after our nice Teochew muay lunch at ye shanghai, sis & bil came over my place. they watched tv & sis made some gongfucha 功夫茶 on 7.4.2017.
bil had to go for qigong & yoga. sis decided to stay for dinner.
I had yellow croaker 小黄鱼 in the freezer, so decided to make the same teochew chilled yellow croaker 小黄鱼 dish we had for lunch at ye shanghai.
we had 3 nice vegetable dishes at ye shanghai = cabbage, spinach & leek. I happen to have all these in my fridge, so I decided to make the 3 dishes. ^^
Teochew chilled yellow croaker 小黄鱼 very easy to make. I got the fish special offer at sheng shiong for S$5.90. in that sense the same fish at ye shanghai for S$8 was really cheap.
I steamed the fish in the steam oven for 10mins, let it cool & placed it in the fridge for 1/2hr.
the chilled yellow croaker 小黄鱼 was excellent.
my sis said it was much sweeter than what we had at ye shanghai..quite true actually..
& so was my 3 vegetables. all were better than ye shanghai…
I fried ikan bilis, cut chilli padi in 2 tbsp oil, then added the spinach stems & chopped garlic. then added the spinach leaves. added 1/2 tbsp oyster sauce & fried on high heat.
this spinach was excellent, with the ikan bilis texture & flavours, very sweet.
I saw ye shanghai added luncheon meat to the leek.
so I fried the leek & 1/2 cut red onions with very tasty cheese sausage = Johnsonville beddar with cheddar. my daughter liked this dish best!
this preparation was quite similar to-
- a very tasty ham vegetable dish I had in Kyoto; &
the cabbage dish was also excellent this evening.
I fried the ikan bilis & cut chilli padi. then added the cabbage & chopped garlic. the added 5 cut taupok ie bean curd skin (each square taupok I cut into 4 strips), added just 1/2 cup water & covered to reduce & cook/soften/infuse the taupok. when almost done I added the glass noodles. I forgot to cut the glass noodles first, will do that next time before frying.
this was an excellent dish, the glass noodles & taupok were well infused, moist & sweet, tasty.
dinner was great. the food was great & easy to prepare. though sis & I took similar food for lunch & dinner, we still enjoyed every bit of it.
