Very Tasty Fish Soup, Casual Family Dinner on 29Aug2021

wife organised family dinner on 29.8.2021. ^^

I made a fish soup..everyone loved it👍🏻

basically I rendered fragrant garden claypot pomfret soup, using sliced patin and sea bream.

fried fish head and bones with lots of browned crisp julienned ginger, 1 chilli padi, 5 cloves garlic cut into 3 each, and 1/2 sliced red onions, added salt and boiled for 3 hrs, reduced to a very tasty whitish soup, added 3 tbsp huadiao wine, boiled another 1-2hrs with cabbage and added 1 sour plum mashed…very very sweet tasty soup, and added sliced fish poached and served.

wife bought kai roast duck, pork ribs & crystal jade dimsum

wen PT bought hokkien mee, carrot cake & orh lua oyster omelette from Whampoa market.

nice enjoyable casual family dinner.

RECIPE= Delicious Bakut Prawn Beehoonmee (Quick Shortcut Preparation) oo 2Aug2021

made delciious bakut prawn beehoon mee lunch for SM & JH on 7.8.2021.^^

this just a quick and shortcut way to make a delicious tasty Bakut prawn beehoon mee. lol!

save the effort of frying boiling making prawn stock over many hours.

just cook pork soft bones in chicken stock for 1.5hrs…pork soft bones will be tender and tasty and soup sweet & tasty as well.

then add cleaned deveined large prawns and boil for few minutes…prawns will be just nice and totally fresh and sweet 鲜甜 and the soup will be tasty with great prawn stock taste.

making beehoon me dry is quite standard-

1tsp fish sauce, 1tsp oyster sauce, 1tsp tomato sauce, 2-3tsp black vinegar, 1tbsp oil and 1tbsp crispy prawn chilli & toast…..voila!
