Steamed fish with radish and dried shrimps ~ 甜菜脯蝦米蒸鱼


Very rarely do I steam black pomfret as I normally like to fry it.  But I was assured by the fish monger that this black pomfret tastes just as good, steamed.  Steaming a whole fish is also a great and quick way to cook and with a vegetable dish on the side, dinner is served in a jiffy.







Recipe for Steamed fish with preserved radish and dried shrimps ~  甜菜脯蝦米蒸鱼

  • 1.1/2 Tbsp preserved sweet radish
  • 1 Tbsp dried shrimps

Topo Map Cake ~ 地图蛋糕

I think it is more appropriate to name this cake just as 'Topo map cake' for the layers in this cake really look like a map.  Layering this cake can be quite challenging as a great deal of patience is required.  But patience and endurance do pay and after the cake is baked and once you sliced it up, you'll be so pleased to see the pretty layers and the colour combination.  Not only does it look awesome, the texture is good too, soft and moist.
