Pan seared Salmon

This is yet another first attempt .... Pan seared Salmon.  I normally bake or grill salmon, but pan seared turned out just as good.
Besides convenience, salmon is an excellent source of high quality protein, rich in antioxidants, high in heart healthy Omega 3 fatty acids, in short, a great source of nutrients for both the young and old alike.




just rub in some sea salt and freshly ground pepper and marinate for about half an  hour





salmon is done when it is opaque on the outside yet slightly translucent in the centre





serve with  Portabello Mushrooms, squeeze in some lemon juice, some lettuce and ....... yummy

  8. Instead of mushroom and garlic, I prepare a sauce made from chopped ginger, garlic, onions, chilli padi, black bean, a pinch of salt and sugar, water and corn flour.

  10. I've never try out salmon before. Heart breaking when looking at the price. Plus neither of my kids nor my hubby like it! However, I still have the catch that my hubby brought home the other day. He went fishing again! He goes fishing almost every week lol. However, your recipe looks really deicious and the salmon also looks perfectly well done.

    Oh yes, the Norwegian salmon is going for 45 ringgit per kg, used to be 35 rgt or thereabout.
    But once in a while, pamper yourself a bit, moreover it has Omega 3. My recipe is very simple, sea salt, black pepper and olive oil. We call it 'cheng tim'.

    Yup, easy job!

Yoghurt Fruitcake

T is the festive season again and the all-time favourite for X'mas is undoubtedly the ubiquitous fruit cake.  This Yoghurt Fruitcake caught my eye when I was browsing through a Food and Travel magazine.  As I've never baked a fruit cake with yoghurt before, I was very eager to try. 

Ma lai Ko ~ 马拉糕

  Whenever we 'yum cha' in a Chinese dim sum restaurant we never fail to order and try their Ma Lai Ko, which is a brown sugar steamed fluffy sponge cake and what most kids would like to have.  I have been looking for a simple recipe to make this Ma Lai Ko.  Some recipes require a fermented starter dough which will result in streaky patterns in the Ma Lai Ko, some will just go with baking powder and sodium bicarbonate but I chance upon this recipe which requires yeast, baking powder and sodium bicarbonate. I made this on a cool, windy, day and was praying that the batter will rest and proof with bubbles after 2  hours and thankfully it did.  I was very pleased when the cake looked good after I opened the lid of my steamer and the taste was superb, not overly sweet and the texture, nice, soft and moist.  I kept the remaining pieces of 'ko' in a container, at room temperature and they stayed nice and moist even on the third day, maybe because the weather was cool and not
