I was given a bag of goodies on the day I visited mama Ng..thanks mom!In the bag, she has given me a salted yellow croaker, what to do .....got it! straight to the butcher and got what i needed.
dried shitake mushroom - chopped
Wash the and slice the fish. Lined the bottom of the plate with ginger place the fish and cover with rest of ginger. Drizzle oil and steam until done. something smells fishy.....
While the fish is done remove from steamer and let it cool. Mix together the pork, mushroom, scallion (white part ),cornstarch , sesame oil, white pepper, let it sit until fish is cool.
When fish is cool to touch remove all bones and add in to the mix along with the ginger and oil the fish was steamed in.
Steam until done.
Drizzled light soy on top and serve with rice and steamed chinese broccoli.
This can be fried aswell but I prefer this way with the juice mixed wth the rice ......
mmmmm you know what I'm talking about..remember the tapping sounds of the chopsticks cleaning the last bite of rice.......my tummy is growling as I'm writing this.. :)
I believe this is traditionally made with Mui hurn - a salted dried fish with finer taste and texture.
Tastewise .....yup good old fashion Mui Hurn wins!
We can never get bored of this old time favorite.
