Easy Steps For CNY Dried Fish Fillet Snacks

THIS YEAR IS REALLY DIFFERENT from the previous year.  One year ago on this day, I was walking or should I say, hopping on a four-legged frame in Penang.  I was on wheelchair bound for a couple of months and was on clutches for a couple of months.  Thank God I could still move around here and there but never had a chance to make Chinese New Year goodies.  Everything just had to be ordered and bought....

This year I thought I would be doing the same, just ordering a bit here and there, but as the date to CNY draws nearer, the interest of trying out baking began to grow... Thanks to my friends who "encouraged" me, urging me on to try this and that..... And my latest goodies to date is Dried Fish Fillets for CNY Snacks.

Precaution Tips :
1)  Don't do this alone, you will not make this snacks again, ever!
2)  Don't get engrossed in your conversation with your friend while the snacks are in the oven.

Sitting alone, tying up the fish fillets can be so monotonous that I wish I never get this started...
But somehow... somehow.... I managed to get two big packets tied up and baked, though one tray was badly burnt because my friend and I kept talking to each other till we smelled something burning!  LOL...

After all this said and done... here are the pictures for reference...
Easy steps to tying up the fish fillets... 
Ready to be baked... 
Less than 10 minutes in the oven... 
Do look at them every now and then... 
Don't be like me.. got distracted and they got burnt fast.... 
Then we tried one packet tying the fish fillets with seaweed.... 
After baking, they are so crispy and snacky!
Well, for a packet of the fish fillets, we could make around one small container only.. 
Easy to do but very time consuming...
And of course, it is way much cheaper than buying from the shelf... 
Oh yes, baking is definitely healthier than frying too!

  4. They are morish. These fish fillets are expansive here. How much are they in the shop?

    There are lots of postings on 'similar take ' of imitation crab sticks but I have yet to do mine. The queue at the Asian shops are long and I just got back my kitchen.

  9. I agree, baking is healthier than frying. I do not like the greasiness after frying too.

  10. Wah, you are very patient to tie the whole of two packets. Bake is definitely better than deep frying. Less oily in that sense.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
