Thai Steamed Fish with Coconut Quinoa

Thai Steamed Fish with Coconut Quinoa

Thailand is one of my favourite countries and Thai food is easily one of my favourite cuisine. I’ve only visited Thailand once but the country, the culture, the weather and the food were all really amazing and one of my favourite dishes when I visited was Thai Steamed Fish.

So for my Sunday lunch I decided to make something out of the normal for me and had a go at recreating a Thai Steamed Fish dish I ate in Thailand but with a twist, with coconut quinoa. This dish is very easy to cook but it’s also packaged with protein and lots of energy.

I think in the recent “health food” trend, one of my favourite dishes is “quinoa”. I can’t believe how easy to cook and delicious it is but one of the most interesting things about it to me is that it’s a complete protein and contains multiple essential amino acids. It’s both very easy to cook and very fast. That it’s really delicious and has a great texture is a huge bonus. So if you don’t have any quinoa in your pantry I will recommend the next time you do a food shop grab yourself some.

I didn’t season the quinoa much and you may find depending on your taste it’s a bit plain but the key to this dish being delicious is the sauce that is used to steam the fish. It’s really delicious.

Ideally serve this dish while it’s still warm or hot. You can either serve the salmon whole or you can flake it and mix with the coconut quinoa and sauce and serve as a salad. When I made this dish I made one plate with the salmon whole and the other flaked, but both covered in sauce and both equally tasty.

You can use other kinds of fish with this recipe, it doesn’t necessarily have to be salmon. I used salmon because it’s easy to get hold of, cheap and I nearly always have salmon in my fridge or freezer. So feel free to use any kind of fish you want. From experience, sea bass, sea bream, cod, tilapia and trout all go well with this dish.

A little update of my life:

We’ve finally settled and unpacked into our new home! I love our new home because we have front and rear gardens and our neighbours so far are lovely. My daughter is going to school this autumn and the local primary school in the area we used to live is ranked on the lower end of the schools in Edinburgh. We’ve always been huge fans of the Marchmont area and that we found a property for the right place and one street away from the one of the best schools in the country is a bonus.

Now we have a garden I’m now able to use the garden to take the food photos where the light is infinitely better. If you check out my photos now and compare to photos months ago you’ll see a huge difference. We’ve also changed our style of photographing food, partly in rebellion to my cookbook publisher who always insists on strange angles.

So I have two main projects for our new home. One is to decorate it (the kitchen which also doubles up as my office (I’ll share photos soon) is well on it’s way and now we’ve found all our pictures we’re going to hang them soon. The other thing I want to do is tidy up the front garden. It’s awful and looks like nobody has touched it in years. The decorating project I’ll do now but I’ll wait until the weather improves before doing the garden.

Chris also completely updated this website and there’s loads more social media things going on. The recipes are all now formatted so search engines can index and find them easier. I’ve got an Instagram feed of which I update content for all the time. There’s also now a newsletter which for now contains content from both of my websites; Egg Wan’s Food Odyssey and Liv Wan Illustration.

As you may know I’m a real busy bee and I don’t have time right now to do separate newsletters but I’m sure you don’t mind seeing a collection of delicious recipes as well as some of my illustrations? So if you are interested in my newsletter, then you can type your email in the subscribe box on the right hand side of my site and subscribe. I will send you a newsletter periodically as well as giveaway news and some other things.

Chinese Fish Fragrant Omelette

Chinese Fish Fragrant Omelette. You may be familiar with another dish “Chinese Fish Fragrant Eggplant” or even “Spicy Sichuan Eggplant” but there are in fact many “fish-fragrant” dishes in Chinese cooking and to be honest they all taste delicious!

Even though this dish is called “fish-fragrant” there is no fish in this dish at all. There is a story about this dish. A long time ago in Sichuan there was a family who were really serious when it came to cooking fish. They would use ginger, spring onion, garlic, mince, doubanjiang (chili bean sauce) and other ingredients to cook their fish with. They loved their fish!

One day the lady was cooking and she didn’t want to waste any leftovers from the dish she cooked so she used the ingredients to cook another dish. She was however extremely worried that it wouldn’t taste nice and her husband wouldn’t like it.

So when her husband came home, she was thinking about how she would explain the dish to her husband. Her husband was so hungry from work he didn’t wait for dinner to start, nor did he ask what the dish was, and he took a few bites. He said to his wife “This dish is the most delicious dish I have ever had in my life, how did you make it” She told him how she cooked it and they gave the dish the name “fish-fragrant-fry (魚香炒)”. This is where the name “fish-fragrant” comes from.

Nowadays people have invented many different dishes to accompany the “fish-fragrant” title/flavour, including fish-fragrant tofu, fish-fragrant eggplant, fish-fragrant omelette, fish-fragrant julienned pork and many more.

If you have any fish-fragrant mince sauce left over, then you can also mix this sauce with some cold noodles and it’s absolutely delicious.

This fish-fragrant omelette is a quick and easy home-cooking style dish. All the ingredients are very easy to get hold of and you should be able to purchase wood ears from most Chinese/Asian supermarkets. But if you can’t get hold of these you can cook this dish without but you may want to reduce the amount of soy sauce used.

Also once the wood ears have rehydrated and softened, before you julienne them please use your hand to tear them into small pieces and remove any tough ends. You’ll see what I mean when you handle them.

For the eggs, you can fry them line a pancake or you roll it like a proper French omelette. This is entirely up to you but one thing I would recommend is don’t over cook the egg. I like to keep the eggs in this dish very soft, tender and still a little bit runny in the middle. For me at least this tastes much better.

I hope you enjoy this dish and would love to hear your feedback.

Red Cooked Pork Belly with Lotus Root

red cooked pork belly with lotus root

Red-cooked pork belly, or as some people called it Chinese braised pork, is one of the most popular dishes in many Chinese and Taiwanese households.

There are many different ways to prepare this dish. You can add vegetables to accompany this dish, including carrots, taro and potatoes, but for this recipe I used something a bit more unique; lotus root.

People often ask me how to cook different Chinese vegetables and one of the Chinese vegetables I can asked more often about is lotus root. It seems like a lot of people have no idea what kind of Chinese vegetables this and even less of an idea what to do with it.

So for this reason, I have tried to include different ways of preparing lotus root in both my blog and also in my cookbooks.

Lotus root is a super food in both Chinese medicine and cuisine. Chinese people believe lotus root can improve your digestive system, help blood circulation, improve energy and help with anti-aging. It’s also high in fiber. Some Chinese people also believe lotus root juice is very good for getting rid of hangovers.

I simply like lotus root because of both the taste and texture of it. Nowadays, it’s much easier to get hold of lotus root outside of the East. You can usually find lotus root in Chinese/Asian supermarkets in their fresh produce fridge section.

You can serve this delicious dish with some hot rice and different kinds of green vegetables. I didn’t use a lot of water to cook this dish with, but if you think it’s a little bit dry while cooking, you can add more water.

You can also use a slow cooker to finish cooking this dish but it naturally takes a longer time to cook. Typically with a slow cooker, if you cook at a high heat it will take roughly 6 hours to cook. This can vary depending on the brand of your slow cooker but please check with your slow cooker provider or the cooking instructions provided with it for advice.

  2. Wash and peel the lotus root and slice it into 2 cm thick slice and cut each slice it into quarters.
  3. Peel garlic and leave aside.
  4. Heat up 1 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan or skillet. Pan fry the pork belly until both sides of the pork belly are golden brown. Leave aside.
  5. Heat up 1 tablespoon of oil in the wok and stir-fry spring onion, ginger, garlic and all the spices until it’s aroma.
  6. Add the sugar into step 5 and turn down the fire to medium-low heat and gently stir until the sugar starts melting.
  7. Once the sugar has melted add the pork belly back in and mix evenly. This allows the sugar to coat the pork all over.
  8. Add all the seasonings and the left over soy sauce into step 7. Gently stir and mix evenly.
  9. Transfer everything from step 8 (pork belly, sauce and spice) to a stock pot and add lotus root and water.

Add more water if it’s too dry and check it a couple times while simmering, just in case the sauce dies out. If you decide to cut the pork into different shapes, for example big cubes, the simmer time might increase. So please be aware of this.
  10. You can garnish with some blanched sugar snap peas or snow peas. Serve with some cooked rice.

Korean Kale Pancakes

korean kale pancakes

Korean Kale Pancakes. My family and I are big fans of Korean food. I really love Korean pancakes, especially ones with seafood in them, and every time I visit a local Korean restaurant this is one dish I have to order.

Easily my favourite Korean restaurant in Edinburgh is Ong Gie. They serve really authentic Korean food and while I haven’t tried too many other Korean restaurants in Edinbugh their food is very similar to what I have eaten in the Far East. Even the chef and owner are from Korea but if you do of any other Korean restaurants in Edinburgh that are worth a try I’d love to check them out.

Because I am a big fan of Korean food and Korean pancakes, I bought some Korean pancake mix from Amazon (makes me laugh you can’t buy this locally but you can on Amazon) and had a go at making them at home. One of my favourite dishes is this Korean kale pancake. Many people probably won’t want to have kale in their pancake but I’m trying to be healthy and I do love the taste of kale, which incidentally is a well known “super food”.

So I chopped up the kale and some spring onion then mixed it with the pancake mix. I then poached some eggs and made a yuzu soy sauce dressing to serve with this healthy and delicious veggie pancake.

I normally serve this as breakfast or brunch but you can honestly eat it any time of the day that suits. If you’re a vegan you can leave out the eggs and it won’t chance the taste of these delicious pancakes too much.

If you’re not a fan of yuzu juice or you’re having difficulty getting hold of it, then you can substitute with lemon or lime juice instead. Otherwise, you can leave either out if you the citrus flavour is too much for your taste.

A little bit of good news from my life. We’ve found a new property! Yay!! We’ve been stressing something chronic recently as we live in one of the worst school areas in Edinburgh but we’re moving to Marchmont which is one of the best areas in Edinburgh. To give you an idea about schools, out of 25 or so secondary schools (or high school as they call it in Edinburgh) our current school is bottom 3. Where we are moving to it’s top 3 and one of the best secondary/high schools in the country.

The new property is also really close to Chris’s work places and we will finally have fast internet (currently 1.5mb/s, new place we’ve gone for 50mb/s but can have up to 100). I’ll also finally have a big kitchen! Super yay!

So as you can imagine we’re all super excited but now we’ve got to pack and move.

But a tip for anyone who needs to rent a flat, be as fast as you can! Finding a flat in Edinburgh isn’t too hard but they go really quickly, typically within a week. When we viewed the flat (we’re renting btw) we had to view it in a group of which there were about another 15 or so people. Literally the second we saw the letting agent we called the letting agents office and said we want it. That’s how quick you need to be and especially in a good area.

Finding the correct home in Edinburgh really is a competition. Some agencies do an application process in which you get shortlisted, our new agency do first come first serve. Thank god! So we’re gone from a really crappy area to one of the best. The meadows are right on our doorstep, Old Town is a 2 minute walk, we’re doors away from the best fishmonger in Edinburgh and there’s a gym three doors away.

Anyway, I’m really happy we have finally found a new flat and my daughter will be able to go to a really nice school. Now we just need to pack and move. Wish me luck!

Oyster Sauce Chicken with Spinach Noodles

oyster sauce chicken with spinach noodles

Recently my husband has been pushing me to prepare something different for this website so I decided to have a go at making my own spinach noodles but I also used a kind of sauce that I don’t normally use.

I don’t normally use oyster sauce to cook as I’ve found most oyster sauces are a bit too salty taste. So, I rarely use them to cook dishes. Back when I lived in Taiwan Lee Kum Kee was a really popular brand for sauces and I’ve noticed their sauces a lot more in Chinese supermarkets here so I decided to give the Lee Kum Kee panda brand oyster sauce a go.

I bought a bottle of this sauce from my local Chinese supermarket and I also picked up a bottle of their Hoisin sauce as I recently went to a friend’s home for dinner and they used Lee Kum Kee’s Hoisin sauce which tasted great. My friend made some delicious chicken wraps with the hoisin sauce so I decided to make some dishes with these two delicious Chinese sauces.

I’ve always been a big fan of Lee Kum Kee’s products. I love their chili bean sauce and light soy sauce. I remember the first time I used Lee Kum Kee light soy sauce was because I didn’t have time to go to a Chinese supermarket to shop, so I went to my local supermarket bought a bottle of Lee Kum Kee’s light soy sauce and it tasted great! Now I have discover another two products from Lee Kum Kee and I was over the moon!

I used LKK’s oyster sauce and hoisin sauce to marinade the diced chicken thigh fillets. You can just marinade for 30 minutes but if you want to marinade longer for stronger flavours that’s up to you. LKK’s hoisin sauce tastes a bit like Chinese sweet bean sauce with a bit of a garlic flavour. So it’s sweet, salty with a bit of a garlic aroma. It’s perfect for stir-fries, duck wraps and marinated BBQ spareribs. It goes really well with pork, chicken and other kind of meat.

I use skinless chicken thigh fillets for this dish but you can also use diced chicken breast, mini fillet, pork mince, beef mince…etc. I made the spinach to go with this oyster sauce chicken. But if you think make noodle is way too much of hassles then use Chinese dried noodles, egg noodle, linguine, tagliatelle pasta, zoodle instead.

You can also use different vegetables to accompanies this dish, for example, if you are not a fan of mung bean sprouts then you can replace them with bok choy, chopped napa cabbage, snow peas, broccoli…etc. Please feel free to swap the vegetables yourself.

I have to use tinned bamboo shoot as we don’t have fresh bamboo shoot in the UK. So if you use tinned bamboo shoot remember to rinse it few times under cold water and soak it for 20 minutes and drain it well. This will stop the bamboo shoots tasting like they have just come out of a tin can. If you are using fresh bamboo shoots, please blanch before stir-frying.

This is a nutritionally dense dish as you can easily consume so many different vegetables in this dish. If you have any left over oyster sauce chicken and noodle. Store them properly in a clean dry container and next time when you want to reheat it. Just heat up a wok without any oil in it and stir-fry oyster sauce chicken first and add the left over noodle into the wok. Stir-fry for a couple minutes to heat, it will taste like chow mein! You can also add a couple tablespoons of water if you find it’s too dry while cooking!
