2 lemongrass stalks, bruised and sliced into 4 cm lengths
6 young lemon leaves
2 chillis, bruised
1 knob ginger, pounded
300 g sea snails, washed in salted water 3 times
To make the dipping sauce, mix and combine ingredients well.
Place 500 ml (2 cups) water, the lemongrass, lemon leaves, chilli and ginger in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Add the snails, then cook, covered for 5 minutes.
Transfer to a bowl and serve with the dipping sauce.
Washing the sea snails in salty water three times before cooking removes any slime and grit. You should also discard any snails that float to the top when placed in a bowl of water as this is a sure sign that they are no longer alive.
2 eggs 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon ground dried thyme 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
4 cups peanut oil for frying salt to taste 2 cups buttermilk
4 pounds chicken wings, split and tips discarded 3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup crushed saltine crackers
1. Beat the eggs and buttermilk together in a mixing bowl until smooth. Mix in the duck wings, cover, and refrigerate 30 minutes. Combine the flour and crushed crackers with the pepper, thyme, cayenne pepper, salt, and garlic powder in a large mixing bowl.
2. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
3. Remove the duck wings from the buttermilk marinade, and discard the remaining marinade. Allow the excess buttermilk to drip from the wings, then press into the bread crumbs to coat.
4. Cook in batches in the preheated deep-fryer until the breading is golden brown on the outside, and the duck wings are no longer pink at the bone, about 10 minutes per batch. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate, and season to taste with salt before serving
As aborigines shared, the most effective way to catch shrimps is dropping bamboo traps in the edge of water. Therefore, they spend much of their time on making traps and going shrimp fishing to make food.
Making bamboo traps for shrimp catching requires much of workmanship, from choosing materials to wickerwork. Split laths should be made from Neohouzeaua, and then soaked into the river to enhance their toughness. Each lath is about 60cm in length, small and lacquer-drawn, and the distance between the laths shouldnât be too scattered.
The bamboo shrimp traps are created by the skillful hands of aborigines.
However, baits are still necessary to attract shrimps to come inside the trap. Those baits are often savory burned pork skin.
After placing the baits into the trap, the trap is tied to two heavy rocks by rope and dropped into the water so that it is suspended in water surface. They drop about 100 shrimp traps into the river.
Next day, they continue pulling up the traps. After taking out the shrimps, they put other baits into the traps and then throw it again. This procedure is repeated day by day.
After catching shrimps, they started to cook them in a strange way. The materials to cook shrimps include tomatoes, potatoes, chillies, lemons and other seasons. They mixed shrimps with these materials and covered the food by a silver paper. After that, they put this package on charcoal. After around 15 minutes, they took this package out and started to enjoy this tasty dish.
1. Arboriginal Professional jungle chicken
Arborigines has a simple but effective cock trap as follow:
â¢ Choose a firm and 2m length tree branch with good elasticity so that it can be bent or straightened. Tie a string to one end and attach the other end to the ground.
â¢ You need a stick âthat is known as the pin of the trapâ. Tie the string to 2 end of the stick, one end is fixed and the other is movable. That will become a lasso tightening the animal when it fall into the trap.
â¢ Drop the lasso near the ground and hold it by some firm sticks with pins.
â¢ When the chicken fall into the lasso, its reaction will move the stick out of the pin. Thank to the bounce of the tree branch, the string will be tightened so that the prey can not escape.

+ Collect 2 small tree branches, tie parallelly in a tree. The lower branch is tied unstably
+ Below the lower tree branches, use a wire to make a trap to catch the squirrel after falling down from the lower branch.
+ After catching a squirrel, you can reuse the trap again to catch more squirrels.
To process squirrel in the jungle, you can try this way:
+ Find wood around you to set a fire
+ Wash squirrels carefully
+ Put squirrels on fire in some minutes, take them out to deplume
+ Use some small bamboo trunks to skewer squirrels and bake squirrels above charcoal
