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.
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.
