Salted fish with glass noodles ~ 咸鱼粉絲

My blog has taken a back seat for a while and it has now shifted to a new ‘home’.  Yes, a very good friend of mine had tirelessly helped to give my blog a fresh new look.  Here's a short guideline on how to ‘hover’ around my blog.   On the Home page, ‘Subscribe’ is to get email notification, ‘Search’ is to look for any recipe with key words and a click on the ‘menu’ will bring you to ‘Connect’ which is email, facebook, g+ and Pinterest.  And on the individual post, you can click on ‘Share’ and follow my post.

So for today, I’m going to introduce a savoury noodle dish …….. Salted Fish with Glass Noodles.


Fried salted fish with bihoon or rice vermicelli is a common item on the menu of any ''Tai Chau" for home-cooked Chinese dishes.  But here I substituted rice vermicelli with glass noodles.  The glass noodles were given a quick  stir-fry with cabbage, chicken, eggs and not forgetting the Salted Fish.  
Verdict?   Yum!

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. 

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

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.
