In Hong Kong, there is the tendency to serve lots of imported foods in dishes to make them unique. I try to use local ingredients in my foods, especially seafood as it's live and fresh. I'm not a particular fan of imported chilled/frozen seafood.
I didn't want a Chinese dinner tonight and was looking for ideas on the internet. Seafood marinara... lovely...
I just bought local live clams and live shrimp. Fish , that's imported and I chose salmon, but just because my daughter likes salmon.
Everything else was local except for the anchovies and white wine. The flavours were great and well balanced. Now to see if my young food critic agrees with me.
