Posted by crizlai On May - 20 - 2020

When you think about convenience, Pacific West’s products would be the first brand which come into your mind. Pacific West has become a caring household seafood brand name throughout the Asia Pacific Region, Europe, South Africa, New Zealand and the Middle East.

With Ramadan as the stated theme, all my creations are of curry based, with herbs and spices packed fresh ingredients to make Sahur, Iftar as well as your festive celebration simple, easy to pep up with some slight twists to impress your family members and guests, with recipes included below too.

Pacific West’s products have always been great for convenience to pep up dishes within the shortest time, especially during the holy month of Ramadan, where Muslims would break fast during Sahur and Iftar~ Here a great dish idea – THAI-STYLE SWEET CHILI FISH COCKTAILS WITH CHOO CHEE CURRY~ 🙂

Pacific West’s products are simple to cook, especially when you have some guests around~ It’s as easy as taking them out from the freezer and right into your frying pan~ However, I would always like to impress my guests with something local, right from Penang~ Thus, here’s my tweaked version of BELACAN PANKO COATED SQUID STRIPS WITH SWEET SAMBAL TUMIS DIP~ They could be rather addictive too~ 🙂

As a Penangite, I always appreciate the Nyonya/Peranakan heritage by trying to keep its cuisine alive~ However, time has changed and everyone barely has much time in the kitchen~ Thus, I’ve created something fast and tasty with one of Pacific West’s convenient products~ Now I wished I had cooked more~ 😛 Here’s my TEMPURA PRAWNS IN NYONYA-STYLE CREAMY CURRY WITH WILD BETEL LEAVES~ 🙂

Do check out the latest products by Pacific West at your nearest supermarkets.

This is the first time Potatoes USA with its Malaysian partner, has organized this consumer cooking demonstration workshop in Penang to emphasize on the versatility and health benefits of consuming U.S. potatoes. The workshop was held recently at The Wembley, Penang, with cooking demonstrations by two established Japanese master chefs, namely Chef Yukichi Matsubara and Chef Hideaki Nakajima, whom both have vast experiences in understanding the Malaysians’ taste buds.

The workshop started with Mr. Eddie Saw, Potatoes USA Country Representative, briefing the audience on the background of US Potatoes and their nutritional benefits, which included Vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber. He also clarified on the myth behind the misperception of using potatoes as controversially, potatoes are healthy to consume but it’s the cooking methods and ingredients used that matter most. In fact, potatoes have a more favorable overall nutrient-to-price ratio than many other vegetables and are an important staple worldwide.

The first cooking demonstration was presented by Chef Yukichi Matsubara with 2 recipes, namely U.S. Potato Curry Bun and U.S. Potato Pizza with Gorgonzola.

You can check out his recipes below:

The session of the cooking demonstration was presented by Chef Hideaki Nakajima with 2 recipes as well, namely Nikujaga (Chicken and U.S. Potato Stew) and U.S. Potato Buns with Seafood Sauce, which is basically Pan-Fried Mashed U.S. Potatoes with Prawns & Clams in Gravy.

You can check out his recipes below:

There are actually 5 categories of US Potatoes products offered, namely Fresh/Table-stock Potatoes (Russet Potatoes, White Potatoes, Round Red Potatoes, Yellow Flesh Potatoes, Blue Purple Potatoes, Fingerling Potatoes & Petite Potatoes), Frozen Potatoes (Whole Frozen Baked Potatoes, Frozen Half Shells, Frozen Wedges, Frozen Mashed Potatoes, Individually Quick Frozen aka IQF Shreds, IQF Dices, Frozen Straight Cut Fries, Frozen Crinkle Cut Fries, Loop/Curly Fries, Lattice/Basket Weave Cuts, Tater Drums & IQF Hash Brown Patties), Chipping Potatoes (There are 15 US chip-stock varieties available throughout the year for your potato chip products’ needs), Dehydrated Potatoes (Standard Flakes, Low Peel/Low Leech Potato Flakes, Standard Granules, Mashed Potatoes Mixes, Slices/Dices/Shreds, Granular & Fine Flour) and Seed Potatoes (All seed that is exported also meets U.S. seed potato export standards established by the United States Department of Agriculture). You can see some of the samples and brands as displayed on the table here. These ingredients can be easily bought off the shelves of major retail stores throughout Malaysia.

The attendees were also served with many U.S. Potatoes based dishes during the workshop breaks. One of the notable dishes was the individual serving of the specially concocted Miso Soup, infused with prawn flavor and with added U.S. Potatoes.
