just marinate the fish block with some sea salt, massage in some honey and soy teriyaki marinade and round it off with a generous sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper ...... let it rest for an hour or more



...........the mackerel is so juicy...........



deliciously served with pan fried Portabello Mushrooms, squeeze in some lime,  fresh green salad ........ enjoy!

  4. Hi pegasuslegend
    Try this, very simple and delicious.

    Hi Mary
    Yes,it's great for making fish balls. But I'm very lazy to make fish balls, because we can get ikan tenggiri fish balls from the fishmonger, she sells them at 20 sen per piece, 10 sen size.

    Hi Shirley
    Yes, very simple. Or you can just fry and then drizzle light soya sauce over it, also delicious, very good with rice.

Fantastic Chicken/Chicken in black bean sauce ~ 豆豉鸡

This is a copycat dish from Old Kingdom Chinese restaurant in Surrey Hills, Melbourne.  When we saw 'Fantastic Chicken' dish on the menu, all of us were curious and yes, we agreed to give it a shot.  When the dish was served, there's nothing 'fantastic' about it, it's just chicken fillet fried with black bean sauce.  Nonetheless, it was a delicious and tasty dish to pair with a plate of steaming hot white rice.
