Chinese New Year Caviar Delight

how to make chinese new year caviar delights
It was the last day of the term break for Chinese New Year and I wanted to create something for my students this festive occasion. Since it’s CNY and the craze is Bak Kwa, I decided to use this as one of the ingredients. #BakKwa is Chinese version of the Jerky. Since I've an Indonesian who's a Muslim, I'd to omit the meat in her appetizer. Prices of these salty-sweet meats soar to sky high during this period, with people queuing as many as 3 hrs above at the popular joints.

I let my imagination run wild and another of my crazy East-meets-West idea soon formed. Will Bak Kwa and Caviar go together? What other ingredients should I combine with to blend the taste?

There’s no better occasion to introduce Caviar to my students; I know majority have not tried the luxury delicacy. Many of them are foreign students, from M’sia, China, Thailand, Indonesia; with just a handful from S’pore. I decided to play host and treat them to these Caviar Delights to celebrate the important event.

Mangoes, Crabsticks, Edamame (popular Japanese soy beans) and Eggs were the accompaniments in this recipe. When the final product was out, it was better than expected. The Caviar and Bak Kwa did complement each other and my pampered son cleaned up the entire Caviar Parfait! But at the eleventh hour, I decided to throw in some Edamame which I’d bought during my Chinese New Year Shopping At Woodlands Loop. Nice!

After preparing 21 cups to chill in the fridge, I kept my fingers crossed, not knowing what the response will be like.

At class, I distributed the Caviar Delight. During break, I saw my students beaming with laughter and smiles after trying my new creation. “Very nice!” they commended. They like it; most have not tried the expensive Caviar. They added that the combinations of other ingredients are good and they wanted more. I was very contented with the outcome.

The nite before class, I roped in the help of my son to stick these CNY stickers onto the lids of the containers. 财 (Cai) means wealth in Chinese. With this, I wish everyone here a Happy and Properous Chinese New Year!
