Braised Seafood and Vegetables with Rice

I love dishes with a rich, thick sauce packed with flavour from the ingredients after you stew them. For me, this is a perfect combination with plain boiled rice. Unlike some other cultures, which prefers flavoured rice, we usually have plain boiled rice. Therefore, the sauce is a very important element in our dishes. We can mix this sauce with plain rice. My favourite braised dish is sliced beef and egg with rice, the beef and egg are so tender but full of flavour. Yesterday, I wanted to have a similar dish and found some frozen mixed seafood in the freezer, so I quickly went the Tesco nearby and grabbed some mixed vegetables, the Braised Seafood and Vegetables with Rice is quick and easy to make! The rich and thick sauce from the dish is from the large amount of water-corn starch mixture. I made it at the ratio of 2:1 which gives the right consistency. Feel free to use any other ingredients you may like. This is super simple and easy dish to make.

Seafood Spaghetti with Pesto Sauce

I love using the pesto sauce for pasta dishes.  Mr Camel used to buy ready-made pesto sauce. Last week, I decided to make it from scratch myself. It turned out to be very easy to make! There are only three ingredients needed, plus a blender to mix everything together. Alternatively, you can use a pastel and mortar which will just yield a coarser result. Unfortunately, I did not take photos when I made the sauce. Nonetheless, this is super easy and delicious sauce, so when I make it again I shall put the photos up here. Until then, this is the recipe for seafood spaghetti with pesto sauce.
