Steamed Fish fillet with Rice vermicelli





When I saw Anncoo's  post on 'Steamed prawns with vermicelli' some time ago,  I told myself that I must make something like this.  So, I tweaked it a bit and managed to come up with this  ....... 'Steamed Fish fillet with Rice Vermicelli'.



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!






A nutritious and  healthy one dish meal enough for 3 servings ........ serve with some chopped chilly and Enjoy!

  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.

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
