This week's Featured Food Friday player is...

Ms. Iska who owns the site, with her blog post: Saucy Pan-Fried Crispy Chicken Wings Adobo

Yummmy..and can we have some of those for dinner? Am sure that's what my youngest would say when he sees that shot. Cooking the chicken adobo-style then frying it is a wonderful idea! You can just imagine all the flavors that has seeped in...And if you want to see more yummy recipes (and shots!) then I encourage you to check out Ms. Iska's site!

My post for this week is: Banana Bud/Blossom in Coconut Milk (with Shiitake Mushrooms).


  • one whole banana bud/blossom
  • several dried shiitake mushrooms
  • coconut milk (pure and diluted)
  • water, salt, onions, ginger, chili, fish sauce

banana bud/blossom cut thinly then mixed with salt and pressed to remove the sap; mushrooms soaked in water


  • Slice the banana blossoms thinly (except the thick top ... discard that part) then add coarse salt. Press together to release the liquid/sap from the sliced blossoms. It will turn brown. Remove the liquid and discard. Set the banana blossoms aside.
  • Place around two cups diluted coconut milk on pot, together with crushed ginger, chili, and sliced onions. Add the banana blossoms and sliced mushrooms; let boil. Simmer for around twenty-five minutes (or more) until tender. Add water if needed.
  • When both the mushrooms and banana blossoms are tender, add around a cup of pure coconut milk. Again, simmer for around five minutes (this is the part where you may adjust the seasonings: salt or fish sauce) then turn off the heat.
  • Serve hot.

Had that together with fried salted fish (boneless dangit) and steamed rice. I ate a lot of rice that lunch. :D

I notice I seem to be eating/posting food with coconut milk these past few weeks. Not to worry, next week am sure there will be NO coconut milk! lol. Thanks so much for playing, everyone!
