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.

  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.

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. 

Overnight Almond Orange Muffins ~ 隔夜杏仁橘玛芬

  I stumbled upon this post on how to achieve "Tall Bakery Style Muffins'' from 'Handletheheat' blog which aroused my curiosity and I was very eager to give it a try.  The batter is chilled for a few hours or overnight and can be baked straightaway.   Thus the muffins can be baked in a jiffy and you can serve warm freshly baked muffins for breakfast.  Yes, I noticed that the muffins rose fairly high and they were fluffy and moist.

Double Boiled Herbal Chicken Soup

Double boiling is slow cooking ........ means to put a soup pot or any covered ceramic or steel pot inside a bigger pot, immerse in boiling water, and let the soup cook at a lower temperature.  Hence the soup is cooked from heat generated from the boiling water and not from direct heat source. Double boiling lets the soup ingredients slowly release their nutrients into the soup, thus making it tasty and wholesome.  It's a long cooking process, roughly averaging 2 to 4 hours.  The tip is not to open the cover to check on the soup as it'll bring down the temperature and affect the cooking process.  The plus point is there's little evaporation and the soup will not boil over.  The only thing is to monitor that there's enough water in the bigger pot and not let it run dry.  Of course, nowadays, the slow cooker is another alternative to double boiling, saves the hassle of checking the water level.
