this a very easy dish to cook using a ready curry paste.

  • just fry the curry paste with some coconut milk then add onions, followed by long beans & lady fingers.
  • add cleaned fish head & coat both sides, remove the fish head & set aside
  • add chicken stock & the whole 200ml coconut milk & simmer to cook the long beans & lady fingers. last add egg plants.
  • when ready to eat, boil the gravy & add the fish head, then tomatoes & & tau kee, bean curd skin.
  • cook for 8 mins. serve.

a glorious dish, very tasty curry, yum yum & great fish head & vegetables.

a friend bought dinner at 重庆烤鱼 2 nights ago.

one of the dishes was chinese wine braised chicken 黄焖鸡. the sauce was good but the chicken was dry & tough.

so i decided to make my own.

steamed chicken

i marinated 1/2 chicken in chinese wine 花雕酒, sesame oil, fish sauce, oyster sauce, corn flour & some good light soy sauce. then steamed in a steam oven for 30mins.

this preparation is similar to my very nice claypot rice. the chicken was very tender & smooth.

ginger, onions, scallions, leek

i then fried ginger, chilli padi, onions, scallions, leek & added the marinade from the steamed chicken & cooked the vegetables.

anyway i think the steaming may not be necessary. important thing just to marinade the chicken well then cook the vegetables with the marinade & add the chicken & cook for about 8mins (for debone chicken in my case), wings & wingstick a bit longer.

the 花雕酒 & sesame oil flavours were excellent, and the leeks especially nice having infused all the flavours. i found that in the dish at 重庆烤鱼. that;s why i added leek to scallions, yellow onions & also some cut ginger & chilli padi.

a very enjoyable family dinner indeed!
