Stew Mussels In Light Red Wine Sauce

“Light soupy mussel stew, delicious and healthy”

Not many people like mussel, but this shellfish is very nutritious and low in calorie, in fact.

I liked my mussels to be stirred fried with strong chili and spices usually, but this time, I cooked it light in stew. More on a western style, but I considered it a fusion dish instead. I had it with chili Padi as well. Ha.

Anyway, this recipe yields light soupy dish. The overall flavor was subtle that you almost taste the natural flavor of the mussel flesh as though it’s steamed. So, you should eat the mussel together with its flavorful red wine soup sauce. read more

Apple Salmon Soup

“A soup with natural sweetness that your child would not reject.”

This soup is more for your toddler, but of course, you may cook this for yourself and the other adults, too, if you do not mind sweet tasting soup for lunch.

Healthy, balanced, natural sweetness, yet, flavorsome. Children would be able to finish whole big bowl of soup including the fish and apples as well as other ingredients in it.

It’s an easily assembled soup meal which you may prepare within 20 minutes!

And, don’t forget, this is also your perfect soup during the dieting period. It helps you to lose your inches, too! read more

Steamed Cod Fish with Wolfberry & Ginger

“Cod Fish is especially great to be taken during confinement, if you are breastfeeding your infant. For great taste, for reduced caloric burden, for more milk supply…. for more DHA! “

As what I’ve captioned above, Cod fish is a gen for pregnant women and nursing mums. Confinement dishes were taught by mum, to share her recipes for the benefit of pregnant mummy readers of mine.

I just loved Cod fish even not for the same approach, I loved Cod fish for its non-fishy scent, milky flavour and silky smooth and soft texture mingling in my palate. read more

Salted Egg Yolk Prawns (黄金虾)

“How can you miss the ‘Laughter‘ during this festive season?! Eat ‘Ha‘ (Prawn in Cantonese), and let it smother you with laugther and most of all,… the wealth.”

One of my readers, was checking out salted egg yolk prawns recipe, and I couldn’t remember that I had actually posted the recipe since a while ago (laughing). Oh well, I did tell her about it, just few days back. And this time, I am going to post another version of salted egg yolk prawns, for the healthy you, and all, for this coming Lunar New Year, of course (smile)!

I’ve also create an auspicious dish name for this dish, in Chinese, 黄金炒虾. It simply means stir-fry prawns with ‘gold’. The name emphasizes on the ‘gold‘ this time. Chinese likes good and symbolical things or words relating to gold, wealth, happiness, laughter, good luck, and etc, during the festive. I hope you like the dish and its name. :) read more
