Recipe for Simple and Easy Steam Fish

Ingredients :
  • 1 piece Garoupa Fish Block, about 300 gm
  • 1 medium  size Tomatoe - cut into wedges
  • 1 piece Bean Curd - sliced
  • 2 dried Shitake Mushrooms, soaked and sliced
  • 10 gm Ginger - chopped
Seasoning :
  • 1 Tablespoon Light Soya Sauce
  • 1/2 Teasp. Salt
  • 1/4 Teasp. Pepper
  • 1/8 Teasp. Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup water
Garnishing :
  • 1 Tablespoon Shaoxing wine
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • Spring Onions - cut
  • A dash of Pepper
Method :
1.  Place the seasoned fish block on a plate, add in the tomatoes, bean curd, mushrooms and chopped ginger.
2.  Steam the fish in a steamer of rapid hot boiling water, for about 8 minutes.  Pierce the centre of the fish  block with a chopstick and if it can be pierced through, then it's done.  Do not overcook this dish.  Overcooked fish does not taste nice, a bit rough.  Switch off the fire.
3.  Before taking out the dish, add in the Shaoxing wine, olive oil, spring onions and a dash of pepper.
4.  Serve hot with rice.

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)
