Marinate the fish fillet with the seasoning, keep aside for a while.  Then arrange them on a bed of soaked rice vermicelli, steam under rapidly boiling water for about 8 mins. and then dinner is ready!

  7. This is a very light, healthy yet very flavourful steamed dish. I am sure these vermicelli would taste really great after absorbing all the juice from the fish.

    Glad you liked it. Dollar for dollar, think the price is ok. Prices of fish have gone up quite a fair bit here too. But if we were to convert, then of course it's expensive.

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!

Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…
