Food I cooked

The omelette was inspired by the tiny silverfish that I picked up while out shopping with the bff one afternoon. I loved the look of the tiny Japanese silver fish which is 1/3 the size of the normal ones. I knew my girl would be in love with this, as I recently discovered that she likes crispy ikan bilis. This one's even crispier and not salty at all. But more tricky to fry as they are very tiny. I decided to cut up some spring onion, gave it a quite stir in the pan, then added 2 beaten eggs and made an omelette with that. Then I sprinkled the silverfish over the top as garnish. Lovely and simple dish. As expected, she loved it!

I decided I needed to give this dish another go, this time with all the ingredients on hand. It was beautiful and hubby loved it, for sure this time. Haha. Although I thought the pineapple juice was a bit sour. I should have used the lychee juice instead. I'm not going to write out the recipe here. Please check HK's blog for it.

I bought the above packet of mix in Mustafa's shopping with the bff on another occasion. It looked very tempting and I do love cereal prawns which they serve at seafood restaurants. I cooked this for our Friday night dinner, substituting the prawns for sliced fish as the little one doesn't like prawns. I omitted the chilli padi required in the recipe in order that she could partake of this dish. I think the chilli would give it some kick.

Verdict - It was lovely, but I think there might have been a lot of MSG as I was very thirsty, lips all dry after dinner, and for a few hours after. So, eat at your own risk.

To accompany the cereal fish, I made a veg using leftover lettuce, some young corn, crabsticks & fresh button mushrooms. I also made an Oden soup but didn't bother snapping a picture of that.
