Dry Spiced Tofu and Seaweed Cold Appetizer (涼伴豆干海帶)

Picture 1 of 5

Don’t know why I have been craving for this Bean Curd and Seaweed  Cold Appetizer, maybe because we haven’t got a chance to go the local Chinese restaurant that we usually have this lately. Also recently I read a forwarded email talking about a man having some cancerous disease and then he started to eat seaweed after an advise from a physician. After couple years later, the cancerous symptoms were completely gone. I know, why do I really believe, it’s a forwarded email.

However I have done some research on seaweeds. They are nutritious with high in fiber, calcium, magnesium and iodine. But always be safe not to consume too much of one food, we should always keep our diet balance with a wide variety.

This dish is really easy, just have to do some cutting. Plus the weather is so hot during the summer, I don’t cook a lot.

Steamed Rex Sole (蒸龍利魚)

Picture 1 of 5

Rex Sole is one of the fish that we usually order if eating in a restaurant back home. It is absolutely delicious, the flesh is tender and mild, not fishy at all which is very important to me. I don’t like fish that smells and tastes fishy. Moreover it is inexpensive. I’ve got this fish in the Asian market for just $1.99 per lb, so cheap and so big.

The Rex Sole is kind of “flat fish” species like a flounder, both eyes are on the same side. The fish is indeed very weird looking but flesh is soft. Another wonderful thing about Rex Sole is the spine and bones are attached to the fish tightly. When you eat you can easily remove the whole spine from the fish. No loose bones at all. Y0u can easily prepare the fish, either pan fry till crispy, or simply just steam it.

Soy Sauce Chicken Fillet Strips (醬油鷄柳)

Picture 1 of 5

Yesterday after workout, I was basically tired. But since there is no more food left, I still have to get our lunch boxes ready for the next day. We have been experiencing and cooking many pork dishes lately, so I was thinking to make Eric’s favorite, the ultimate ingredient of chicken. He loves Chicken more than anything else.

This is the Soy Sauce Seasoned Chicken Fillet Strips. You do not need any more other ingredients for the dish to make it better, just plain and simple soy sauce and some basic seasoning, and the chicken, that’s it.  I marinated the chicken strips before I went out, so when I am back I just have to fry the chicken strips and cook a quick sauce for the dish. I added some vegetables to the dish too,  it looked so much perfect and complete! And Eric loved it!

Baby Bok Choy with Oyster Sauce (蒜蓉蠔油燙青菜)

Picture 1 of 3

We are busy packing this week because we are moving, I mean real moving to a new place, into a smaller apartment. Saying goodbye to our big rented house. Also, we are moving where the Lama Kitchen originated, to a new kitchen. Moving is not fun at all, the pack unpack load unload is going to be a long process. Not sure if I have so much time to cook in this kind of mess.

After all week of tiring work, I just wanted to cook something quick and easy, boil vegetables with oyster sauce seemed to be the right choice. It is one of the easy and simple dishes you can prepare in 10 minutes, yet delicious, great choice for a no timer. You can use any of your favorite vegetables, I usually cook with Kai Lan (芥蘭), Baby Bok Choy(小白菜/清江菜), Choi Sum (菜心/油菜) or Spinach (菠菜).
