Hannan Ceasar Salad :)


Welcome to Hannan's kitchen!!! Yes, I know there's a lot of chefs out there ( and I know a lot of chefs are reading my blog... AMG, Jun, Ummi, cik bawang... also the big celebrity chef -Norz ), which in this case - I'm so thinking twice about posting this entry, hahaha.. this one may look like a joke to a chef, but who cares rite! hahaha.. I'm pretty free since I'm not going anywhere for this winter break , so let's try something new for a change :) The menu is - ceasar salad , which is of course, my fav appertizer, always order ceasar salad when I go to the restaurant. Some restaurants made a good one and some really make it taste like crap. There are few style of making ceasar salad , but I made this one from Jamie Oliver's recipe (with some adjustment) . Jamie said, instead of using chicken breast, use chicken legs to make taste better. So, I grilled the chicken legs over the bread. Prior to that , put some rosemarie, basil , spinkle of balsamic vineger and extra virgin olive oil , garlic and salt to marinate the chicken legs. The bread is put under the chicken, so when the chicken is cooking, the juice will go into the bread and eventually the bread will turn out as the lovely crunchy crouton which in this case is the salad best fren :) Deeeeeelicious!!!Jamie said, if u want to make salad, never ever use the iceberg salad. Instead, use the lettuce. Just realize that lettuce is actually pretty expensive, cost around rm10 per packet here.. ( or is it cheap??? I dont know) Soak the lettuce into the clean water to remove all the germs and the bacteria cyst! ( salad can be both healthy and lethal) To make the dressing, I use 3 portion of extra virgin olive oil and 1 portion of lime juice ( or lemon juice... either way) plus a bit of salt! By the time I finished with the lettuce and the dressing, the chicken and the bread should be cooked. Take off the bone from the chicken and shred into small pieces... same goes to the crouton. Mix the chicken, crouton , lettuce and the dressing in a big bowl. Use ur fingertips :) Then put a generous portion of the salad into a nice plate and some parmesan cheese on top of it... and waalllaaa .... here u are, Hannan's ceasar salad - it's quick, easy to made , healthy and delicious!!!

Dinner is served :) heheh.. I know this recipe might not be perfect, and I'm pretty sure this is an amateur job. However, it's eatables and nobody is dead from eating my cooking yet ( none that I know) So, to those who are looking for a part time cook for a small family this summer , Give me a call :) I'll try not to poison ur family! hahahaha.. I was just kidding. I just love cooking becoz I just love to eat :) However, when I'm the one who's cooking, I wont eat much. I only eat a lot when other ppl is cooking. I wonder why??? hahahhaa... But, one thing for sure, my mom never let me cook at home even thou she knew that I've been cooking on my own for years. Either she loves me too much or she doesnt trust my cooking yet. I'll just take the first choice, maybe she loved me too much that she wont even let me touch the pan at home ( but the other part of me reckon that she doesnt trust my cooking yet!) So everyone , enjoy ur meal. Bon Appetite!

U have hidden talents, uhh?
This is a simple yet nutritious salad...and u've managed to make it sound so easy to prepare, I bet many out there want to give it a try ~ just to get a taste of what's yr fav. Haha.

Olive oil is so so full of goodness & the extra virgin (though very expensive here) tastes the best. Balsamic vinegar is milder than the ordinary cuka here, so if anyone wants to replace (balsamic-cuka), go easy as a sourish dressing would spoil the whole salad. Oopps, sorry I got carried away.

So, here's a toast to Hannan for his efforts...If there's 'A Flying Doctor', then I would like to propose the title 'A Cooking Doctor' for u!! Congrats...
