Steamed Pomfrets For Two Dinners

STILL FISHING ABOUT FISH... and I have mentioned that I wouldn't be eating fish for the next few days... seems like I did not eat my words and so the fish story is still on.... 

I watched Live again on the Gracious Wholesale, my sister-in-law wanted more fish and I readily agreed to buy some for her.... Yes, I am "kaypor" ... simply because I love shopping, online or not!  LOL... Besides her, my friend also asked me to order some seafood for her, no problem, I told her.... so that is why, I do not feel at least boring in my own home.  I have lots of shopping to do!  LOL.... 

Since my freezer is suddenly quite congested, I really do not mind eating fish and fish again for the last two evenings.  Very easily done, I just diced some garlic, ginger, small chilies... added in sesame oil, light soy sauce and chinese wine.  Too bad no spring onions, but basil leaves also can do la.... Steamed for 15 minutes and my dinner is ready!

This is Silver Pomfret if I am not mistaken....
or Ikan Tambak in Malay.... 
Usually served during weddings.... 
Bought this for RM30 on one Live Sales....
Looking at this now, I must get a slightly bigger plate....
Yesterday my steamed fish has more frills...
I dumped in cherry tomatoes and few of my homegrown okras... 
These are white pomfrets, cheaper than the silver ones....
Taste slightly more or less the same... 
But I prefer the silver pomfret anytime... 
Alright, seriously... tonight no more fish for dinner!

  1. I love steamed pomfrets, the white or the golden ones. Very light and refreshing.

    Usually, we do not steam the black ones unless they are really very fresh - some people tell me there is a variety that can be steamed, otherwise, cannot.

    We love black pomfret though, deep fried, for its stronger taste. I still have a few in my freezer. I love fish!!!

  2. My mother used to deep fry or steam pomfret for us children to eat. Nowadays I seldom eat pomfrets, prefer to eat salmon or rainbow trout instead. But I wouldn't mind eating these two pomfret fish dishes that you cooked.

  3. I know someone wouldn't mind having fish every meal.

  4. Wow your steamed pomfret looks so colourful and appetizing. First time I see people put okras in steamed fish, not a bad idea. I have been eating fish for the past few days too. They say Japanese eat fish 3 times a day which is why they are so healthy.

  5. I love deep fried crispy pomfrets so that I could chew the fish!!

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...
