Made this for dinner recently ......... Pan seared Mackerel aka Ikan Tenggiri with Teriyaki marinade.  In Cantonese, this is called 'Kau Yu'.  Very simple and quick to make, with a minimum of ingredients and olive oil  resulting in a healthy, light and nourishing meal.





just marinate the fish block with some sea salt, massage in some honey and soy teriyaki marinade and round it off with a generous sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper ...... let it rest for an hour or more



...........the mackerel is so juicy...........



deliciously served with pan fried Portabello Mushrooms, squeeze in some lime,  fresh green salad ........ enjoy!

  4. Hi pegasuslegend
    Try this, very simple and delicious.

    Hi Mary
    Yes,it's great for making fish balls. But I'm very lazy to make fish balls, because we can get ikan tenggiri fish balls from the fishmonger, she sells them at 20 sen per piece, 10 sen size.

    Hi Shirley
    Yes, very simple. Or you can just fry and then drizzle light soya sauce over it, also delicious, very good 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 :)
