Steamed Black Pomfret & Sauteed Cabbage For Dinner

 This was a Tuesday. A nice and cool lovely morning.

Starting our morning walk at 6:59am.
~~~~~
Breakfast in town at Restoran Tet Shin, Ipoh.
We ordered a plate of mee jawa to share. I request for extra sambal.
Next, I ordered some fried ingredients from the Hakka mee stall.
Peace Lily from my garden.
Afternoon sky at 1:08pm, expecting rain any time soon.
~~~~~
Lunch in Falim.
I ordered deep fried prawn fritters and enoki fritters and 2 prawn dumplings for us to share.
Plus 1 bowl of porridge for hubby.
~~~~~
Home cooked dinner.
I bought 4 very fresh black pomfret and I took out 2 to thaw. I wanted to imitate the steamed fish we had in Chemor which I posted here. I don't tilapia so I used black pomfret. This is my first time using black pomfret for steaming.
I rub a little salt over the fish. For the topping, I used chopped garlic and chopped pickled white radish (choy poh in Cantonese). I fried the chopped garlic and choy poh in a little oil, add a little sugar and oyster sauce. Remove from pan and place over the fish and steam for 8 to 10 minutes. My steamed fish lacked colour because I do not have chopped spring onion and chopped chilies. The steamed fish tasted almost like the one we had in Chemor.
Sauteed cabbage with garlic and salt.
This was our dinner with some steamed rice on a rainy evening.


In bygone days he permitted the nations to go their own ways,
but he never left himself without a witness;
there were always his reminders - the kind things he did
such as sending you rain and good crops
and giving you food and gladness.
(Acts 14:16-17, The Living Bible-TLB)

  2. I have not eaten cabbage in awhile. I did have some cauliflower but had to throw half of it away as I had not used it in over 2 weeks and fridge smelled bad as well as something else in there. Cabbage is good though. I was a bit rainy today, cooler days in afternoon. Freezing fog when I woke up on Sunday. We went to church early and had a bit of breakfast at the new gym at our church. Then worship service. So good to be there again, in the gym. I have a new job and hope I continue to have it. I like it but it's more to do than I expected. Will see what happens! Have a blessed week!

  6. Cabbage food is tasty. My mom makes really good tasting cabbage rolls (in finnish kaalikääryle). The cabbage box is also good.

  7. I sure would love that mee jawa, looks good. All the fried stuff and prawn fritters too!

    Steamed black pomfret - we never do that even though the seller will tell me when there is a variety of black pomfret that is suitable for steaming, not all are suitable because of the smell. Usually we steam white pomfret but we are not that fond of its mild taste PLUS it is a lot more expensive.

    1. We usually steam white pomfret and not the black ones. If really fresh, the black pomfret tastes just as good.

  8. Do you have German roots? 6:59, LOL. I always took off 05:12 to arrive 05:45 at work.
    The fried food looks very tempting. Beautiful flower, too and the prospect of rain, ohhh...

  11. Congrats on getting the taste you want for that fish. I don't remember whether or not I have eaten steamed dark pomfret fish because mostly get tilapia at shops. Love your Mee jawa. Wow! Is the sambal spicy or not?

    1. Thank you, Mun. To me, the sambal is not very spicy.

  12. ...the Peace Lily is lovely and what a wonderful name.

  13. I cannot remember if I ever used black pomfret in steaming. Mostly white and silver pomfret as much more expensive, so steaming is the best for both.

  19. Delightful Peace Lily and the sunrise too! Our sun is very late coming up right now! Take care and enjoy your meals!

  20. Fried enoki like that would be yummy! Easier to buy fried food rather than deal with an oily kitchen after deep-frying.

    Oh that is A LOT of choy poh/garlic on those fish.

    1. Yes, lots of choy poh plus garlic on the fish. These make the dish very yummy.

  22. The weather isn't greatly different here as it rains anytime though it is monsoon, the rains aren't unexpected. The white-green of peace lily looks pretty!
