Priced at just below S$10 a can, one can almost afford to eat this anytime. As a substitute for Abalone when I’m low on budget, I would often purchase the Fortune brand Limpets to cook Congee with it. However, my brilliant hubby thought I should try a new XXX brand and ended up disappointed.
The Limpets were teeny-weeny in size, dry and tough; very different from those in the Fortune brand. Hence, I didn’t use much for my congee. Instead decided to keep the rest until I thought of how to “deal” with the rest.
Well, look what I’ve done to the remaining Limpets! I decided to braised it instead, hoping the texture will be better and it did. The Limpets with Spinach was a marvel! Both hubby and my son were so happy to savour the “Abalone” dish.
1 or ½ can of Limpets
1 tbsp Cooking wine
4 -5 tbsp Cornstarch
Dash of Pepper
1-2 tbsp Oyster sauce
1 tsp minced Ginger
½ tsp Soya sauce
1 tsp Sesame oil
2 tsp Extra-virgin Olive Oil
Stock from can of Limpet

Thanks to Ann of Anncoo Journal, I got a new look in My Cooking! There’re lots of Drop-down Menu when you do a search online. But I’ve been hunting for the perfect Drop-down Menu for a while when I found it at Ann’s blog. I emailed her instantly and the lovely talented baker assisted me without any hesitation.
Putting the Categorized Menu is a tedious and long and winding road for me as I’ve about 200 recipes to date. I almost went cross-eyed putting the codes together! Hahaha! But I think it’s well worth the effort as the recipe page is more organized now. Thanks so much for your help, Ann!
Do me a favour, my dearest readers. Please hop over to My Cooking, try out the Drop-down Menu and let me know what you think. Easy to navigate, encounter any hiccups etc? Thanks for taking the time and I really hope you’ll like the new change. See you there!
