    Haha... I know! So in that case judge the dish instead on its presentation

    Those were top-notch king prawns, bought from the fishmonger, and very juicy/succulent, tasty and perfectly cooked by Princess Del!

    Gorgeous.... We defo don't eat enough veal in the UK [and can be quite hard to get] - in Tuscany, it's more popular than chicken!

    Marco.
    Yummola! I do love veal (and king prawns too )

    Top notch!

    Nice grub as always.


    Not sure if it’s been mentioned on here before, but i think its worth a shot if it hasn’t.
    And that’s “velveting” meat/prawns.
    Personally i use the cornstarch, egg white and rice vinegar method in water rather than oil and have been doing so for years.
    I tend to eat a lot of stir fry, Tom Yum etc etc and it really does make the difference for a little time spent. The pork, chicken or beef will be so much more juicy and tender.
    I had Fajitas tonight using that method which made me think of mentioning it.
    If you haven’t tried it, then do!
    Theres plenty on t’web about it.
    Enjoy.
