Chicken and Cucumber Satay

Nothing goes to waste with Chef Gok Wan’s version of Chicken and Cucumber Satay. The marinade for the chicken is skillfully converted into a rich, creamy dipping sauce that combines the best of East and West. Tenderized chicken flesh is cubed before being alternately threaded with cucumber to give a nice crunch in between mouthful of chargrilled juiciness. When paired with the nutty and flavorful sauce, there’s no wonder why this is “one of the most-cooked dishes in Asia!”

Seafood Laksa

What is Seafood Laksa but a “a one-pot gorgeous and beautiful coconut stock broth served with chili, lemongrass and any other protein you want, plus some vermicelli noodles?” Chef Gok Wan hits our laksa craving spot on with this aromatic and extra spicy noodle soup bowl that’s brimming with omega-3 fatty acids from the salmon. As he puts it, this traditional hawker dish is just “20 minutes to prep, 20 minutes to cook and probably a minute to eat because it’s delicious!”

Chicken Katsu Curry

“When you learn how to make this dish, you will honestly never go out and buy it again because it’s so simple and so beautiful,” enthuses Chef Gok Wan.

Chili and Salt King Prawns

Simply listening to the sizzle of these spiced king prawns will make your mouth water. Prawns are incredibly versatile and easy to cook, and Chef Gok Wan takes it a step further by whipping up a Chili & Salt King Prawns creation that’s “twice-fried and finished in aromatic salt and chili aromatic spices”. Onions, peppers and carrots brighten up the dish and their subtle sweetness blends right in with the sweetness of those big, juicy prawns. The best part? This dish is “hard to get wrong” and is done “in a manner of minutes”.

Canton Beef

Canton Beef is a stir-fry that infuses wok-tossed flavors into chunky sirloin beef, roughly chopped tomatoes, peppers, green onions, water chestnuts and onion. As Chef Gok Wan puts it, that’s basically “all the stuff that’s left in your fridge after a week’s shop.” What better way to use your leftover fresh ingredients than to turn them into a well-seasoned, slightly charred gravy dish that pairs perfectly with steamed white rice?
