Steamed silken tofu with shrimp and egg

I saw some recipes online where people use round shaped tofu, it always intrigued me and wonder where do they get such cute looking silken tofu… Well apparently most Asian markets do carry them, I just never paid attention! It’s hard to see in the photo, but I actually bought a tube of silken tofu…

Fish Paste Rolls

Trying to come up with a good night’s meal after not making it to the super market was no easy task. Good thing I remembered there’s a tub of frozen fish paste I have been meaning to experiment with, bad thing was it’s a crazy idea to do something so “experiment-ish” on a Monday night!…

Black Bean Garlic Fish

Went to my favorite Asian supermarket last weekend and got these wonderful fresh basa fish fillets, I always thought it’s a type of flounder, but after doing some research I realized basa is a type of catfish, the strange thing is I find most catfish hard to swallow, the taste and smell is just too…

Steamed Tofu with Shrimp Paste

Been looking at this bag of shrimp in the freezer for a couple of weeks, but have not had any inspiration on what to do with them. Since it’s still considered Chinese New Year’s this week (it goes on for 15 days), and my Mama has been providing me with some delicious treats that require…

Fish With Spicy Black Bean Sauce

Hubby and little girl are great fish eaters, everytime we go grocery shop, after they chase each other with live crabs, little girl would beg me to buy the largest red snapper they have on display. Hubby’s Vietnamese heritage means he prefers his fish deep fried, I try to make it semi-healthy by pan frying,…

Fried fish with soy sauce

SinceĀ  the beginning of the year I have been looking around for more Asian recipes, Rasa Malaysia is a wonderful blogger/photographer who has a very extensive recipe website, with many great looking dishes that makes my mouth water every time I visit. Since hubby is a seafood lover, and little girl is fond of red…

Shrimp with Edamame

I remember eating this often growing up, for some reason edamame never became a stable at my own household, though when we go to Japanese restaurants, the un-shelled steam edamame is an appetizer dish we almost always order. Well this was a hit with the little girl, she said “Oh I just love those little…

Tofu with Shrimp

Hello folks, haven’t been blogging for a while, because I am running out of new recipe ideas. Realized I only had some not so fresh vegetable left in the fridge, decided it’s best to use the tofu for tonight’s dinner, with the frozen shrimp that thaws super fast, I was able to make a nice…

Microwave steamed red snapper

Little girl loves red snappers, and I am very partial to fish that do not have the “fishy” taste. This dish was sort of an accident, I intended to pan fry it and dip the meat in fish sauce, but the grilling pan took most of the fish skin off, which left it very ugly…

Halibut with celery

For a woman who HATED celery when she was a young girl, this recipe turned out amazing! I felt like there was a fifth flavor (Umami) to the dish and hubby must have felt the same, definitely a keeper! 2 white fish fillets, cut into medium bite-sized pieces 10 stalks of celery hearts cut into…

Hawaiian Garlic Shrimp

Had a bunch of leftover from Sunday night, but decided to make a new dish anyway. Hubby suggested the Hawaiian garlic shrimp recipe he stumbled upon on YouTube a couple weeks back, so here it is! 1 pound of large shrimp, peeled but leave the tail 1 head of garlic, roughed chopped (about 10-15 cloves)…

Scallops w/Saseme Sauce

Holy mack this was such a wonderful recipe! Hubby kept on praising, and little girl couldn’t get enough of the clear noodles mixed with the left over sauce. I might have over cooked the scalllops a bit, because the recipe calls for “golden crisp” on each side, but it was delicious never the less! 8…
