How lovely!! From someone who has their wok out nearly all the time, I'd love the recipes. What type of fish did you use?

I also make & steam dumplings quite a bit in a bamboo steamer. Husband doesn't eat red meat, so the fillings are either vegetarian, seafood, or poultry.

BreezyCooking: Hi I used baby red snappers for the fish.

I used veg, seafood, or poultry for my wantan or dumplings @ times too depends who is going to eat it . Or i will add shrimps inside the meat, add abit of spring oinions and water chestnut to either deep fried it or steam it too.

CharlieD: i'm staying in a sunny island call SINGAPORE

The recipe for the wantan:

Wantan skins

Minced pork/chicken
Minced water chestnut
Abit of spring onion
Minced shrimp (optional)

Seasoning:
Abit of light soya sauce, seseme oil, pepper

Tonite dinner is abit simple just a one dish meal with soup cause inside the cabbage rice, there are mushroom, meat, dry shrimp & of cause cabbages.


Soup of the day:


Meatball with Dry beancurd skin soup


Dish of the day:


Cabbage rice

Smile Chinse Doupi


I made another food last weekend, it's called Toupi. It's a food in southern China. It has three layers. The first layer is fried by mixture of flour and egg. The second layer is steamed sticky rice. And the last layer is stir fired chips made of Toupu, pickles, meat,etc.



You can see what's inside.

Rats, I was going to ask if I could come by for a lesson or two in your kitchen. Guess not. What an inspiration. My wok has been gathering dust for too long - better break it in again. Keep the pictures and instructions coming. Google maps just told me they can't calculate the driving directions between Ohio and Singapore.

see what I cooked yesterday:



Stir-fried julienne green bean and ground beef

I first break ends off green beans. Slice one green bean in half longwise and cut each obtained slice into another half longwise.
For ground beef: Season ground beef with salt and soy sauce, not too much, just for taste. Add 2 tbsp oil and blend them well (this can avoid ground beef sticking together and forming balls).
In a hot wok, add some oil and stir-fry julienne green bean until it turns into bright green color; stir in ground beef, and scatter beef over green bean. Keep on stirring until clear oil can be seen (water has all evaporated).
Pour the stir-fried mixture into a sieve to remove oil (liquid fat).
Well, now, it is ready to serve (with rice cooked).

(sorry, the pic is too large, I have no idea how to re-size it)

I'm making some 5-spice chicken wings and steamed pork wontons later in the week-- will try to post pics here.

These dishes all look wonderful! Though I'm positive that my husband wouldn't touch the rainbow agar agar with a 10-foot poll. Rainbow food, he would say. Bah! :) Looks good to me, though-- I loved Rainbow Bright as a girl.
