Dish title: Asian surf and Turf

The challenge was to collect ingredients from local market and create a dish that best represented us. As a chef I am an obsessive over planner but I decided to have a bit of fun with this challenge and let inspiration meet creativity. Instead of overthinking, I just walked around the market picking ingredients that looked fresh and amazing. If the hawker was friendly and smiling, I took it as an omen and had a look at what they were selling. First I was sold the best piece of pork in Singapore (according to Uncle) and then some large prawns by a very happy and smiley fish monger. This would be the basis for my dish. I roamed around the market and picked out a few more ingredients to create my dish. " Asian surf and turf" . Quite fitting as again it is a popular North American dish with an Asian twist...and I surf.

Some ingredientnats that I used - Soy, chili, and lemongrass marinated Pork, buttered King prawns, Broccolini and oyster mushrooms, coconut lime leaf sweet potato puree, yellow gravy (poached egg)
