Shrimp tempura tacos


I love tacos and this one features one of my favorite basic ingredients for tacos: shrimps. Battered shrimps. Hell yeah! This is my recipe for this homemade taco-dish:

Shrimp tempura tacos

Ingredients
1/2 lb shrimps
1 egg
cold water
1 cup all-purpose flour
corn starch
vegetable oil/sesame oil
1 avocado, cut in slices
rocket salad or lettuce
2 tbs honey
1 tbs dijon mustard
1/2 to 1 tbs rice wine vinegar
1/2 cup mayonnaise
sriracha sauce
1 lime
maple agave syrup
tortillas
basmati rice

For the batter:
1 cup (240gr) egg+ cold water
1 cup (sifted) all purpose flour

For the dressing of the salad:
2 tbs honey
1 tbs dijon mustard
1/2 to 1 tbs rice wine vinegar

Mayo-sriracha sauce:
1/2 cup mayonnaise
sriracha sauce, depending on how spicy you want it
lime juice from 1 lime
some drops of maple agave syrup

Mix them all together till you have a smooth texture.

Make the basmati rice according to instructions and set aside. Wash the shrimps and sprinkle them with the corn starch. Make the dressing and sriracha sauce and set aside. Make the shrimp batter: beat the egg with the cold water and then add it to the sifted flour. Drop the shrimps in it and make sure every shrimp is covered with batter. Fry the shrimps in a pan with vegetable/sesame oil (10:1) for 2 minutes. Assemble the tacos with this order:): sauce, rice, shrimps, sauce, rocket salad, avocado, salad dressing! Bon Appetit!

Impromptu Profiterole



This is such a great option if you are sort of things in your pantry and you are craving for something sweet for your tooth;) So I came up with this idea of creating a profiterole with only three ingredients and believe me you won't be disappointed. You only need:

1 box of cream puffs (from the freezers dept, I used these)
some kind of dark or semi-sweet chocolate
milk or whipping cream
1 tbs honey
almond flakes

Put the cream puffs in a large bowl, melt completely the chocolate in a pan with the milk/whipping cream and the honey till it forms a nice ganache texture and then drizzle it all over the cream puffs (you decide the portion of melted chocolate you want to put on top of the puffs). Finally, sprinkle a handful of almond flakes to give it that extra crunchy texture.

Dig in and enjoy!

p.s. You can also whip some cream and add some on top! (I had literally run out of that!)

On my radar


Located in London, in one of its finest hotels, this place is definitely one to transfer you back in time. I love the decor, the velvets and the antiques that give it that sense of elegance of the '20s and '30s..Sipping down one (or two or three) of their Golden Age crafted cocktails this venue is one to not surpass.
