My First Homecooked Oil-less Western Meal In Johor

I AM NOT ONE WHO GIVES UP EASILY when it comes to food... For those outside food which I have not tasted before, I will normally bookmark the place till opportunity arises and we go "surveying" the place... As for homecooked food, I might not be as "hardworking" but I will want to do some trial and error as to why the food does not turn out as expected...

For this case, it is not so much on the food but the Amway pan which I bought ten years ago but never used in Ipoh... and only started utilizing it in Johor... And each time I fry fish, they ended up broken in pieces in the pan.  I was very puzzled and did some research on youtube on the pan.  And after that, I wanted to try again, this time doing Their Way....
To kill my curiosity, I went to get three pieces of breast meat to "practise on" ...
And a piece of Salmon for my girl...
Marinated them with lemon zest, garlic, pepper and rosemary, salt for a few hours...
And now the ultimate move....
Heat up the pan in high heat, test the heat with a drop of water, if it dries up fast, it is ready!
I put my chicken breast meat into the pan... 
Lower the fire.... 
Lay them out... NO OIL added....
Closed the lid and let them cook for five minutes..
The excitement came when I turned them over....
Hey... No Sticking to the Pan!!
Then after the chicken are cooked, I put in the Salmon!
This is the tricky part...
To my amazement, the fish did not stick to the pan either!
All these time, NO OIL added....
Just look at the Salmon for my girl.... 
Not "broken" in any way.. not in my previous post!
And my piece of protein for myself.....
Ahhhh... this is more "complete"....
My first western food cooked in Johor!
No sticky sticky to the pan, I think I know how to use it now...
It is more for grilling... not frying....
Still have room for more improvement here and there.... 
Now I know how to use the pan... a more healthy way too...
No OIL....
And to complete our meal, we shared a piece of Mocca Cheese....  
Moral of the story:  Never give up cooking!
It is actually very interesting!
hahahahaa....

  2. I actually started to cook when I moved to my house which was in 2012. Just I learnt and experiment with cooking just few years only. Thinking of it, it is coming to 3 years this month end when I moved here and started to cook.

    And yeap, I hate it when the fish breaks when we wanted to flip it over. I have the problem too. Thanks for the tip.

  4. This time the fish is very nicely done. There goes the saying....practice makes perfect. A big clap for RC. So the trick is no oil needed using Amyway pan.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
