Chinese macaroni with shrimps and spam in curry sour crème sauce


Hi there,


Before going on holidays I always try to empty my fridge. This time I made an incredible mix of all ingredients I had. Once I’ve been invited to a dinner by my Chinese colleague. It was really shocking to me that their food can also be so mild. I always though Chinese is spicy and involves a lot of oil processing, especially stir frying in wok. Another thing that really surprised me was the combination of meat and fish. At my culture I’ve never met with such a combination, at least not in one dish. I really liked the idea and tried to use it this time in my kitchen.

Same of you may think that my ingredients look a bit crazy and do not match at all but believe me the taste was great.

On my dish was: Chinese macaroni with shrimps and spam in curry sour crème sauce

Ingredients (for 2 people):
– 200g Chinese macaroni
– 1 zucchini
– 20pcs shrimps
– 1/2 onion
– 100g of Spam (a canned precooked meat product, called in Polish: “mielonka”)
– 1cm ginger
– 1/2 jar of pickled maize
– 1 falafel (it looked like made with rise not chickpeas)
– a bit of chili pepper
– 1tsp. curry
– 50ml crème 15%
– oil to fry

1. Boil macaroni
2. Cut spam/”mielonka” intro small cubes
3. Chop zucchini
4. Chop onion
4. Fry under the lid shrimps, spam/”mielonka”, onion and zucchini until soft consistence (to save time fry all ingredients at same time; if you have more time you can do it in phases and process ingredients separately).
5. Once your ingredients will be almost done, add grated ginger, all spices and crème and fry for 5 minutes (you may noticed I didn’t use any salt; I did it on purpose because spam/”mielonka” is salty by itself).
6. Top macaroni with curry sour crème sauce

Penne with shrimps, zucchini and cabbage


Hi there,

First of all congratulations for all people that got new cord at yesterday’s batizado of Capoeira Luanda, the Netherlands. Thanks to all teachers and students for great input. After intensive days of trainings, workshops, great party and then batizado everyone got exhausted. Some people decided for French fries, pizzas, croquet’s etc. Well, I decided for something else. Firstly, my limit of unhealthy food was exceeded on Saturday eating rich in proteins and fat fast-food, i.e. chicken-corn-stick (I must say it was great) and croquet; not mentioning white “puffed” bread-rolls with “alla McDonald’s plastic cheese”. Secondly, I already had in mind some quick, tasty and easy solution for my dinner.

This time on my dish was: penne with shrimps, zucchini and cabbage

Ingredients (for 1 person):

–          100g penne

–          ½ zucchini

–          Shrimps, around 20 pieces (I have no idea how much does it weight)

–          Garlic, 2 cloves

–          1/3 small spitskool (my dictionary says it is Chinese cabbage- but that’s not true. See attached picture, if someone knows how it’s called, let me know please).

–          1 tbsp. parmesan cheese

–          Oil to fry


  1. Boil penne
  2. Fry shrimps with zucchini cubes and garlic (people say it is better to fry garlic at the end of the frying process but if your veggies are having some water drops- garlic will not burn; the idea was to make it quick- that means put all ingredients together)
  3.  Cut cabbage into 0,5cm slices. Do not process it. You will use it as “decoration” and crispy bonus. (Of course, the dish will be still delicious if you don’t use cabbage. It is just an optional ingredient).
  4. Top with parmesan cheese

Simple, tasty and quick.
