  4. Your baked salmon looks so delicious...I like to bake fish too instead of frying them. So much cleaner and less oil wasted.

  5. HiCheah, Fresh salmon you have got here!! Its quite hard to get fresh salmon in Ipoh though. Where did you get it from? Btw, it's really a good idea to prepare it using balsamic vinegar. Thanks for sharing :)

    For a change, I used balsamic vinegar instead of lemon. I'm so, so only, still got plenty to learn from other bloggers!

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!
