family decided to stay home for dinner on sunday night.

5pax…& a time for me to experiment some dishes. ^^

i had a fairly good garlic steamed seabass & stir-fried asparagus at formosa delights 清香馆recently.

i thought i gave those a try..i had bought some asparagus few days back with that in mind.

my seabass was pretty good, sweet, great garlic flavour. 🙂

i added 1.5 tbsp fish sauce, 2rbsp mirin, 2 tbsp olive oil, lots of garlic, 2cm sliced ginger, 2 cut chilli padi, & some spring onions.

i fried the sliced ginger & chilli padi first, added chopped garlic, fried lightly, off fire. then added the garlic sauce & choppd spring onions on the seabass & steamed for 10mins.

my garlic stamed seabass not yet the look or taste of formosa delights 清香馆’s garlic steamed seabass (above photo)

but also pretty good la.

stirfried asparagus

stir-fried asparagus

my fried asparagus was the best of the 3 vegetables, very tasty, great wok hae, and very tender, crunchy not overcooked asparagus.

everyone liked it.

c/w formosa delights 清香馆’s fried asparagus (above photo), my version was not so different.

i am more wasteful, cutting off most of the green layer, and more oyster sauce. taste-wise formosa delights 清香馆’s version also very nice. 🙂

sweet peas with baby corn & chicken breast

sweet peas with baby corn is a dish my family like & my helper does it a lot.

today sunday she’s off duty.

i wanted to add prawns but there wasn’t any so i added cut chicken breast instead. it didn’t match as well as prawns, still the chicken breast was nice on its own & so was the vegetables.

stirfried spinach

i also did a stir-fried spinach.

recently i do very good fried veg, now preferring the dry method w/o cornflour just 清炒 with more garlic.

steamed egg

the steamed egg, the simplest dish, was akin to disaster. i didn’t want to do the usual minced pork with chopped spring onions, so experimented with mirin, tsuyu sauce & water. not the right taste, not quite “edible” la..

anyway after dinner i decided to diligently google a good recipe, i think now i have a good idea what to do next time.
