Salted Egg Yolk Sotong – 咸蛋黄苏东

Everyone loves salted egg yolk; we pair it with fried sotong rings which can be coated with light crispy batter along with rich and creamy salted egg yolk sauce made with butter chilli padi and curry leaves! A great snack for any party or dinner table, you can even make more of the sauce and dip with fried mantou!

We used Borges extra light olive oil. It is light in taste and also great for frying at high temperatures. It’s great for chips, nuggets, food bundles and much more besides. And you can always recycle the olive oil and use it again another time.
