Steamed Fish Tail with Whole Black Bean (豆豉蒸鱼尾)

“Steamed fish, a healthy choice on your plate.”

There was this gentleman reader requested me to post my recipe of steamed Song fish head with whole black bean some time back.

Yes, I do like steamed fish with whole black bean for its delicate briny flavour. And of course, steamed fish is the heathier choice on the plates.

I used fish tail instead of fish head this time. It’s simply personal preference of more fleshy portion while fish head is definitely good in this recipe, too (I usually use fish head in curry recipe.. smile). read more

“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)”

Fish Fillet in Fried Shallot Oil and Oyster Sauce

“Nice Fried Fish with Fried Shallot Oil and Oyster Sauce”

My inspiration of this recipe came from the popular vegetable dish in Singapore and Malaysia, the blanched vegetable with oil & oyster sauce (油菜). I used the same method, but changed the boiled vegetable to fried fish. Kinda expected the fish dish will turn out good, and it is indeed tasted delicious, fragrant, robust, and appropriately done! I love this fish dish!

This is one of my fish recipes I am proud to share here. Teochew style steamed fish with salted vegetable and Chinese tofu. Taste of this dish is pleasantly good and fragrant. Simple to make and success rate is high, for many beginners in cooking fish.

I used sea bass instead of the usual choice of white Pomfret (My White Pomfret Recipe). Of course, white Pomfret tastes more appropriate with this recipe, but if it is not available, I think sea bass is the best alternative. read more
