Reanaclaire Cooks Fish With Lemon Juice And Lemongrass

YES, REANACLAIRE COOKS AGAIN! In fact I am now more frequent in the kitchen, preparing my meals especially in the late afternoon.  My neighbour must be very surprised to hear my "ching ching chang chang" sounds of the kuali and ladle after a bout of quietness.  hahahaha... 

What I normally do nowadays is taking breakfast and an early dinner.  No more in-between lunch as those days.  I must cut down a meal since the weighing machine has been showing two kilograms more lately.  Two meals is more than enough for me as I am not a gym lover or showing any keenness in exercising.  If I have breakfast and lunch, my dinner will be just a mug of instant oats.... Well, am I really that disciplined???? hehehehe... So far, so food good......

I went to the SPPK market and had Basil leaves meat noodles again!
And I bought some fish and greens in the market soon after.... 
No lunch or whatsoever in between.... 
And in the evening around 4pm, I start preparing for dinner.... 
This time I steamed a pomfret with lots of lemon juice!
And decorated it with lemongrass, one mini chilli and fried garlic.... 
Steamed it for about ten minutes or so.... 
Looking at this picture now... 
and wondering why I did not put these two slices of lemon on top of the fish.... 
Why were they at the side?
Beats me!
But to my delight, the taste of the sauce turned out so-very appetizing!
Just like the one I ate in the Thai shop...
Only thing is, my sauce is too little...
Lesson learn: Put more water and add in big onions as well.... 
Well, a meal cannot be complete with some greens, right!
My favourite okra with dried shrimps and sambal... 
With two dishes, my early dinner was served.... with a plate of rice as usual....
And I finished them.... 
 All By Myself!!
