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.

Cherry Loaf Cake ~ 樱桃蛋糕

I baked this old-fashioned Cherry Loaf using the Marble Butter cake recipe but adjusted the recipe as I only used three eggs instead of four to fit into the loaf pan.   I remember that when I was little, I was attracted by the red cherries as any other kid and would gingerly take them out and eat them first.    The cake was secondary.  This cake is soft and moist infused with the sweet glace cherries giving it a lovely combination of flavours.
