Clauncher Nasi Goreng

Clauncher is a crustacean Pokémon that resembles a bright blue shrimp. One claw forms a single, sharp point and the other is much larger and forms a more traditional pincer with a tiny yellow claw. Each front claw has a black stripe across the top. It has a pair of yellow antennae on top of its head, yellow eyes, and three pointed mandibles.

Clauncher’s large claw gives it a poor sense of balance and makes it difficult to swim straight. Instead, it moves my firing compressed water from this claw. This is achieved through controlled expulsions of internal gas. Additionally, it uses this ability to shoot down flying prey and can shatter rock at close range. Occasionally, its claws will fall off and it keeps a low profile until they grow back. The meat inside its claws is said to be delicious.

Ingredients

150g Basmati Rice
0.5 Cucumber (thinly sliced)
5-10 Cherry Tomatoes (halved)
2 Shallots (finely sliced)
200g Cooked Prawns
1 Carrot (diced)
1 Egg
1 tsp Parsley (chopped)
90g Nasi Goreng Paste
1 tbsp Sugar
2 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
1 tbsp Lime Juice
1 tbsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
2 tbsp Light Soy Sauce

I wanted to make a dish with prawns for Clauncher as that is what the Pokemon is based upon and though Nasi Goreng, a popular Malaysian dish, would be a good choice.

When playing through Pokemon X for the first time, I initially trained up my Clauncher to become Clawitzer, however it later got replaced by another Pokemon. It was an interesting Pokemon on my team however it’s sole water type meant I was searching for other Pokemon with Dual types for a better matchup against gym leaders.

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1
Boil the rice for 8-10 minutes in a saucepan. Once cooked, drain and rinse with cold water. Meanwhile mix the white wine vinegar, sugar, parsley and red pepper flakes in a bowl, then stir in the sliced cucumber and cherry tomatoes.
Step 2
In a wok fry the shallots for 3 minutes until golden. Add the carrot and prawns and stir for 4 minutes. Add the Nasi Goreng paste and stir fry for 2 extra minutes.
Step 3
Push the mixture to the side of the wok and crack the egg into the space. Scramble it until almost done then stir into the mixture. Mix in the cooked rice and fry for 2 minutes then add half the soy sauce.
Step 4
Serve the rice in bowls with the pickled cucumber and tomatoes to the side. Drizzle over the remaining soy sauce and serve.
