We just love cooking traditional Hongkongese cuisine at home. In this article we are going to share our airfrying version of making Chinese fried squab.
Normally when you have this dish at a dai pai dong, the way they make it is more complicated. This time we adopted an easy way to make it so even at home there is no difficulty in preparing this mouth watering dish.
氣炸乳鴿 Air Fried Squab
It just tasted very similar to the dai pai dong version. Together with the fact that it’s very easy to make, we really recommend readers to try making this dish
Ingredients are simple. Just 2 squabs bought from frozen meat store and marinade
first wash the squabs thoroughly
Trim the calf, the bottom and remove organs if any
Wipe dry it
Now we mix the marinade.
1tbsp of light soy sauce, dark soy sauce and Shaoxine wine
1tsp of salt, sugar and 5-spice
Apply marinade evenly on the squabs
Let it marinate for 3 hours
Then we could put them into airfryer. First set 180°C for 15 mins
It looks bigger right after airfrying
Flip the squabs and set 180°C again for 5 mins. Done!
Before serving, chop each squab into 4 pieces. Bon appetit!
