Tomyam steam fish


It's time for some sour and spicy dish to whet the palate after consumimg so much sweet meats and high calorie food over the past few weeks ...... 'Tomyam steam fish'




Very basic ingredients - Tomyam paste, bunga kantan, big onion and kaffir leaves ...ooops, forgot to bring in the bird eye chillies for the picture.


Used a generous cut of fish tail end, dressed it up with all the 'paraphernalia', and into the hot pot of boiling water, it goes .................


Transformed -  add a sprinkling of finely chopped kaffir lime leaves.



I like this part very much, the muscles and it's chewy!


You're welcome to join me for dinner ..... quick serve the white rice!

  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 bird eye chillies - chopped

Preparation
  1. Wash the fish tail, make 2 slits about 1.1/2 inches apart across the side of the fish.  Season with some salt and set aside.
  2. Place some onion slice on the base of the plate and put the fish on top.
  3. Mix the tomyam paste with the sugar and water, test for taste and spoon over the fish.
  4. Next, sprinkle on the sliced bunga kantan and chopped bird eye chillies.

    Yes,but then sometimes unknowingly you'll end up with fish that's got a very tough skin and the fish will curl up!

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.
