First the hot peppery king prawns, now proceeding with an ongoing series of some of our favourite spicy chilli inspired dishes, make way for the salt and chilli squid. A traditionally Hong Kong style concoction, but inspired with the twist of Hunan spice, this salty chilli seafood dish has a mix of eclectic and traditional flavour. At Naturally Chinese, we use a potato starch (gluten free) which brings a new twist onto a typical tempura or deep fried style dish. Red chili peppers, roasted garlic and green onion make the perfect complement taste and sight wise.It creates a fluffy, soft crunch and a delectable aroma perfect as an appetizer to share, or even a starter for one.
Our szechuan style chicken or king prawn dish is the perfect concoction of sichuan pepper with spring onions, red chillies and a delicious sauce to bring comfort as well as robust vitality to the heart. Sichuan pepper is also known as Chinese coriander. Grown abundantly in the Sichuan region of China, its literal meaning is the flower pepper. The hull of the seed is often used for medicinal purposes. It is curious to note that it has hints of citrus that gives it a complex flavour like no other chilli pepper.
For a scintillating pairing of spice, add one of our greens and steamed rice to your meal –there’s nothing quite like it. Stay tuned for future posts that will talk more about our ingredients and how we are continuously working to fine tune our burst of flavours.
