Many of us have already received the first half of the government’s consumption vouchers worth $5,000. Have you got a plan for how to spend it yet? This issue of Channel 823 will share some interesting ideas for how our readers can use their consumption vouchers to buy luxurious fresh food from Link’s markets to cook a big feast at home, along with some extraordinary dinner recipes.
Link’s fresh markets are known for their diversity in range of vendors and groceries of good quality. This time, we take the trip to Spot Mart in Tseung Kwan O. Here, not only can you get all the ingredients you need for a fantastic three-dish and one-soup meal, you can also conveniently pay for everything with your consumption vouchers.
Ingredients (Serving 4):
Hot Wok beef is a common dish available in many Chinese restaurants and Hong Kong-style cafes. With the consumption vouchers, we decided to upgrade the recipe by replacing regular beef fillet with Angus beef. Even though they are of different cuts from a cow, Angus beef are well-marbled, juicy and known for their delicate texture. The key to making this dish is to control the heat - avoid overcooking the beef.
Ingredients (Serving 4 to 6)
At Spot Mart, we came across wild-caught lobsters from the South China Sea – “Giant Grouper” lobsters. The vendor was full of praise of these local catches: tasty, tender, and with a chewier texture than the Australian lobsters favored by most Hong Kong people. Fresh E-fu noodles can be bought from shops that specialise in tofu or noodles. For noodles, brightness and shininess usually means freshness. Make sure you get the ones that come in round and full shape and avoid those that appear oily and sticky.
Ingredients (Serving 4)
This famous dish originated from the “dinner-on-a-boat” typhoon shelter restaurants in Hong Kong. The key to making this dish is to use male mud crab. The best ones are those that have all their legs and claws, according to seafood vendors.
Ingredients (Serving 4 to 6):
This soup is rich in nutrients and perfect for the current warm weather. The dried seafood vendor at Spot Mart told us that when it comes to picking greenlit abalone, size and thickness matters. Other than the salty dried conch heads, it is important to add the frozen yellow conch head for its sweetness. Combining the three and we have an exceptionally flavorful and savory soup.
|Australian greenlip abalone||$1,000|
|U.S.A Atlantic frozen yellow conch||$100/unit|
|Dried conch meat||about $150/4 taels|
|1 Chinese silk chicken||$250|
|Dried scallop||$200/4 taels|
|Jinhua ham (heel)||about $90/pack|
|South China Sea Lobster||about $350/catty|
|Mud crab (male)||about $210/catty|
Total cost using consumption voucher: $2,510
Such a sumptuous feast not only includes many high quality and rare ingredients, it also satisfies the entire family’s taste buds while allowing everyone to enjoy the good food without worrying about their health. Most importantly, the whole meal only cost about half the amount of the consumption voucher! Why not head over to your nearest Link fresh market now to hunt for these treasures and treat the family to a lavish yet cost-effective meal!
