[原創食譜 Original Recipe] 自製小食篇 - 日式燒帆立貝小食 (HOMEMADE SNACK – Japanese Flavoured Scallops dried snacks)

 

這個小食,作者很喜歡,但現在卻貴得駭人,九十多元才一小包,只是得大約7-8粒,所以十多年也沒有再吃過,可能作者比較窮吧,真的不捨得買來吃。

I love this Japanese snack very much since I tasted it first time, however, it’s very expensive nowadays, HK$90 only got 7-8 pcs per pack, so I haven’t been eaten this for more than 10 years, maybe I’m poor, I don’t want to waste money for such an expensive snack.

 

最近見急凍北海道熟帶子在超市大特價,作者大膽地買回來試做這個小食,希望重拾這味道。讀者可以買生的也可以,但先用鹽水汆水一會,不然就很容易散開的。

Recently, I found the cooked Hokkaido scallop on sale, so I bought one pack and wanna try to make this and get it back to my life.  You can also buy raw one, but you have to boil it using salted water for a while first, otherwise, it will be broken apart.

 

另外,在這聲明,如讀者用一般風乾機,不是用作者的紅外線風乾機,請不要動手做這小食,這基於食物安全問題,因為一般風乾機是沒有消毒細菌的功能,所以為自身安全為上,不要試圖去做。

On the other hand, If you are not using NIR dehydrator, only using normal dehydrator, please don’t make this snack, this according to food and hygiene regulations, since NIR dehydrator only can kill the surface of bacteria and microogranism, but normal dehydrator cannot do so, please don’t try to kill yourself.

 

材料 (Ingredients) :

 

帶子 (cooked/raw scallops) – 1 包 (1 pack)

 

牛油 (butter) – 30g

 

日本豉油 (Japanese Soy Sauce) – 2杯 (2 cups)

 

味琳 (Mirin) – 2湯匙 (2 tablespoons)

 

日本清酒 (Sake) – 2 湯匙 (2 tablespoons)

 

糖 (sugar) – 1湯匙 (1 tablespoon)

 

水 (water) – 200ml+200ml

 

蜜糖 (honey) – 1湯匙 (1 tablespoon)

 

生粉 (any kind of starch powder) – 3湯匙 (3 tablespoons)

 

做法  (Method):

 

1. 清洗帶子,除去帶子的肝臟及腸,用廚房紙印乾水份 (如果讀者怕麻煩,可以買來沒有帶子裙(光身)那款,那就可以跳過這步驟)
Clean the scallops, tear off  liver carefully,pat dry it using paper/towel (if you don’t want to do this step, you can buy some raw one without liver)

 

2. 準備一個小鍋,下牛油,加入帶子後,快速翻兩邊,不需要煎,只是讓帶子吸味
Prepare a small pot, put some butter and let it melt, then put in scallops, but don’t grill it, just flip it two sides quickly, let it absorb the fragrance only

 

3. 立即加入清酒,然後再倒入日本豉油、味琳、水及糖,試味
Add in sake quickly, let it absorb a while, then add Japanese soy sauce, mirin, water and sugar, and taste it first

 

4. 記得久不久翻兩邊,煮5分鐘,盛起,放涼一會
Let it cook for 5 minutes and don’t forget to flip it over in between, then take out and put aside

 

5. 繼續煮調味汁,加入生粉水,煮至調味汁杰身,再放涼一會
Continue to cook the sauce, add starch powder until the sauce between thicken, and let it cool down a bit

 

6. 準備風乾機盤,鋪上牛油紙,把帶子醮上調味醬後,塗上蜜糖,再小心地加上一點點調味醬
Prepare dehydrating tray, put on the baking paper, dip the scallops into the sauce, and put it in the tray, then glaze some honey and put some sauce on the top

 

7. 開solar mode, 風乾至帶子乾身就可以了。
Set the dehydrator on solar mode, let it dehydrate until dry.

 

Tips : 1. 想風乾得靚身,久不久翻轉,及差不多完成時再塗上蜜糖,就可以做到有光澤
If you wanna make it looks shiny outside, you can flip it over some time and glaze some honey on top.

2. 想食辣味,可以在煮調味汁時加入辣椒碎就可以了。
If you love spicy flavour, just add some chopped chilli while cooking the sauce

3. 可以做原味,但一樣先用牛油煮兩邊及塗上蜜糖。
You can also make original flavour, but still have to cook with butter and glaze some honey on the top.
