Inspired by my mother-in-law’s salted steamed minced pork, I thought I would do a leaner one with chicken and instead of using just salt, I added salted fish for a more robust flavour. In order to draw out the fragrance of salted fish, after I have soaked it in water and cut it into small bits, I lightly tossed them in just a touch of oil in a frying pan so the exterior would be a little golden brown and crispy before I mixed them in with the minced chicken. This dish is light and really easy to make, perfect for those days when you just want to whip up some simple dishes to go with rice congee. Enjoy.
