Selena partnered with Betty to demonstrate in the Caring Place Community Kitchen. In this way, the participants will not feel too pressured to come out with two dishes at a meeting.
Selena made a finger food called the Oyster Jade Boat. This is a great finger food which can be served on Japanese cucumber, celery or iceberg lettuce or any kind of vegetable which can be eaten raw and has the shape which can hold some filings.
The Japanese cucumber which was used here gives this finger food a very nice crunch. This dish is perfectly name as the green in the cucumber is as green as a piece of jade and its shape is like a boat.
- 8 Japanese cucumbers
- 3 dried shiitake mushroom, reconstituted
- 3 button mushrooms
- 1/2 carrot
- 2 pieces of savoury pressed tofu
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1/3 lb ground pork
- 2 tablespoons rice wine
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 3 tablespoons oyster sauce
- white pepper
- tomato and cilantro for garnishing
If you would like to serve this as a vegetarian dish, omit the pork and use vegetarian oyster sauce instead.
