During the Deepavali holiday, a friend and her family came over for holiday. A friend of hubby. He went to meet them on Sunday, brought them for breakfast and lunch.
His friend gave us this gift. A pack of snack from wplace. Pepper cashews as it was called but consist of few seeds and nuts.
It was super good and wholesome. Hubby and I mostly snacking on it, and it was addictive! Thank you to hubby's friend for this lovely gift and introducing us to a new snack.
One night, my man brought back this packet of frozen snail (tong fung lo). A gift from a friend, who visited Sabah.
Washed and rinsed few times to wash away any sand from the snails.
I simply boiled it in boiled water with ginger strips, salt, garlic and lemongrass for few minutes.
For dipping, I simply added some minced garlic with light soy sauce and lime juice.
How to eat?? Stand by toothpicks as it could be a hassle to pull the snails out from their shells. Some would be easy; just pull the sharp pointy black part of the snail slowly. And you will get a proper, fully intact flesh.
