Steamed fish with sour vegetable

1. buy some fish and sour vegetable
2. cut them into pieces
3. put them in a plate, and add oil, salt, soy sauce, ginger etc.
4. when you cook rice, just put the plate on the food steamer. the rice and fish will be ok together

I always buy fish when  I buy vegetables in the afternoon. especially when the time is over 6 o'clock in the afternoon because I 'm afraid that meat is not so fresh. but  we can see fish is live.

Banana fried cakes.

1. banana
2. egg
3. self-rising flour
4. sugar
5. a pinch of salt
6. oil for frying

A) mix egg with banana, sugar and salt
B) add enough flour to make thick mass (like half-melted icecream)
C) fry small portions (5-10 cm diameter) on flat pan with some oil

preparation - 5 minutes (or even much less)
frying time for 1 person (one banana and one egg) - 3-5 minutes / pan (on average pan can be 3-4 cakes, so it will be no more then 2 pans from that quantity)


You may change banana to any other "soft" fruit, or just "soften" other fruits (like apple) by grating it (or chopping for small pieces)
If You don't want it in sweet version - there is no must of use sugar, or even fruits. Pumpkin works well ;)

(A) SHANGHAINESE BLANCHED (pour hot boiling water over) OR POACHED (meaning let it sit in hot boiling water for 3 minutes) TO FU < coarse or super smooth To Fu> :

(1) BLANCHED or POACHED TO FU. Cut To fu into cube section on a plate drained of water;

(2) sauté chopped onion and garlic (quantity you like or available) in two table spoon of oil until smell of oil in garlic and onion smell good <but not burned...about 5 minutes max);

(3) pour the mix of step two on top of the sections To Fu ( Step 1)...add soya sauce or Oyster sauce and garnished with chopped scallion and/or coriander leaves. Pour about 2 table spoon of sesame oil before serving.

Eat with steam rice or bread....excellent with Jasmine tea


(1) STEEP <meaning soak in water to remove soil and chemical> YOUR FAVORITE GREEN VEGETABLE chopped to 3 inch or AS YOU LIKE <Kailan Tips, baby bak choy, Yu choy> and Drained of water;

(2) sauté  chopped garlic <no onions needed here> as in Step 2 above;

(3) stir fried the steeped & drained vegetable and add half teaspoon of salt. Drop the bigger vegetable like Kailan first, then Bak Choy as they cook longer and then Yu Choy and stir for 5 minutes;

(4) serve on a plate and pour oyster sauce on top < you may sprinkle raw onion as an option>

(to make it a Mediterranean fusion salad, add Tzatsiki sauce <meaning Youghurt, cucumber, lemon, salt and pepper available in supermarket> and feta (goat cheese) cheese )

No rice or bread needed...Vegetable has enough carbohydrates so that you feel satiated but not bloated so you can sleep well at night....Try with light Korean Tea ( roasted barley) to avoid caffeine

EACH DISH IS AT MOST 20 MINUTES INCLUDING PREP AND COOKING TIME..but lean back and relax and enjoy NO rush after coming home for dinner.

Bon Appetite
