Kam Heong

I got the chance to taste my first Kam Heong in PD & had fallen in love with this stir fry. We had squid but I'd like to share this recipe with shrimps instead.

OK first of all is to get the shrimps ready. Cleaned & marinate with a tablespoon of turmeric powder & salt.

Stir fry for a while only for the shell to change colour.

Next is to saute 2 tbs of pounded shallot & garlic. Use the same oil.

Don't forget some curry leaves...

Once golden, join in 2 tbsp of ground dried shrimps , 2 tbsp of curry powder & 2 tbsp of dark soy sauce. Stir well for a couple of minutes.

After that pour in a tbsp of corn flour diluted in a half cup of water. Continue stirring. Add salt if necessary.

Join in the half cooked shrimps. Stir evenly.

Waaalaa... Kam Heong is ready. Serve hot with white rice. If you opt for squids, I like it better if the squids are deep fried in batter. Enjoy your Kam Heong :-)

Ikan Kukus

I have been abandoning this blog I know. But I am aware of the traffic to this blog. Thank you my dear readers for keep dropping by. As for that it makes me drag myself to update this food blog :-)

The reason for my absence is due to my latest passion in sewing. Not only that, I have spent more time constructing another blog... Yes, another blog. I can't cope with 2 but now I have 3!! ;-)

My latest blog is my online shop. Do give a hop... Who knows you may like something there ;-) Here's the URL

Now back to the food. I'm sharing a steam fish recipe I got from a book. If I'm not mistaken it was Chef Wan's. Tried & my girls attacked like vultures. Hehehe... Here we go.

Clean the fish & put aside. I normally purchase cut fish. Easy to store & most importantly my steamer cannot fit a whole fish.

Slice 1 piece of torch ginger (bunga kantan), 1 lemon grass, 5 red chillies, 2 pieces of kaffir lime leaves (daun limau purut), 1 cm ginger, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 stalk of spring onion (daun bawang) & a stalk of coriander leaves (daun ketumbar).

Add in 1 1/2 tbs of sugar, 3 - 3 1/2 tbs of lime juice, half tsp of anchovies powder & 3/4 tsp of corn flour. Mix evenly.

Pour the sliced ingredients onto the fish (I used 2 types of fish)

Steam for an hour

The steam fish is ready

Happy New Year!
