  2. Cook the chopped garlic with olive oil, add in the balsamic vinegar and honey. Cook till slightly thickened.
  3. Line a baking try with foil, place the salmon fillet and brush with the glaze.
  4. Bake in preheated oven @ 190 deg C for about 18 mins.  After 9 mins. flip over to the other side, add in more glaze and bake for another 9 mins.
  5. Put the fillet under the grill for another 2 mins.

  4. Your baked salmon looks so delicious...I like to bake fish too instead of frying them. So much cleaner and less oil wasted.

  5. HiCheah, Fresh salmon you have got here!! Its quite hard to get fresh salmon in Ipoh though. Where did you get it from? Btw, it's really a good idea to prepare it using balsamic vinegar. Thanks for sharing :)

    For a change, I used balsamic vinegar instead of lemon. I'm so, so only, still got plenty to learn from other bloggers!

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 :)

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.
