this a really simple dish & ever so satisfying, lagi shiok! a true comfort food. ^^

usually my helper will make this. she is away (back home) for a month, so i made it myself this evening on 25.6.2015.

i was eating alone, so i cooked small rice, & since i was at it throw in a sausage & liver sausage while rice was steaming. and also fried a broccoli for a balanced diet. haha!

salted fish though not very ideal for a healthy diet, lots of sodium, not to be take too often.

i bought 2 packets of minced pork from sheng shiong.

initially i was going to do a few dishes for my friends after a movie the next day. as it turned out they decided to have tea near orchard instead & happened that i also need to settle some urgent stuff on my company at the auditor’s office. so i used a packet (about 250g) & made the dish for my own dinner.

for the simple recipe, i used –

250g minced pork.

minced a slice of salted fish (the kind from a bottle, about 3 slices in a bottle).

cut a lot of sliced ginger (about 5cm piece) – i love lots of ginger.

1 tablespoon of the brine from the salted fish bottle. no fish sauce etc. it was just salty enough.

2 tablespoon of olive oil.

steaming - quick & easy preparation

steaming – quick & easy preparation

i mixed the minced pork, 1/3 of the sliced ginger & the minced salted fish & placed it in a metal dish for steaming. i used my heavy stainless steel pan & just placed the steaming dish in the water, covered & steamed for 10minutes (making sure minced pork is properly cooked).

so easy to prepare & such a wonderful dish.

2 disadvantages being (a)the high sodium content (b)made me eat more rice than usual.
