Delicious Till The Last Bite

Thursday, December 02, 2010


The children went for bowling, I went for my medical check up, so we skipped lunch yesterday. Tyca mood wasn't good either, may be because of her Add Maths paper. To cheer her up and to ensure that she is in her jolly good mood for tomorrow Physics paper, I prepared dinner the family's favorite, Steam Fish Thai Style, Stir Fried Asparagus with Straw Mushroom and Mayo Omlette.

I spent roughly RM30 for these three dishes. How much it gonna cost you if you dine outside? I bet double the price. So why waste?


Steam Fish Thai Style/Ikan Kukus Ala Thai

Fish (any meaty white fish) weight 400-500 grams- I used Siakap, marianate with salt and pepper/ I ekor ikan siakap, perap dengan lada sulah dan garam.

4 tablespoons lime juice/ 4 sdb air limau nipis

Clean and score the fish at an angle all the way to the bones on both sides to help it cook faster. Set fish on a heat-proof plate which is able to put in a steamer./Bersihkan ikan dan kelar sehingga ke tulang. Letak ikan di atas pinggan yang tahan kukusan.

Heat water in a steamer until boiling./ Panaskan kukusan.

In a medium-sized bowl,mix ingredients (A) and (B) Stir until mixed well. Pour to the fish./ Dalam mangkuku bancuhan campurkan bahan (A) dan (B). Gaul rata. Curahkan ke atas ikan.

Steam the fish for 15 - 20 minutes./Kukus selama 15 - 20 minit
