Steamed minced pork with silver fish


When I saw MaryMoh's post on Okra and Anchovies stir-fry, it reminded me of this simple, quick and easy dish that my mum used to whip up for us  ...........Steamed minced pork with silver fish, which we call 'ngan yu chai'.... baby silver fish because of its size.


  

  
These mini anchovies are very sweet and this dish goes very well with rice, excellent when watching TV ...... no bones, just eat and swallow away!

Ingredients
  • 250 gm mince pork
  • 20 gm silver fish
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • Sesame oil
  • Spring onions and coriander for garnishing
  • Pepper
Preparation
  1. Wash the silver fish, drain and mix them together with the minced pork.
  2. Add in salt, cornflour and water, mix till well incorporated.
  3. Steam over rapidly boiling water for about 10 to 15  mins.
  4. Garnish with chopped spring onions and coriander.
  5. Add a dash of pepper and drizzle in some sesame oil.
  6. Add some light soya sauce if desired.

  3. Mmm...very delicious. You remind me of my young days. Sometimes we had steamed pork to go with rice. That's luxury to us. What is silver fish? Never heard of. Actually I love to eat a lot of fish but don't know the names......terrible, right? haha

    Silver fish is from the same family as anchovies, but it's very tiny. Will show the pic. when I make another dish with it.

    Rarely take salted fish nowadays, not too healthy and unhygienic.
