“Check out what’s good for eating more FISHES! See fresh White Pomfret, the perfect fish for steaming style. Loved by whole family, healthy and delicious dish which never fails to impress your loved ones! Prosperity Pomfret (年年有余)”

I steamed Teochew-style with Sea Bass, but Sea Bass is not the most popular fish type to make an authentic Teochew steam fish. So, I used the genuine fish type this time, the white Pomfret! Teow chew style steamed fish will be cooked together with other sides such as bean curd aka tofu, salted vegetables and tomato, sometimes.

Got the fresh Pomfret from my favourite fish store in the wet market early this morning. Fishes and other sea creatures from this store are always fresh, with reasonable price. I had this medium-sized Pomfret which good for 2-3 person from the fish monger at S$8 after discount rate (Was initially priced $9). More

Curry Clams (咖喱蝲蝲)

“Quick Clams Recipe and Delicious Clams Dish in Curry Flavour!”

Yes, I cooked clams again.

Slightly different kind of clam. The shell is thicker, rounder in shape and darker in colour. This kind of clam is more common in Singapore. This thicker shelled clam is similar to the thinner one I used in my previous post (Chili & Tomato Sauces Clams recipe here), but I find the flesh of this clam is fuller and more juicy. More

Cooking Methods

“Just a brief on ways of cooking”

Blanching – usually used for vegetables or fruits, but nowadays, we used this term to describe on meat, too. Blanching refers to plunge the raw food into boiling salted water, for a quick boil. Then, place the hot food under running water or in cold/ icy water to halt the cooking.

Some cooking need blanched vegetable, to shorten the cooking time, and to retain its natural colour. Blanching helps to enhance not just the colour but taste of some green vegetables such as broccoli. Blanching vegetable has to be followed with halting process in cold water in order to reach its effect. More

Stir-Fried Chili Clams

“Clams, one of the most likeable seafood dishes to be easily cooked at home.”

Clams required little preparation for cooking which made this seafood one of the popular dishes in various cuisines. The fresh clams were decently priced and sold at the wet market and supermarkets, too.  However, they might be seasonal and not so widely available, at times. So, grab them once you see them. It’s not only for the appetite, clams are actually packed with nutrients, mainly iron, Vitamin B12, selenium, manganese, protein. Yes, it’s really great for the brain and skin.

And, liked I mentioned, prepare and cook these clams were simple. Most of the times, we cooked this seafood in pasta dishes and Miso soup. Stir frying with chili was a common way to cook, too. I personally liked chili clams, in gravy kind. Just like the chili crabs which famously known as local delicacies of Singapore and Malaysia. This recipe is not exactly spicy, but more like a blend of chili and tomato flavour mixed in egg drops gravy, and the flavour of this dish was so great that we would usually dip dinner roll, fried or steamed bun (mantou) in its flavoursome leftover gravy. Yummy! More
