Homemade Lemon Fish

“Delicious lemon fish cooked from scratch, with my homemade lemon sauce.”

Suddenly had this craving for sweet and sourish flavoured dish for dinner. I missed lemon fish, but find that the lemon fish from outside stores was tasted too sweet. So, I yearned to cook my own lemon fish! To curb my craving for it. A very satisfying one, I had it, for my family who loved this dish as well.

Lemon fish is an adaption of the popular Asian style lemon chicken. Cooking lemon fish dish is not a difficult chore. We can always get instant lemon sauce packets off the shelves, but it won’t really save your bucks by using these pre packs.

Fried Mock Fish Fillet in Savoury Pineapple Sauce

“Eating vegetarian meal can be so interestingly delicious!”

Yesterday, 19th of Lunar September, the day of Guan Yin’s (in Sanskrit words: Avalokiteshvara; Chinese words: 观音) Renunciation, considered an auspicious day for Buddhist.

For me, I prohibited myself from ‘killing’ lives, means meatless diets for the day. It became my another day of vegetarian cooking.

It’s never easy for my hubby to go without meat in his diet. As he insists to join me eating vegetarian every Lunar 1st and 15th of the month as well as these auspicious day of Buddish’s occasions, I have to trick his taste bud with some mock meat, and have it cooked in a way mimicking the taste of the ‘real stuff’ as close as possible. In fact, it’s very convenient to eat vegetarian dishes and taste or look like the real meat, nowadays, as there are so many artificial/ mock meat and seafood for vegetarian diets sold commercially out there in the market. In Singapore, not only vegetarian shops are selling these raw/ uncooked mock meat and seafood, even supermarkets are selling them, too. Mock meat and mock seafood are mainly made of flour, soy and/ or gluten. Some of these mock meat/ seafood items are made to look and taste almost the same as the real meat.

Hollandaise Sauce

‘Simple French recipe helps to create your perfect breakfast meal!”

Hollandaise sauce is a French sauce, and it’s commonly known to complement the eating of Egg Benedict (which consists of English muffin, poached egg, bacons and hams as toppings, and Holladaise sauce is a MUST for Egg Benedict).

This light creamy sauce has a mild flavour of buttery and eggy with a touch of refreshing lemony scent in the palate. It’s never too greasy to taste. Topping of Hollandaise sauce helps to enhance the overall taste of the plain poached egg, and with such combination, it creates a perfect mouthfeel for the palate.

Delicious Ham Rolls with Prawns & Vegetables

“Its sweetness and juiciness really whet your appetite”

So happy! Saw my recipe creation in a popular women’s magazine – Her World (under 10-minute reader recipe column), in Oct 07 issue! It has also brought me a $150 gift hamper for my recipe contribution! Yes..

A simple dish with prawn, meat (ham), vegetable and mushroom very much likeable by both hubby (who does not really eat vegetables) and child (who does not like mushroom other than button mushroom). Juicy, tasty and nutritous. You may also like one of those who do not take vegetables or mushroom, but with such combination, you will probably taste no veges or mushroom. The ham and prawn tastes are full enough to cover up the greens taste. A dish that satisfies your taste bud and nutrition needs. Just 15 min of preparation and frying time, and a delicious prawn dish will be served.
