Crispy Salmon Skin ‘Lo Hei’
 酥炸龙袍捞起 | $118 – large
(Dine-in and takeaway at Min Jiang)

 

An ideal choice for those who eschew raw fish, this work of art
by Master Chef Chan Hwan Kee (曾繁基) of Min Jiang is every bit as delightful, with an abundance of fresh, crunchy vegetables such as sweet romaine hearts, yellow frisée, wild arugula, baby radish, purple cabbage, carrots as well as orange peel and jellyfish, along with the star – homemade crispy salmon skin. Enhancing the dish with an addictive crunch, these tasty gems are complemented by fragrant ‘pok chui’ (crispy golden ‘pillows’), ground peanuts, sesame seeds and pine nuts. Adding to the visual feast is a hand drawn adorable monkey grasping a mandarin orange, as an ode to the Year of the Monkey. A homemade tangy-sweet plum-based sauce is used to complete the creation.

Delectable crisp bacon strips as well as deep-fried yam and
potato slivers add an earthy depth of flavour while a dressing made with plum sauce, mixed fruits and white truffle oil lends uniqueness to the dish – especially while tossing – as the incomparable fragrance wafts over the table.

The dish is completed with mesclun greens, shredded red and white carrots, flying fish roe, ‘wasabi ebiko’ (prawn roe), seaweed, French chives, Buddha’s hand citron, jellyfish, pomelo as well as chef’s secret sweet sauce and lime juice.

salt crust with a mallet (Chef recommends adding in a sprightly shout of “Huat ah!” at the same time), then feasting on the delicious treasures within. Pig’s trotter which has been braised for four hours, is wrapped in a salt crust along with Australian 6-head abalones, dried scallops, flower mushrooms and ‘fa cai’ (black moss), before the entire package is baked further for one and a half hours, resulting in a flavourful finish.
