You probably already watch it but Iron Chef might give you some ideas on how to use the typically savory ingredients in desserts. You may also explore more Asian cuisine, as they tend to prefer less-sweet desserts and often incorporate savory ingredients into them. I've seen it on Bizarre Foods, so it must be true, lol.

There's another thing we do... we have frozen sri lakan crab in Singapore. Its a main course but i feel that it should go well with Vanilla Ice cream~~

I love Iron Chef, but I don't actually watch TV at all, so I very rarely see it, I really should download it...
However, I have just finished watching Kitchen Chemistry with Heston Blumenthal, who I have decided is my favourite chef!
His approach to food is inspiring to me and reignited my passion for food :)

For Chinese dim sum, and many countries around the world, fish is often mashed up with other ingredients including egg, to create a paste that can be formed (often, a doughnut hole sized ball) for steaming, frying, etc.

They come in various textures, but I've always thought of their textures as very much like a dessert. It's simple enough to add sweet ingredients to the paste. I have eaten artisnal kamaboko (surimi fish cake) that were sweet, airy and carmelized on the outside.

That sounds amazing! I might use that as a side for the dessert actually :)
The idea I've had is to lightly poach the fish in a sugar syrup before frying it, then putting the fried sugar fish in the freezer to chill, once it starts to freeze (not freeze, I don't want a solid fish), take it out and serve it with a caramel sauce. Any thoughts?
