  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!

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.

Turmeric chicken (2) ~ 黄 姜 鸡

A lot has been said about the nutrients and health benefits of adding turmeric to our diet.  Not only is turmeric a good source of manganese and iron, it also helps to lower blood triglycerides after a meal.  Moreover it helps to add more colour to a dish as you can see from this Turmeric Chicken dish which I'm sharing with you today.
