle to the grain into fine strips, spread  them in a tray for little while to dry.
  2. Sprinkle taro strips with Chinese rice wine or Japanese cooking sake evenly, then mix with white sesame seeds.
  3. Mix baking soda, salt, sugar, chicken powder and glutinous rice flour together. Then sprinkle taro strips with the mixture and mix them well, finally add coriander leaves.
  4. Heat oil and draining ladle (the tiny one that usually use for Chinese hot pot) to 150°C until the draining ladle is heated thoroughly (this prevents the taro strips from sticking to the ladle in next step).
  5. Place a small portion of  the taro mixture in the ladle each time, deep-fry until crispy and golden brown. Remove from oil and drain on paper towel.
