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!

Hup Toh Soh (Chinese Walnut Biscuits) ~ CNY 2020 核桃酥

These Hup Toh Soh (Chinese Walnut Biscuits) are without hup toh/walnuts.  I do remember from young that the traditional Hup Toh Soh that I ate those days were quite big, around 4 inches in diameter or because I was small and to me everything looked big!  They were made with lard and were very crunchy but there wasn't any trace of hup toh in them and nobody asked why.   Although these biscuits are without walnuts, they are still crunchy and yummy.  If you are allergic to nuts, this is a recipe for you.  Give this a try for the coming Chinese New Year.
However, if you would like to have a recipe of  Hup Toh Soh with walnuts, do hop in 'here'.
