[EN]  Happy New Year!

    Since this is my first blog post for this year I told to myself is time for something new, something you only do once, so this is how I came up with a culinary post. I am not a passionate cook, but from time to time I have to prepare a meal for my family (especially for my daughter, she eats everything, even paper and wood if I'll serve them). I don't know about you, but I do this from some sense of responsibility and zero passion. And since I am not an excellent cook I am not a gourmand either... maybe this is the reason for my lack of enthusiasm in the kitchen!

    So this being said let me present you my recipe for  shrimps and rice with pineapple and coconut milk:

Ingredients: 40 shrimps, 200 ml coconut milk, one cup of rice, one can of pineapple slices in juice, flour, one or two eggs, panko, olive oil, salt.

Ingrediente: 40 de creveti, 200 ml lapte de cocos, o cana de orez, o conserva de ananas feliat, faina, unul sau doua oua, panko, ulei de masline, sare.

Lets get is started :

Sa incepem:

I have here 40 shrimps. First of all I get them washed.
Am aici 40 de creveti prefierti spalati.

I am going to use the flour, eggs and panko for frying some of the shrimps. You can use breadcrumbs instead of panko, but if you like it crunchier, use panko.

O sa folosesc faina, ouale si panko pentru a preapra crevetii pane. Poti folosi in loc de panko si pesmet, dar daca iti place paneul mai crocant atunci iti recmand panko.

I have here 200 ml of coconut milk, you can find it in every supermarket.

Am varsat intr-un pahar 200 de ml de lapte de cocos pe care il gasiti in supermarket la raionul cu produse orientale.

Here are my washed shrimps. Now it's time for the messier job: shrimp should be decorticate.

Dupa ce am spalat crevetii este timpul pentru cea mai neplacuta operatiune a preparatului. Crevetii trebuie decorticati

You can do the first one for example...

Poti sa-l faci pe primul ca exemplu...

And let your lover to handle the other 39 :) !

Si sa-l rogi pe iubitul tai sa-i curate pe ceilalti 39 :) !

In the mean while you can take care of the rice. Wash it first. And now follow my lead: one cup (200 ml) of rice, one cup of coconut milk, the pineapple and the pineapple juice and two cups of water.

Intre timp poti sa te ocupi de orez. Mai intai il speli. Acum urmeaza-mi instructiunile: versi intr-o cratita o cana de orez, o cana de lapte de cocos, conserva de ananas cu suc cu tot si doua cani de apa.

In the end it should look like this (trust me, it would get better).

In final ar trebui sa arate asa amestecul.

Put in the oven for 45 minutes and 170 Celsius degrees.

Pune cratita in cuptor pentru 45 de minute la 170 de grade Celsius.

Let's get back to our shrimps... Work in progress... We'll be back soon.

Sa ne intoarcem la creveti... Mai dam o mana de ajutor...

After 45 minutes take out the rice from the oven and put it away.

Dupa 45 de minute scoatem orezul din cuptor si il punem de-o parte.

Let's start the shrimps job. I think you are all familiar with hoe to prepare something for frying: flour, egg, panko, hot pan. So let's start, he have a lot of shrimps to fry!

Hai sa ne ocupam de creveti. Cred ca stiti cum se fac preparatele pane: faina, ou, panko, tigaie incinsa. Deci sa incepem, avem o gramada de creveti de prajit!

See below how your shrimps should look like before throwing them in to the frying pan.

Mai jos vedeti cum ar trebui sa arate crevetii inainte de-ai arunca in tigaie.

Now let the frying begin. I am not sure how much you should fry the shrimps in hot oil... maybe one minute or so... I usually fry them until the turn white.
a inceapa prajitul. Nu stiu exact pentru cat timp trebuie prajiti crevetii... poate un minut, un minut si ceva... Eu ii las de obicei pana se fac albi.

After a lot of work :) this is how my plates look like!
Dupa multa munca :) asa ar trebui sa arate farfuria!

Bon appetite!

Pofta buna!

[RO]  La multi ani!

    Din moment ce aceasta este prima mea postare anul acesta mi-am propus sa incep anul cu ceva nou si deosebit pentru mine. Ceva ce nu o sa vedeti prea des pe aici. Asa ca astazi va present o reteta culinara. Eu nu sunt un bucatar pasionat sau talentat, dar din cand in cad mai pregatesc masa pentru familia mea, mai ales pentru cea mica care mananca una-n-truna tot ce prinde in mana.

    Nu stiu voi, dar eu gatesc dintr-un simt de responsabilitate si obligatie si nu gasesc nici cea mai mica placere sau satisfactie cand imi este apreciata mancarea (mi se pare prea multa munca pentru prea putina satisfactie).

    Dar astea fiind spuse, va prezint mai sus una dintre retetele mele preferate. Creveti cu orez cu lapte de cocos si ananas, sau cum ar spune fiica mea "ghegheti cu orez".
