Teow Chew Style Fish Head Steamboat (潮州鱼头炉)

“Cook whatever you like even the famous local delicacies you have been enjoying only dining out!”

Hubby was craving for 鱼头炉 (“Yu Tou Lu” popular local Chinese soup dish, fish head pot), but we weren’t out to our favorite stalls for this. He was not feeling too well to go out for dinner after work.

Not to disappoint him, I was happy to cook it at home. Taste was 80% alike outside stalls, as my soup wasn’t as ‘sweet’ as those since no msg added, but homemade pot had the most abundance of ingredients. That’s we called homemade…

3-in-1 Miso Dish

“New Easy & Nutritious Dinner Dish”

Instant idea to come out with the dish. I had a big portion of Salmon fillet leftover from my son’s cooking as he took only a slice out of the whole fillet for his porridge dinner.

Was pondering a question of cooking our all-time favorite Teriyaki Salmon or not, I had decided to do a new 3-in-1 dish this time. Yea, I always associate Salmon fish with Japanese cuisine naturally, I would not skip in this creation, too. Haha. Use miso paste as the base of the gravy to the dish, I think any dish creation would just never go wrong. :)

Thai-Style Steamed Sea Bass

“Refreshing seafood dish, healthy and appetizing!”

Got the idea of cooking this savory steamed fish in an appetizing and refreshing soup based from my creation of fruits salsa dish a couple of weeks ago.

My initial intention was just to use up the remaining ingredients from the Salsa making, did not expect to turn my steamed fish into such gourmet. The combination of toppings gives the dish a colorful tint as well as adding great refreshing flavor to it!

Remember to also drink the soup, too!

Grilled Halibut with Basil Leaves & Asian Mushroom Sauce

“Grilled fish with Asian mushroom sauce that tingles your taste bud”

This recipe was created for my Christmas dinner in 2010. We had chicken chop the year before, and so, I thought of cooking grilled fish this time. I always have craving for grilled fish fillet recently, but I always cook Chinese meals, if not pasta dishes in normal days. So, this Christmas gave me a good opportunity to explore this grilled fish recipe since I usually cook Western meal for Western festivals as it sounds more appropriate to such celebrations. Further more, grilled fish is much easier to prepare and cook. I wanted a quick cooking for this festive dinner so that I could spare some good time for making my own log cake.
