Green Chilli Dried Shrimp Recipe

When J wanted to check out a new property recently, it just suddenly dawned on me that we are about to hit the 5-year MOP for our current flat. Probably not a good time to move yet. The Thomson-East Coast MRT Line will be ready by 2020 and that may just bring up the value […]

Fish Maw Soup Recipe 鱼鳔蟹肉羹

Today’s weather seems rather erratic. Woke up to a morning of haze and then it began raining cats & dogs for hours. What a depressing start for a Friday. Thought I would make something comforting, just to chase away the blues. Gotta be a hot & piping, hearty & wholesome soup. This is Fish Maw […]

Stir Fried Scallops with XO Sauce Recipe

I love XO sauce on its own; it’s so flavoursome & moreish, I can just eat a big bowl of rice with it. It also makes a fantastic complement to stir fries especially seafood ones because XO sauce itself contains dried scallops & dried shrimps, hence it’s slightly on the fishy side. Normally, I would […]

Nyonya Style Fried Assam Prawn Recipe

I haven’t had a good Fried Assam Prawn dish for a long time until when I visited Makko Teck Neo at Telok Blangah Rise which served up homey Peranakan fare. Really reminded me of Granny’s cooking as she used to make similar assam (a.k.a. tamarind) prawns when I was little so I decided to recreate […]

Seafood Bee Hoon Recipe

Or should I call it Japchae-style seafood noodles? I drew inspiration from Japchae (a Korean stir-fry dish of sweet potato noodles or ‘dangmyeon’ and vegetables) and combined it with rice vermicelli (‘bee hoon’) to create this wet seafood bee hoon. It’s my rendition of the famous Sembawang white bee hoon with a Korean touch 😉 […]

Steamed Scallops Recipe (with glass noodles)

I love these big and juicy Fukuyama Frozen Hokkaido Scallops which I got from Fairprice. Each piece is just sweet, meaty and succulent. I don’t like the idea of over-processing scallops and I feel the best way to cook them is to keep it as simple as possible. One method is to steam them and […]

Stir Fried Squid with Black Bean Sauce Recipe

As I’m writing this post, I’m missing my favourite seafood at the same time because I can’t consume prawns, squids, etc yet due to my surgical incision that’s still healing. I can’t wait to go indulge in a seafood feast in a couple more weeks! Woo! Anyway, today I’m sharing a very simple stir fry […]

Seafood Prosperity Pot Recipe

Today I’m sharing a Seafood Prosperity Pot Recipe which is my rendition of a 海鲜一品锅 that you could get from most tze char stalls in Singapore. This is a dish that’s favoured by my folks because there are so many ingredients in it especially vegetables and is overall, healthy and non-greasy. Seafood Prosperity Pot Recipe Ingredients […]

Seafood Rice Recipe

The look of this dish is a little similar to our local Seafood Mui Fan (海鲜烩饭 or rice with seafood & gravy) that we can get from zi char stalls here. But in terms of ingredients, this dish is somewhat unique as I’ve used crunchy bamboo shoots and black fungus. Taste wise, it also has […]

Spicy Stir Fried Tempeh with Crab Meat Recipe

Sounds like a weird dish eh? Well, my newest creation is kind of similar to my earlier Sweet & Spicy Tempeh & Tofu Stir Fry Recipe, both of which were inspired by my favourite sambal goreng dish. This time, I added a touch of fusion element by combining Asian & Western flavours. The tip is to use fresh crab […]

Thai Style Seafood Salad Recipe

I accompanied Dad to the temple the other day and then treated him lunch at his favourite Thai restaurant. Every time he would order seafood salad as a side to share and I could see how much he enjoyed that explosion of flavours – sweet, sour, spicy and salty – that really tickled our tastebuds and triggered our appetite. […]

Seafood Bee Hoon Soup Recipe

I really like making my own fish or assorted seafood soup at home because I can use a fish of my choice (most of the time cod as it’s not fishy) and top with as much ingredients as I want to make it into a hearty, wholesome yet very healthy meal. All we need is a […]

Crispy Salmon Fillet on Mashed Peas Recipe

I don’t like peas but I love mashed peas. It just reminds me of a friend who dislikes potatoes but loves french fries, lol. Well I don’t exactly hate peas as I can still eat them but I’d rather not if I have a choice. I’m not sure how on earth I’d have bought a […]

My recipe in Shape Magazine July 2014 issue

Woohoo! I’m thrilled that Shape Magazine had featured my Cajun Spiced Salmon recipe (page 95) in their latest 10th Anniversary issue. Alternatively, check out my original recipe post here. Research shows that consuming salmon at least twice a week will lower the risk of cardiovascular diseases, prevent depression (benefits the brain!) and delay brain ageing. Truly […]

Crispy Salmon Salad Recipe

Now that my freezer is well stocked up with more salmon after a trip to Fassler (the salmon factory at Woodlands Terrace), I’m trying to cook salmon in various ways possible and this recipe is just one of them. I made this Crispy Salmon Salad for my post-gym lunch as I didn’t want something too […]

Hong Kong Style Steamed Cod Fish Recipe

I love Teochew style steamed fish (see my cod fish recipe here) because it was a dish that I grew up eating as my Granny who’s Teochew used to make it really often when I was little. Likewise, every time I visited my in-laws in Essex, England, my mum-in-law would cook the Cantonese style of steamed […]
