Hotplate Tofu with Mushroom on Egg Bed (铁板豆腐)


Did I tell you that I bought a Happy Call Pan? Actually, I bought this a while ago through online purchase which comes with some small freebies, e.g. silicon dish mat, extra sealer strips, and etc. Oh yes, I did… Hey, I am not here to promote any Happy Call products in my post, simply sharing what I have gotten for my cooking use. As usual, it’s just a piece of information, if you like to know (smile).

“It’s a steamed fish, also a steamed egg dish. 2-1, you have got the best of both!”

Here we have a healthy dish to be categorized as an easy and fuss free cooking. This steamed fish in egg paste surely is one of the best fitted dishes in this category. I learned this recipe from one of the TVB cooking shows I have watched and this, is an adaption to their recipe.

Simple Steamed Whole Fish with Tomato and Tofu (蕃茄豆腐清蒸鱼)

“Simple Chinese Steamed Fish to be prepared at home in a flash of time”

Steamed fish is always the best diet for health and diet conscious diners which include, me. :)

Nothing really special for this steamed fish, but I had excessive tomatoes to go along with it. Healthier and more complete as 1-dish meal. The tomatoes also added zesty flavor to my steamed fish and made this fish dish taste more refreshing in a more natural way.

For choice of whole fish, choose sea watered Sea Bass instead of fish from fresh water, to avoid any chance of muddy taste in it. Or, choose any other whole white fleshed fish. Remember, it has to be real fresh!

Scholar Dishes (状元肴)

“Two important dishes to be eaten on the 1st day of school to symbolise an auspicious start of formal education for schoolers”

How your cooking and dishes would help in your kid’s studies? Nothing about supplementary food or valuable nutrients in the food you cooked, it’s purely our personal belief, or called it a superstition in our family…

I am going to cook these two dishes tonight because today’s the 1st day of school of new grade for my girl. This is a traditional belief inherited from my hubby’s family, to have the scholar dishes eaten on the first day (or second) of school.
