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!!

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
