If there is a trader Joes near you- they have amazing potstickers (Great price too, between $2.99-$4.99 per bag depending on flavor.)  They are super yummy!  🙂

@hopefloats:  almond jello is so good. Usually served with lychee I think, and peaches.

I also love the egg custards.

I just consulted my copy of “The Best of Singapore Cooking” by Mrs Leong Yee Soo. Just a warning that I have yet to try this recipe — this book just arrived from Book (It was a recommended book for a mixture of traditional Chinese & Malay recipes.)

1 cup shredded treated jellyfish
1 cup shredded cucumber
1 cup shredded honey-dew melon
1 cup shredded roast duck

1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup ground roasted peanuts
3 tbps toasted sesame seeds

  1. Place shredded ingredients in a large serving plate with green lettuce on the bottom and roast duck on top. Chill in fridge.
  2. Before serving, sprinkle salad with walnuts, peanuts and sesame seeds. Pour sauce over and serve.

4 tbsp apricot jam
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp peanut oil
1 tsp ginger wine (optional)
1 tsp sugar

Green beans saute’d in soy sauce, garlic, and a bit of hoisin sauce (toss in last, its sticky & sugary, might burn).  Easy, yummy side dish!
