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.

White Bihoon/Rice vermicelli ~ 白米粉

I was introduced to White Bihoon on my recent trip to Singapore and must admit that I have never heard of this before.  Back here, we have Hokkien fried bihoon which is brownish in colour or Cantonese braised bihoon which is bihoon deep fried and coated with an eggy sauce of meat, seafood and vegetables.  I was curious and I had my first taste of this popular White Bihoon at Jewel, Changi airport.  It's white, because no light or dark soya sauce was added to the bihoon, hence it's white.  It does tastes good with a light squeeze of calamansi. So, today I'm trying to replicate this dish and here's my version of White Bihoon.  Enjoy!
