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.

Biscoff Butter Cake ~ 牛油蛋糕

The recipe for this Biscoff Butter Cake is similar to my earlier post of Marble Butter Cake, just that I added an extra ingredient which is, crushed Biscoff cookies.    Instead of mixing the crushed cookies into the batter, I just sprinkled them on top of the first layer of batter and then cover with the remaining batter.   This cake is soft and moist with good texture ..... definitely a recipe for keeps!

Salted egg yolk cookies ~ 咸蛋黄酥饼 ~ CNY 2016

Salted egg yolk recipes are getting very popular these days.  There are salted egg yolk with crabs, salted egg yolk with chicken, salted egg yolk with bittergourd and salted egg yolk bun, just to name a few.  Being the inquisitive me, I tried baking the salted egg yolk cookies just to taste what's it like.   It's quite difficult to describe the taste, it's neither totally sweet nor totally savoury, it's a blend of both which makes it unique, yet delicious.


I like the small bits of salted egg yolk in the dough.  I let the dough rest in the refrigerator for more than 2 hours and it was more pliable to handle.
